The nose is floral with vanilla and hints of toffee. The palate shows dark wildflower honey, vanilla, ripe persimmon, dried black cherry, caramelized raw cane sugar, a touch of plum and a healthy dose of baking spices throughout. The lengthy finish echoes the honey, black cherry, vanilla and spice notes, and adds a touch of malt and chocolate. Belle Meade Bourbon Madeira Cask Finish has been cut to 90.4 proof and, as with all of our products, is never chill-filtered. The result is a Bourbon of particular distinction and uncommon character. Have it neat, with a splash, over a sphere of ice, or create a distinguished twist on your favorite whiskey-based classic cocktail. However you drink it, you'll know you are enjoying a rare spirit made for the discerning whiskey drinker.
