Belle Meade Reserve
This was previously offered as a “cask strength” release, but in 2020, transitioned to a 108.3 proof bottling. According to Nelson Green Brier, “While we love the idea of a cask strength whiskey, we found there was more variation in each batch than we wanted. In an effort to tighten up the consistency of quality from batch to batch, we found that 108.3 proof was really the sweet spot for the flavorful, bold, rich profile we originally envisioned when creating the Reserve.”
Belle Meade Reserve is a small batch blend of two different mash bills and two different yeast strains.
