A really good balance of flavor, power, and refinement.

Charles Nelson immigrated from Germany with his family in 1850. His father was washed overboard during the trip and the burden of supporting the family landed squarely on his fifteen-year-old shoulders. He set immediately to work making soap and candles. Then he opened up a store to sell them. Then he expanded the store into a large grocery chain still in operation today. Eventually, he bought-out his Whiskey supplier — the Green Brier Distillery. Fate and fortune caused that distillery to close in 1909, but Charles Nelson’s great-great-grandsons — Andy and Charliere-founded the distillery, producing a range of Bourbons, Tennessee Whiskeys, and specialty Spirits.

Each batch of Belle Meade Reserve Bourbon is comprised of hand-selected barrels that are divided and balanced into two batches. That means each release is a little bit different than the one that came before it. But in the case of Belle Meade, the level of quality is very consistent — which is why it was voted #10 in the list of "Top 20 Whiskies of 2018" by Whiskey Advocate. The Spirit is bottled at a beautiful 108.3 proof — 54.15% ABV — so it has more than enough power and pleasure to go around.

Jacob
Jacob,
Only had a neck pour and it was fantastic. Nice spice followed by nice fruit flavor. Very happy with this purchase.

Solid bourbon.
 
Justin
Justin,
A very good whiskey. Immediate spicy nose with a subtle fruity flavor on the pallet. It has a smooth finish that I cannot describe but looking at the flavor swirl maybe it’s the milk or cocoa. Definitely enjoyable and pleasant sipper on the rocks. I would order it if I saw it at a bar but wouldn’t put my name on a waiting list to buy a bottle.

Too spicy for my pallet but it was a gift so I'm drinking it.

Too spicy for my liking but it was a gift.

MICHAEL,
Surprisingly complex. Walks you through all taste and temporal aspects you expect in a classic bourbon. Not too tame at any point on the journey. Not too strong/harsh - just right for me and I appreciate a little hug. I drink neat and this is dangerous to my palate - really good

Crow,
This was a pleasant surprise. Its strong but smooth, great on ice. I will be ordering this again.
 
Jason
Jason,
Red hots right off the start followed by toffee, more spicy, a bit of sweetness and liquor. Very firm bourbon that does well on a rock ice cube to open it up.

Exceptional. Well rounded and perfect neat.

Mark,
Classic bourbon in a high-proof wrapper. Provides a lot of enjoyment and hits all the right notes at a price that doesn't break the bank.

Nick,
Loved this. Not overly expensive but extra tasty.
 
Chris
Chris,
For the price what is not to like? Cask strength and still delicious. It's not the best but certainly not the worst. 9 stars because it's priced right and pretty darn good.

Erik,
A real sleeper bottle that is not on a lot of peoples radars but absolutely should be, fantastic bourbon
 
Ben
Ben,
Solid cask strength bourbon.
 
Richard
Richard,
This hits all the typical bourbon notes. It's very nice, doesn't drink as hot as the high proof would suggest. It's just not that interesting. After the first taste the finish is quick and not that complex. Great start for someone not used to cask strength. Not that satisfying for experienced bourbon drinkers.

Michael,
One of the first bourbons I tried and still one of my all time favorites.
 
Zane
Zane,
Spice and milk chocolate work together in perfect harmony. Absolutely delicious!
 
David
David,
This is my favorite bourbon! The favors explode in you mouth, with vanilla, caramel, spice, oak, and cherry. I would put this above Stagg Jr in my opinion.
