  • Intro:

    This is the 15th Batch of Stagg Jr - a ten-ish year old barrel proof release from Buffalo Trace featuring mashbill 1 at barrel proof.

  • Nose:

    Pure praline and brown sugar on the nose with undertones of oak, coffee, tobacco and some peach and cherry. Bold, powerful, enticing.

  • Taste:

    Powerful on the palate, lots of structure and viscosity while the heat is well behaved. Brown sugar, oak, some orange peel, pepper and lovely sweet oak. Light cherry character and cocoa.

  • Finish:

    Long finish. Oak, caramel, cocoa and cherry cordials. Amazing how much flavor carries through the finish, this one's a real treat.

  • Overall:

    Lovely and rich, another testament that amazing bourbon doesn't need to be twenty years old. Stagg Jr Batch 15 knocks it out of the park once again.
