  • Intro:

    This is the 10th Batch of Stagg Jr - a ten-ish year old barrel proof release from Buffalo Trace featuring mashbill 1. Stock image.

  • Nose:

    Bright cherry, and other red fruit. Honey, lots of cocoa, oak and pepper. Strong cola and cherry note, reminiscent of some early batches of ECBP. Some ethanol, not a ton.

  • Taste:

    Thick, rich, powerful. Lots of heat, but balanced against a great body and lots of viscosity. Cherry, vanilla cream, oak, toffee and tobacco. Fruity and juicy.

  • Finish:

    Long, powerful but a bit hot although not punishing for the proof. Oakier here, which balances well against the cherry, fruits, vanilla and toffee. Not too dry or tannic.

  • Overall:

    Well done once again, this release of Stagg Jr seems to show that BT has found and can maintain their impressive stride with the bottling.

  • Score:

    7
