Belle Meade Bourbon Madeira Cask Finish is the third release in the Special Cask Finish Series. To finish this offering we select casks which were used in the production of Malmsey Madeira. Malmsey is the richest and sweetest tasting of the Madeira styles and is renowned for the depth and complexity of its honeyed flavors. This is a result of the wine being “cooked,” fortified, and aged in the time honored traditions of wine making on the island of Madeira.
We fill these casks with a blend of 6- and 9-year-old Bourbons. The robust flavors from the casks pair well with the spicy high rye content of the Bourbon and create a striking profile unlike any other whiskey in the world.
Belle Meade Bourbon Madeira Cask Finish has been cut to 90.4 proof and is never chill-filtered. The result is a Bourbon of particular distinction and uncommon character.
- Nose: Floral, with vanilla and hints of toffee.
- Palate: Dark Wildflower honey, vanilla, ripe persimmon, dried black cherry, caramelized sugar and baking spices and a soft, velvety mouth feel.
- Finish: Lengthy finish mimicking the palate with a touch of malt and chocolate.
