Contrary to what you may have heard, not all bourbons are created equally – and they most certainly do not have to be made in Kentucky. But you could make the argument that the good ones sure are. A small-batch bourbon whiskey, Maker's Mark is known for it's robust yet smooth taste. What also sets it aside on the shelf, obviously, is the fact that every bottle is hand-sealed with red, dripped wax. It looks great, tastes great and has a fantastic tradition (nearly 55 years). Have we convinced you yet?
