Belle Meade Cask Strength Single Barrel 12 Year is a limited edition cask strength version of its bourbon. The total release features just 25 barrels, all of which were matured for 12 years. Expect slight variances in ABV and tasting notes, with each bottle hand-labeled with its barrel number, proof, and fill date. The expression will become a new annual release.

Tasting Notes

"Peanuts, baking spices, and brown sugar combine for a richly-scented nose. It's all things vanilla to kick off a sultry smooth palate, with bitter dark chocolate, spicy oak, eucalyptus, and coffee coming through on the back. A long finish offers sugary spearmint gum, vanilla, and barrel char. Impressively smooth and balanced given its a cask strength release."
