Makers is sooooo overpriced. There are 100's of other labels that are made to just as high a standard...and don't charge and arm and leg. Makers is only 6yrs old and 90 proof....they are not bottling liquid gold...why charge so much?

If the readers want a bourbon made with wheat...please keep your eyes peeled for Weller, Old Fitzgerald, Rebel Yell and the Van Winkle line. You will get alot more bang for your buck with any of these labels.

There is no reason that adding some extra staves to a barrel for 3 months is worth adding $5-10 per bottle. Give me a break. Why don't they just say that a Leprechaun supervised distilling of every barrel?

Reasons to pay more for a bottle of whiskey: extra age and extra proof.
Those are the only two reasons to pay extra for whiskey....Makers has neither of them.

Usually, if you see an add for a end up paying for that add when you buy the bottle. I recommend buying a label that you have never seen an add will save you money in the long run. And, the whiskey will usually be as good or better at a much better price.

Have fun searching out new whiskies to try. And remember...they don't have to be expensive to tase good. Price and flavor have very little to do with each other.
