Belle Meade Bourbon, from Nashville-based Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery, is an ‘industry leader in terms of creativity,’ Thomas says, especially the brand’s Special Cask Finish Series. Carefully selected barrels are blended in small batches and finished in second-use vessels, such as Oloroso Sherry casks or barrels previously used to age Trubee Honey.” -Bill Thomas, Jack Rose Dining Saloon + Whiskey Library (Washington, D.C.)
