On October 1, 1953, William Samuels Sr. purchased Burks Distillery, which was situated in Loretto, Kentucky, for $35,000. Five years later, the distillery released the first bottles of MakerÁ¢€™s Mark Bourbon Whisky, which featured the distilleryÁ¢€™s distinctive red wax seal. The distillery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, and was listed as a National Historic Landmark in 1980.

Under the auspices of Robert Samuels (WilliamÁ¢€™s son), MakerÁ¢€™s Mark Distillery announced the release of a cask strength bourbon in 2014. Made from a mash of corn, wheat and malted barley, the bourbon was aged for approximately six years before being bottled at cask strength. Uncut and unfiltered, the bourbon has an aroma of caramel, Indian cooking spices and roasted corn that give way to notes of caramel apples, brown sugar and bananas on the palate. The finish has hints of citrus, orange zest and apple cider.

NOTES OF

SCENT & FLAVOR

COLOR

Deep colour, almost opaque.

NOSE

Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.

PALATE

On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.

“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking

ORIGINS

Quinta do Seixo Vintage is a unique expression of this renowned estate, where a combination of soil, slope inclination, sun exposure and reduced amount of available water contribute to the production of intense and complex wines.The 100-year-old vines producing Port create wines full of intensity, character and freshness.
