Belle Meade Madeira Finish Bourbon
This is a high-rye bourbon aged for 6 to 9 years in new, charred American oak barrels and blended for finishing in casks previously used in the aging of Malmsey Madeira. The nose offers a combination of vanilla and baking spices, dry oak and a red wine influence, along with light mint and herbal notes. The palate is rich, with more vanilla, dark red fruits and wine tannins, oak, clover honey, and rye spice. A moderate length finish continues on the sweet and rich sweet side, with vanilla, char, chocolate, brown sugar, and just a touch of black pepper.
