"Belle Meade Madeira Cask Charles Nelson was born on July 4, 1835, in a small town in the Mecklenburg-Schwerin state of northern Germany. In 1850, his father decided to move the family, which included five other siblings, to the United States for a chance at a better life. During the journey across the Atlantic, John Nelson passed away and Charles — just 15 years old at the time — found himself the breadwinner of the family. After working at several odd jobs throughout the Northeast, Nelson settled in Nashville and opened a grocery store built on the foundation of his three best-selling products: coffee, meat, and whiskey. Demand for Nelson's whiskey soared during Reconstruction such that he shuttered his grocery store and opened up his own distillery. The distillery, commonly known as “Old Number Five” due to the fact that it was given Distillery License #5, became one of the largest in the United States and was the first to produce Belle Meade Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Old Number Five was eventually forced to close its doors during Prohibition, but today, Charlie and Andy Nelson — Charles Nelson's great-great-great grandsons — have taken up the family business once more. This Belle Meade Bourbon Malmsey Madeira finish is the third release in their award-winning Special Cask Finish Series. Malmsey is the richest and sweetest tasting of the Madeira styles and is renowned for the depth and complexity of its honeyed flavors. This blend is comprised of 6- and 9-year-old bourbons, the robust flavors from the casks pair well with the spicy high rye content of the Bourbon and create a striking profile. Cut to 90.4 proof and nonchill-filtered, this distinctive Madeira Finish received a Double Gold Medal 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Enjoy it neat, with a splash, over a sphere of ice, or in any classic cocktail. Pick up your bottle today!

The nose is floral with vanilla and hints of toffee. The palate shows dark wildflower honey, vanilla, ripe persimmon, dried black cherry, caramelized raw cane sugar, a touch of plum and a healthy dose of baking spices throughout. The lengthy finish echoes the honey, black cherry, vanilla and spice notes, and adds a touch of malt and chocolate.
