Belle Meade Bourbon Madeira Cask Finish™ is the third release in the award-winning Special Cask Finish Series. Like its predecessors, careful crafting and patience results in a product that showcases both a taste of America's Native Spirit and the Old World wine-making methods used in Madeira production.
To finish this offering casks were selected which were used in the production of Malmsey Madeira. Malmsey is the richest and sweetest tasting of the Madeira styles and is renowned for the depth and complexity of its honeyed flavors. This is a result of the wine being "cooked," fortified, and aged in the time honored traditions of wine making on the island of Madeira.
The casks are then filled with a proprietary blend of well-aged Bourbons. The robust flavors from the casks pair well with the spicy high rye content of the Bourbon and create a striking profile unlike any other whiskey in the world.
