Limited release of 9 year old Belle Meade Bourbon finished in Oloroso sherry casks. Made with carefully selected barrels from their reserve sourced stock, and blended in small batches. A unique, enhancing finish to Charlie and Andy Nelson's lineup, as they also begin distilling their own spirits in earnest, at their newly opened facility in Nashville.

Tasting Notes

"Plenty of sherry and wine fruit on the nose, from that Oloroso cask, along with caramel, from the bourbon itself. Velvety, silky mouthfeel, and smooth on the palate, with a wonderful caramel and vanilla sweetness. Hints of spice, plum, cloves, molasses and brown sugar lurking in background. A light, quick burn fades to a pleasant warming on the finish. "
