Makers Mark Bourbon Cask Strength 111.4 Proof

"Though it's bottled at a higher proof than either Maker's Mark or Maker's 46 bourbons, Maker's Mark Cask Strength has a lower proof than most cask strength whiskies. To us, a higher proof can overwhelm a bourbon with a heavy alcohol taste. And at Maker's Mark, we've always been about creating whiskies that taste ""yummy"". Although Maker's Mark goes into barrels at a consistent entry proof of 110, the proof of Maker's Mark Cask Strength will vary. As water evaporates from the barrels as our whisky slumbers, the proof increases. But if you've ever lived in Kentucky, you know our summer temperatures can fluctuate wildly - so the rate at which our bourbon becomes the 'angel's share' also differs. As a result, we're never 100% sure what the proof will be till we open the barrels."
