  • Intro:

    This is the 12th Batch of Stagg Jr - a ten-ish year old barrel proof release from Buffalo Trace featuring mashbill 1. Stock Image

  • Nose:

    Honey, oak, ethanol, cherry and pepper. Heavy ethanol along with super rich cherry and caramel.

  • Taste:

    Toffee, oak caramel and coffee. Nice structure with a full mouth feel. A bit of heat but balanced well against the cherry, toffee and some vanilla bean.

  • Finish:

    Long, a bit of heat but rich with coffee, toffee, cherry cordial and vanilla bean.

  • Overall:

    Solid and consistent, delightful at every turn even despite the heat. I think I might like this just a hair less than 13, but we're splitting hairs here. Can't go wrong snagging one of these.
