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.

Tasting Notes

"Nose offers a combination of vanilla and baking spices, dry oak and a red wine influence, along with light mint and herbal notes. The palate is rich, with more vanilla, dark red fruits and wine tannins, oak, clover honey, and rye spice. A moderate length finish continues on the sweet and rich sweet side, with vanilla, char, chocolate, brown sugar, and just a touch of black pepper. Delicious, and an excellent job interweaving the Madeira influence with the bourbon itself. "
