I live in Cincinnati, but do a lot of frolicking across the Ohio River in Kentucky (my husband is a Kentucky Colonel!) We lovingly call Maker's Kentucky's answer to the rest of the South's sweet tea. Would I buy it again? You bet! It makes a fine cocktail. (Did you know that an Old Fashion is a tarted up version of the very old Bourbon Punch?) And it is de riguer in Juleps. But I think it is best in a double old fashion glass with a big hunk of ice to open the flavors up. If you are ever in Loretto, KY, try to take a tour of the distillery. It is a gorgeous site and for those of age, it ends with a tasting.

I think that this is the college students go-to for good Bourbon due to the price point and value. I think it's good quality and that it tastes great. I have no problem buying this or giving it as a gift to other whiskey lovers, however I can buy other whiskeys that taste just as good for the same price or less. But I'm more of an international liquor person than most people I know.

Yes, Yes, Yes! Maker's Mark has to be my favorite whiskey. It is decent on price and not to harsh to the taste. I mix Maker's Mark with Vernors or Coke (Vernors is my favorite). I am definitely a repeat customer and will purchase this anytime I don't have a beer in my hand. It definitely is the best if I drink it right before bed. Puts me out and I sleep like a little baby.

What can't I say about Makers Mark?!?! If you love Jack & Coke, you must try Makers & Coke. You will never go back, guaranteed. It is extremely affordable for the quality. The best bourbon/whiskey for they everyday person. If you are an aficionado then you can also try Makers 46. It is not to be mixed with anything as it is amazing on the rocks.

I am newer to the Whisky game, but as an introduction this was what i was given and now love! I have bee drinking this with ginger ale, or soda with mint, it is a very smooth taste and would recommend it to anyone. I just bought my first bottle of it and it will be something my bar will be stocked with from here on out.

I wish I could write a really great review, but I find whisky so hard to talk about!

So I will say what little I know and it's that this is delicious. I enjoy whisky but not normally straight, however I can drink this straight. It is smooth and I think people just venturing into whisky will enjoy it.

Maker's Mark is a great call whiskey for manhattans, olf fashioned, even neat or on the rocks. I've had top shelf bourbons that aren't as good as Maker's. The taste is smooth, sweet, without the aftertaste of the cheaper wells. If you're a new whiskey drinker definitely start here.

I quite enjoy this whisky on its own or maybe with some ice. Has a great Bold Flavor and perfect for a relaxing night. I have repurchased this product several times and I will most definitely continue that. I have recommended to friends and I will continue to recommend as friends.

My all time, go-to whiskey. Its much more affordable for a decent tasting whiskey. Its especially good in a cocktail since the price isnt too expensive. Better than using a really pricey whiskey. I love it so much i went to the distillery and have a barrel aging for me right now!

What are good mixers for this? My husband usually makes an old-fashioned but I'd like something with a little more flavor.
