Belle Meade Bourbon Sherry Cask Finish, our first release in the Special Cask Finish Series, 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.
We sample and select barrels of Bourbon, none less than 9 years old, from our Reserve stock and blend only the best in extremely small batches to create a Whiskey of exceptional character. We then finish this extraordinary blend in Oloroso Sherry casks imported from Spain until perfection is achieved.
Tasting Notes -
Nose: Sweet full notes of dried fruits mingle with caramel and floral notes
