Belle Meade Madeira Cask Finish. Image courtesy Nelson's Green Brier Distillery.The Nelson brothers of Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery in Tennessee use the Belle Meade name on their sourced whiskies while their own whiskey matures, and this is a blend of six and nine-year-old Bourbons finished in Malmsey Madeira casks from Portugal. The nose has notes of peaches, apricots, crème brûlée, honey, and soft spices. The taste has a good balance of spices and fruits with hints of clove, allspice, peaches, vanilla, caramel candy, and honey. The finish has a nice kick of spices along with touches of honey and dried fruits. Nice! (September, 2018)
