Maker’s Mark Unveils Their First Nationally-Available Limited Bourbon

Sep 12, 2019

Category: Vices

If you’re one of the many who appreciate a glass of finely-tailored bourbon, the Maker’s Mark namesake might be one of the most recognizable words in your vocabulary. Not only have the company’s famed spirits been in production for over six decades — becoming an industry staple since their introduction in 1954 — but they’ve also become synonymous with coveted, limited-edition releases. Now, the illustrious brand is releasing its first-ever nationally-available expression, dubbed the Wood Finishing Series 2019 Limited Release: Stave Profile RC6.

The company’s newest Stave Profile RC6 packs quite the punch, even for a bourbon’s high-strung standards. It boasts an otherworldly cask strength of 108.2 proof, awarding the spirit with a substantial 54.1-percent alcohol by volume. This comes courtesy of a unique aging process that utilizes proprietary American oak staves to trigger the bourbon’s hidden profiles, including a tonal range of ripened fruits and baking spices. In effect, the company is able to explore a vast realm of innovative practices, helping them to unlock the spirit’s robust characteristics. The limited-edition Stave Profile RC6 joins both the Maker’s Mark 46 and Maker’s Mark Private Select under the Wood Finishing Series namesake and will be available in late September for around $60.
