Uproxx: Thanksgiving Bourbon Pairings

We love giving thanks and we’re fortunate enough to have a lot to be thankful for. So we were obviously jazzed when Uproxx included us in their list of Bourbon Pairings for Thanksgiving.

What better way to greet your guests than with a bottle of our Single Barrel!

The Moment: Everyone’s pilling through the door. Coats are getting heaped on beds. People are full of energy and excited to be gathering as the chips, deviled eggs, and charcuterie gets passed around. The energy is going to be high and that means it’s the perfect time for a special bottle of something you won’t be able to drink at any other time — a single barrel bourbon.

The Bourbon: Belle Meade’s Single Barrel Bourbon from Tennessee’s Nelson Green Brier is the perfect “welcome” dram. The sip is unique to this year and comes from, yes, a single barrel. That means you won’t be getting this one again. It also means the flavors are dialed in. Classic notes of bourbon vanilla, oak, and caramel open this up. There’s a clear sense of popcorn, cinnamon, honey, oak, dark chocolate, and a little note of black pepper.

This bourbon is bold, exact, and definitely a conversation starter.
