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 Cask Strength Reserve Bourbon is comprised of just seven hand-selected barrels that compliment each other. That Spirit is combined with a cask or two of the same Bourbon to up the proof. 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 a Top 10 Whisky in 2018. The 113.6 proof edition was released last year, is sourced from MGP, and is bottled without chill-filtering. It’s a great dram and a great value.

Brilliant. Very sweet, almost strawberry flavor, smooth finish.

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.

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.

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.
