Playboy magazine highlights Maker's Mark bourbon [News]


The June 2010 issue of "Playboy" includes a short write up about Maker's 46, a new bourbon from well-known Kentucky distillery Maker's Mark. I haven't yet tried the stuff — 25,000 cases ship in late June, and I'm guessing the Maker's Mark Lounge at Fourth Street Live will have some — but the magazine says it has "a slightly higher proof (94), a slightly higher price ($35) and a hint more smoke that marries nicely with Maker's signature sweetness." 

To be honest, I'm not a big bourbon guy. But it did give me an excuse to pick up an issue of "Playboy."
