    MM 46: The Bottle

    Here's a bottle of the new Maker's expression. Whether what's in the bottle is good or not, the bottle itself is mighty purdy.

    There are more photos of it on the MM Facebook page.

    Interesting.

    I don't see it in the OLCC list of new products for April, so I wouldn't expect to see it here until May at the soonest.

    Question is how much they going to charge for that purdy bottle?
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    It hit the Ohio list for April and is in the $32.00 neighborhood, IIRC.

    Not too bad. What is the price of the "regular" makers?

    That's not a bad price.
    Standard MM here in MI is $26.99 at state minimum.
    I'm expecting 10 bucks more for MM46.

    Re: MM 46: The Bottle

    Anyone know what the name means?

    Anyone else starting to feel that this may come under the heading of "be careful what you wish for..."?

    Re: MM 46: The Bottle

    ‘46′? Why is it called ‘46′?

    There’s another difference besides the higher proof – and this difference is why this new Maker’s is called ‘46′, because ‘46′ is a descriptor of this new Maker’s other differentiating factor: French Oak staves, No. 46 French Oak, to be exact. What happens is that the whisky is taken out of the barrel, and one-inch charred staves are loosely attached to the inside of the barrel, at which time the whisky is put back in for an additional five to eleven weeks.
