The flavor is buttery and sweet, with a long, smooth finish. Maker’s Mark is consistently enjoyable and delights most whisky drinkers (spelled in the traditional Scottish way). The alcohol is subtle, making it sippable neat. You cannot go wrong if you start, or end, your whisky journey with Maker’s Mark. Their lineup consists of other treatments, with variations in caskets and aging, but start with the classic Maker’s Mark.
