This is a 10 year old single barrel from Belle Meade. It was a pick done through Craft Brewed. Belle Meade is bourbon sourced from MGP by the Green Brier distillery in Nashville, TN. This is bottled at cask strength.
Definitely MGP - brown sugar, maple and tobacco. Theres some faint cracked pepper and a nice cocoa note also.
Medium mouthfeel, very little heat though. Sweet honey, orange zest, caramel and clove.
Medium and spicy. Lots of clove, allspice and tobacco.
This was good and I enjoyed it but it was really striking how much the palate and finish reminded me of WT distillate. This isnt a bad thing, though, and the sample was quite enjoyable.
