No age statement on the label, but aged for 8 1/2 years. Bottled at the same ABV as its entry proof into the barrel. Lush and mouth-coating. A pleasingly sweet bourbon, with caramel, nougat, and chewy toffee, mixed with ripe orchard fruit, golden raisin, and creamy vanilla. Soothing finish. A wonderful way to end a meal. (With a cigar, perhaps?) This is a beautiful bourbon and a great value given its quality, ABV, and price.

Our customers have been begging us for a bourbon, and we listened. But we couldn’t just rush out and make any bourbon. Like our internationally award winning Vodka, we took the time to formulate the absolute best tasting product we could. Aged in new charred white oak barrels, this is a bourbon worth taking the time to savor and enjoy. Similar to our ADK Vodka and ADK Gin, 601 Bourbon is gluten free and uses only local ingredients to help ensure the finest product.
TASTING NOTES: This unusually smooth Bourbon is born from 100% local corn. A hint of natural sweetness on the nose, it develops a depth on the palette with hints of vanilla, raisin with a spicy peppery finish. You know it's whiskey but without the burn. Try it straight up or with a drop of water to open up the fragrances. Enjoy!
We at Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery are proud to reintroduce the world to Belle Meade Bourbon, a brand our triple Great Grandfather brought to market more than 100 years ago.
In keeping with the history of the brand, and to assure only the finest quality Bourbon is labeled Belle Meade Bourbon, we painstakingly selected barrels sourced from one of the nation's most notable distilleries. To ensure that no other Bourbon in the world tastes quite like Belle Meade Bourbon, we created a proprietary blend of four barrels per batch using two different mash bills and yeast strains. Each barrel is aged between 6-8 years and is hand-selected to complement the other barrels in the batch to create the signature flavor profile that makes Belle Meade Bourbon the award-winning Bourbon of choice for the discerning whiskey drinker.
Tennessee- Blend of 6 to 9 year old bourbons finished in fine champagne XO cognac casks then non-chill filtered. Nose is filled with notes of creme brulee, faint cinnamon, and an oak base. Medium-bodied and soft mouthfeel. Subtle flavor profile with a long finish full of baking spice.
This uncut, barrel-strength bourbon is bold and flavorful. The caramel aroma is rich. On the palate, it’s quite tannic and drying, but the flavor shines through, showing toffee, caramel and dried cherry, with a spicy finish of clove, dried fig and date. The alcohol feels remarkably balanced despite the high proof. It needs no adornment: just add a chunk of ice and enjoy.91 points Whisky Advocate
If Picasso sketched bourbon, it would look like Booker’s, with deep golden and auburn hues. But higher-proof color can deceive. Not here. Think bourbon warehouse: oak, caramel, tobacco leaf, cinnamon, vanilla; floral with hints of honey and blueberry. And then it really comes alive. Oh, baby! Candy corn, crème brûlée, maple syrup, nutmeg, and traces of chipotle and cayenne. The proof strength doesn’t show. I recommend this batch neat for full, unrelenting flavor.

Considered the founding father of the modern bourbon industry, Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. left an indelible legacy on whiskey making. His dedication to distilling began at the close of the Civil War when he purchased O.F C. Distillery. There, he developed innovative techniques that are still in use today. Made by hand, this Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey has been aged inside century old warehouses constructed by E.H. Taylor, Jr. Barrels are evaluated and selected to create a perfect blend of distinctive character that is like no other. It follows the regulations of the Bottled in Bond Act of 1897, which Taylor was instrumental in passing. The Bottled in Bond label requires that a bourbon be crafted from barrels all distilled by a single distillery, in a single season, stored in a bonded warehouse for four years before bottling, and bottled at 100 proof. This bourbon is a true sipping bourbon that honors the uncompromising legacy of E.H. Taylor, Jr.
Bottled exclusively from a dumping of 200 barrels or less, the brand carries the name of the Rev. Elijah Craig, the man who discovered the method of making true Kentucky Bourbon when he stored his wares in barrels that had been charred in a fire.
A worldwide favorite, especially when creating mixed drinks with a sophisticated, contemporary flair. Hints of pear and apple compliment floral aromas and mix with a taste of honey and spice. Smooth and mellow with a unique, long and soft finish. 80 proof. 40% alcohol/volume.
