  • Excerpt: As it stands it’s a really good “shelfer” cask strength Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey that unfortunately doesn’t see the shelf as much as it used to.

  • Intro:

    This is the 14th Batch of Stagg Jr - a ten-ish year old barrel proof release from Buffalo Trace featuring mashbill 1 at barrel proof.

  • Nose:

    Toffee, praline, lots of sticky caramel candies and some light cherry. Lovely and rich on the nose, the proof is definitely apparent but it's not stinging hot.

  • Taste:

    Rich on the palate, plenty of caramel, cherry, cocoa. Quite a bit of heat on the palate but with great viscosity. Tons of oak, toffee, brown sugar. Heat grows with time but the viscosity is just wonderful.

  • Finish:

    Long finish. Oak structure is perfect with plenty of toffee, caramel, pepper, and cherry tying everything together.

  • Overall:

    Once again, Stagg Jr is a powerful invitation to experience some of the best that barrel proof bourbon has to offer.

  • Score:

    7
