Review #560. Belle Meade Single Barrel 9yr 2051 Virginia ABC

Review #560 | /r/Bourbon Review #311 – Belle Meade Single Barrel, 9yr #2051, Virginia ABC Pick

The Schtick: This is a 9yr single barrel MGP cask picked and bottled at cask strength by Nelson Greenbrier Distillery in Nashville, TN under the Belle Meade label.


Distiller: MGP/LDI (Indiana)

Bottler: Belle Meade (Nelson’s Greenbrier)

ABV: 53.35% ABV

Age: 9 Years

Source: Sample


Nose: Big bold maple, molasses and allspice. MGP bourbon, if Ive ever tasted it.

Taste: Medium mouthfeel with fairly tame heat. All spice is prominent with some caramel, cocoa, clove and vanilla.

Finish: Medium length with growing spice. Reminds me of a blend of BT and WT101.

Overall: Overall this is good but so generically “bourbon” that I’m going to give it a 5. Definitely good, but also not really notable in any respect.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 5
