A fabulous Bourbon gem from Stagg Jr. that we would gladly sip every single day.

Some argue, but since the original distillery building on this site dates from 1775, most folks consider Buffalo Trace Distillery to be the oldest continually operating distillery in the US. It sits on the banks of the Ohio River in Frankfort, Kentucky, on the same 150 acres — completing 245 years of continuous operation. It even used the: "medicinal" loophole to operate during Prohibition. Now owned by Sazerac, its history includes a veritable Who’s-Who of historic Bourbon owners and Master Distillers who continue today to craft some of the finest and most popular Whiskey brands in America.

Stagg Jr. Barrel Proof Bourbon — The George T. Stagg line of Bourbons is one of their top-line Spirits. As the name would imply, Stagg "Jr." is cut from the same cloth, but a few years younger on average and is released twice each year — and each release sells out like white lightning. Stagg Jr. Barrel Proof Bourbon Batch 13 follows the papa-bear Stagg formula, but it is aged eight years and bottled at an impressive 64.2% ABV. And boy-howdy… this is some mighty-fine juice.

Smartass Corner:
The George T. Stagg line of Bourbons is named after one of the most famous owners and master distillers in the Buffalo Trace lineage.

Charles
Charles,
Even though the high amount of alcohol is apparent, this is a surprisingly smooth drink. The spices and complex flavor distracts from the heat for me. I usually don't enjoy whiskeys that burn; but Stagg Jr. impresses me.

Dat,
Wow!! Batch 13 with proof 128.4 is by far the best batch yet. I managed to snag this one late December 2019 during a Christmas run on getting last minute presents. The good Lord blessed me with this oh so complex nectars of the gods. This is up there with Macallan rare cask batch 1 from 2018. Yes! That good!

Craig,
This was the first high proof bourbon that I tried about 14 months ago. It blew my mind and I also drink it neat. I wish it was not allocated. So good. A great balance of flavors and a finish that is hot but also sweet. Amazing bourbon.
