  • Intro:

    This release of Stagg Jr is bottled at 65.95% ABV. Stagg Junior is a Buffalo Trace product that is aged around 10 years and bottled at cask strength. It is distilled using the Mashbill 1 recipe. This is the 7th batch they have released.

  • Nose:

    Super sweet - caramel, toffee, vanilla. Fruity sweetness: passion fruit, melon, cherries. Faint ethanol, faint oakiness. Loaded with honey, faint cocoa undertones.

  • Taste:

    Thick, rich, loaded with caramel, toffee and subtle oak. Some bitterness, but its pretty subdued. There is pretty evident heat, but its not punishing for the proof. Lots of fruitiness also.

  • Finish:

    Long, sweet and balanced nice with some peppery oak. Very sweet still - the toffee, cocoa and cherries are real here.

  • Overall:

    This is nice and I like it as much than some of the other batches that are more recent. Their consistency is honed in and well executed.

  • Score:

    6
