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
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!
