Belle Meade is the first release from Nelson's Green Brier after the distillery went silent for Prohibition. Charlie and Andy Nelson discovered the site of their great-great-great grandfather's distillery during a family trip and decided to start up the family business again. The bourbon is made in very small batches, only 4 barrels each, and has a high rye content, based on the original family recipe. The horses on the label are a tribute to the Belle Meade Plantation in Nashville (one of them even had a filly named Bourbon Belle.)

Tasting Notes

"Very balanced and smooth, with caramel corn sweetness, orange, vanilla and just the right touch of leather. The percentage of rye makes for a spicy finish, with lots of allspice, pinecone and black pepper. Bit of an astringent tickle, but not mad at it."
