    Re: Cask Strength Maker's

    It is an interesting label from an industry standard. Cask strength or 100 proof, even in 375s, would be a welcome product if the price is right. While I hope it available more broadly than the gift shop or special tours, it is still a step in the right direction even if that ends up being the market.

    Heck, I'd fly back to KY for a 2nd time this year just to visit Makers to purchase a few of these.....

    I, for one, will welcome our new cask-strength half-bottle Maker's Mark overlords.

    I thought they had barrel shortage?
    It was less than a year ago they were drooping the proof.
    This must be a gift shop release, although I would love to see it hit the market.

    YES!

    To the supply woes, think about it, 5 years of barrel proof whiskey in a 375mL for $40 is still more profitable than 6-year cut-with-water whiskey in a 750mL for $30.

    I'd love to try it as well, but methinks a 375 BP MM should be about $30 (a 750 of the regular is $25 here....so a BP 750 should be more than fair at about $50-60 for a 750). But, I bet you're more likely to be right than my dreams of its pricing
    Think about how stupid the average person is.....then realize that half of them are more stupid than that.

    Re: Cask Strength Maker's

    I'm totally game to try one of these. I like the wheated bourbons and cask strength is all the better. The standard Makers is too thin for me so this one is worth a shot.

    Re: Cask Strength Maker's

    Bring it on...would love to try this. Recently toured Makers and thought the "over aged" was really tasty. Regular Makers just lacks some flavor and is too thin for me so maybe this will do the trick.

    I will make the 6 hour drive down the day I hear its available. I enjoy MM and think that a much higher proof version could be outstanding.

    Would not be surprised if it is a gift shop only bottle. They seem to be working for the others.
