Lower barrel entry proof. Bigger flavor. This limited-release bourbon showcases the influence of Maker’s unique 110-barrel entry proof (also known as BEP). It was crafted to amplify the balanced wood sugars, softer tannins and lasting finish achieved with our low 110 BEP. Special finishing staves were used to amplify notes of vanilla and sweet spice that naturally occur from lower BEPs.

BEP is the fifth and final bourbon in the Wood Finishing Series chapter.

AROMA: Toasty vanilla, subtle spice, caramel
TASTE: Bright, vanilla, brown sugar
FINISH: Medium body, balanced, rich caramel, dry baking spices
PROOF: Cask Strength (110.7)

Our exploration of wood finishing began with the creation of Maker’s Mark 46. This discovery opened new doors on how Maker’s could be expanded on while staying true to its original taste vision. Since then, we’ve amassed over a decade of innovation and experimentation in wood science with Maker’s Mark Private Selection and the limited releases of our Wood Finishing Series.

We look forward to what’s still to come on this journey – and hope you do, too.
