The high-rye blend of Belle Meade was designed to make it a versatile Bourbon. It shines whether served neat, with a splash, or on the rocks but it's also outstanding in a well-made cocktail. The high rye content and 90.4 bottling proof helps Belle Meade Bourbon to stand up to mixers that often mask other Bourbons, thus making it the perfect Bourbon for your favorite classic or craft cocktail creation. Maple syrup and caramel with floral fragrances and a citrus zest nose. Bold rye spice palate followed by notes of vanilla and caramel with some heat returning to the tongue. Smooth, long finish with mellow cherry and dried plum fruit notes.
This addictive high-rye Bourbon, the first offering from the reincarnated Nelson's Green Brier Distillery, offers a pleasing caramel scent and dark, spicy flavors that evoke toffee and gingerbread, plus a citrusy tartness around the edges that leads into a mellower vanilla note.
