Belle Meade Bourbon Single Barrel
Belle Meade Single Barrel Bourbon is selected through a tasting process in which a team of our staff members scrutinizes samples from a group of barrels age 9 or more years in search of barrels with a superior flavor profile worthy of being bottled as a Single Barrel. To pass muster the barrel must show the characteristics that are the hallmarks of a superior well-aged Bourbon; balance, depth, and complexity.
The few barrels that make the grade are then set aside to be bottled at true cask strength. We do not cut our Single Barrel Bourbon to proof and it’s never chill filtered. It is bottled just as it was sampled in the approval process and that means the proof of every bottling is different. That’s why every single bottle has the barrel number, proof, and the barrel’s original fill date written on the front label.
This high proof and ample maturation means that Belle Meade Single Barrel Bourbon always has a bold flavor that is best appreciated neat, with a splash of water, on the rocks, or in a well made cocktail. However you choose to enjoy Belle Meade Single Barrel Bourbon rest assured that you are drinking as true a representation of pure Bourbon as one can possible get without drinking it straight from the barrel.
