Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky […]

So far, here appeared only one Bourbon and it was a classic Jim Beam. Time for another representative from Kentucky, Makers Mark. Recently, in the world of Bourbon became loud, as the manufacturer intended to reduce the ABV. However, because of the criticism, they decided to leave 45% ABV. Bravo, a company that listens to its customers. Probably the main reason for trying to reduce the ABV was, present also in the Scotch or Japanese whisky, growth in demand and declining stocks. The price wouldnt be reduced, which would translate into real profits. Makers Mark remained unchanged, we should be happy.
