    Maker\'s Mark Red/VIP/Affirmed - same bourbon?

    G'day all,

    Can anybody here shed some light on this matter? The VIP and Affirmed and the standard Red, is it all the same age?

    I have yet to open my VIP or "Affirmed" (bought at MM in July) so I have no way of telling.

    'Preciate any info!

    Yeah Makers produces one bourbon (in the US) and lots of bottles...however several of my friends tell me that it tastes better out of a bottle with your name on it.

    Thanks for clearing that up. The Black seal is available in Europe for around 90 Euros (US$ 110) and Gold seal for about the same. Don't think it's worth that much when on such a measly income as mine!
