  • Intro:

    Distilled by Nelson's Green Brier using a wheated mashbill, this whiskey comes to us from the same folks bottling Belle Meade. This is my first brush formally reviewing their own distillate, so I'm looking forward to it. Let's get to it.

  • Nose:

    Sweet, but extremely musty. Young, lots of pulp, apple, some banana, light cardboard note. The youth is unshakeable.

  • Taste:

    Thin, though heat is in check. Musty and young once again, lactic almost, sour and loaded with cardboard, pulp, wet grass and vegetation. Ick.

  • Finish:

    Short finish, and thankfully so. Youthful, malty, rough and loaded with telltale signs of “new craft”. Not a fan.

  • Overall:

    NGB is doing excellent when you look at their Belle Meade products but this is from their own stills, and needs tons more time to become palatable. If you’re looking for craft, and hoping for TN provenance ....buy Chattanooga instead.
