Stagg Jr is made from the same mashbill as the Buffalo Trace Antique Collections George T. Stagg product. This is aged "almost ten years" per the label and is bottled at cask strength.
This nose is a chocolate overload. Its delicious. Cherry, cinnamon, vanilla and some spice. Ethanol is here, but it minds its place.
Much less hot than the other batches, save for 4. Molasses and cherry all over the place. Its delicious, but a little different flavor profile than 4. More sweet maple and fruity rather than savory clove and pepper.
It's long. It's complex and it feels a lot like eating cake. It's sweet and well blended.
This and Batch 4 tie in my mind. Theyre both different but embody a lot of the same things I expect from a good barrel proofer. I think its safe to say that there was significant improvement from Batches 1 all the way up to 5. This is good to see.
