Maker's Mark® Cask Strength

This is Maker's Mark® Bourbon in its purest form. Bottled at barrel proof and nonchill filtered, Maker's Mark® Cask Strength ranges from 108 to 114 proof depending on the barrels.

Surprisingly smooth, this bourbon retains the signature, front-of-the-palate flavors of Maker's Mark® while amping up the notes of oak, caramel, vanilla and spice.
