Proof66 Notes

Belle Meade Bourbon is owned by Nelson's Greenbrier Distillery of Tennessee. It is made in honor of Charles Nelson, who is said to have bottled and sold the brand in pre-Prohibition times as well as the line of race horses from the Belle Meade plantation. As a bourbon, it will have the requisite 50%+ corn grain content but also has a sizable portion of rye. This is the 9yr Sherry Cask Finish version which gives the aging a special finish in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks, imparting a different color and character to the whiskey (a practice frequent in the single malt scotch world but much more uncommon in the bourbon world).

According to the filing with the federal Tax and Trade Bureau, the bourbon is produced by contract by Speakeasy Spirits of Tennessee (formerly filed with Strong Spirits of Kentucky).
