Don't cut anything. It is smooth and taste great the way it is and for the price it is u would be cheated if they cut it down. Leave it alone!!!!!

Again, Beam cutting the quality of their product because they don't have enough supplies.
This is getting to be a broken record from Beam. They constantly say they don't have enough....when they do nothing but expand their territory.
Well, stop trying to put a product in every market around the world...and you won't run out.
No one is forcing Beam to put Maker Mark in every country and airport around the world. And then say....sorry, we ran out. They are stealing from Peter to pay Paul. Which is totally uncool.
I will no longer support any Beam brand of bourbon. I am tired of them raising prices and cutting proof for no other reason than they want to have one bottle on every shelf in the world. But, don't care if their core customer has to drink a young, under proofed, and substantially higher priced version of what they drank a few years ago.
I refuse to believe their BS.
Beam brands: Makers Mark, Knob Creek, Bakers, Bookers, Beam, Sunnybrook, Old Grand Dad, Old Overholt, Jacob's Well, Devil's Cut, Red Stag, and Basil Hayden's. Plus many more labels.
If you need a new brand of bourbon...that won't try to pull the wool over your eyes for profits sake....
Try these producers:
Heaven Hill makes a version of a wheated bourbon, which is what Makers Mark copied, called Old Fitzgerald. Old Fitz also has a 100 proof version...which is real tasty.
There are a handful of wheated bourbons...all of which stemmed from the Old Fitzgerald line.
They are: Makers Mark, Weller, Rebel Yell, Old Fitzgerald, and David Sherman. These bourbons all taste very similar except for their age and proof. Meaning, if you get the same proof and age in any of these labels...the bourbon will be quite similar. Not identical, but very similar.

Sorry, I did make a mistake on the list of wheated bourbons.
It's David Nicholson...not David Sherman. Mostly sold in Missouri.
