Belle Meade Bourbon Sherry Finish
Belle Meade Bourbon Finish , our first release in the Special Cask Finish Series. It represents the best of both old and new world whiskey making techniques as it’s America’s native spirit, Bourbon, that we have blended and finished like a fine Scotch.
Joining the Cognac and Sherry Cask Finished Bourbons, this is the third release in the Special Cask Finish Series from Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery in Nashville, Tennessee. Barrels of high-rye bourbon, distilled mostly from a mash of corn, followed by 30% rye and aged for 6 to 9 years in new, charred American oak barrels were blended for finishing in casks previously used in the aging of Malmsey Madeira. Non-chill filtered, Belle Meade Bourbon Madeira Cask Finish is bottled at 45.2% ABV.
POINTS OF DIFFERENCE
- A proprietary blend of 9 year-old Bourbon
- Rested in used Oloroso Sherry casks to finish
- High-rye content (30% rye)
- 90.4 proof is the ideal sweet spot for depth of character
- Never chill-filtered to retain maximum flavor
