We just got our shipment in of Buffalo Trace’s latest and greatest, Stagg Jr.
George T. Stagg built the most dominant American distillery of the 19th
century, during a time known as the Gilded Age of Bourbon. Uncut and unfiltered, this robust bourbon whiskey ages for nearly a decade and boasts the bold character that is reminiscent of the man himself.
Stagg Jr. is bottled at barrel-proof (the bottles we have are 67.2%) and is non-chill filtered. It’s younger than George T. Stagg, coming in at 8-9 years old, half that of its older, impossible to find brother.
Tasting notes from the distillery: “Rich, sweet, chocolate and brown sugar flavors mingle in perfect balance with the bold rye spiciness. The boundless finish lingers with hints of cherries, cloves and smokiness.”
