Whisky Advocate: Nelson's Green Brier Launches First 108

For the first time since 1909, Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery is selling whiskey that it made itself. The Nashville, Tennessee-based distillery will launch Nelson’s First 108 Tennessee whiskey on July 4th, the birthday of founder Charles Nelson, offering free tours and tastings all day. The whiskey, which features a mashbill of corn, wheat, and malted barley, is available only at the distillery gift shop. There are two variants: Classic is a 45% ABV blend of multiple barrels, while Single Barrel comes in at cask strength (which will vary depending on the barrel, but has clocked in at 60.5% ABV or higher so far). Both whiskeys are sold in half-size (375-ml.) bottles, priced at $40 for Classic and $60 for Single Barrel. READ MORE
