Maker's isn't one of my faves, so I haven't been paying too much attention to this. Here's an old magazine article by a booze writer I like, he groups bourbons into a few categories and his point is if you like A, you might like A1 or A2 as well, mo' bettah than you like B or C. There's a method to his madness.
I'm glad to see that the Maker's folks have come to their senses. Quite a bit of publicity for not much money, and everyone's happy. Win Win!

FWIW, I find myself drinking more of the Wild Turkey Rare Breed for sippin' - and mx w/Evan Williams black label (it's no longer a 7 year bourbon as it was when this was written) - by this fellow's reckoning I'm a 'spicy and peppery bourbon' fan. But when it comes to whusk, it's ALL good.
