Ivan,
Very sweet with caramel notes. Probably now one of my favorite bourbons.
Stagg Jr. Barrel Proof Bourbon (Batch 8)
Andreous,
This is an expression that is very strong with a high alcohol tone to the noise. After adding a big amount of water you can then smell the caramel and the wood, but that's about all. This is not one I would buy again, it's to much and to strong for my taste.

Harsh due to the high alcohol content. Need to let it mellow with some ice melt

Pretty good. Doesn't taste like a full proof. Worth a try.
Stagg Jr. Batch 11
Michael,
Too hot; not a lot of complexity even watered down. Would not buy again.

Tried Batch 12. Tastes thick, warmer than the air around it. Perfect sipping.

A lot of alcohol upfront, but perfect for mixed drinks

Thomas,
Very hot at first but tons of flavor. One of my all time favorites. Flavors vary slightly with the batches making it extra fun when you get your hands on a different batch.

Craig,
Stagg Jr is another spicy bourbon, high alcohol, that is not quite as smooth as Bookers but very similar flavor profile. Both need a bit of ice to open up the bourbon.

If you are looking for a fight, try it neat, but a splash of water really accents the vanilla notes.

Sweet molasses, so smooth

guest,
Explosive taste of corn with a hint of rye. Hot and thin on the tongue, yet no wash of ethanol to worry about. This one is for the bourbon lovers that likes their drink to kick their palate. Smooth scotch lovers may find this a bit too scorching. Good for energetic heat rather than relaxing swirls. "

Derek,
A barrel proof bourbon from BT distillery for around $60? How can this not be amazing? Very deep complexity. This begs to have a little water added. Perfect on ice.

The attack of the proof followed by the zest of the spice on this bourbon is intense and it's very good.

Stagg Jr. Barrel Proof 126.4. Nice high proof bourbon with lots of flavor. nice heat going down and to the nose. rich medium lasting flavor. sweet, chocolate and brown sugar flavors mingle in perfect balance. The boundless finish lingers with hints of cherries, cloves and smokiness.

Mitchel,
2017 Stagg jr is the best bourbon I have ever tasted.

Michael,
Very close to that seventh star but the imbalance of how strong and bold this whiskey is makes it a task at times to enjoy. I will add that rocks accompany this bourbon in my glass at all times now and with that, it improves vastly the ability to taste and savor this cask strength whiskey.

Antti,
It is an outstanding, intense, Bourbon by Buffalo Trace Distillery. It has a bitter birth with notes of bitter oak, vanilla & brown sugar; while a sour life adds notes of dark chocolate & rye spiciness; that leads to a long & rich death with hints of cherry, candy, corn, clove & smoke.

Love it. It is a warm. A drop of water or a swirled ice cube may be what you need at first.

The Jr. Stagg hits you hard up front with a nice burn. The finish is smooth, but not too smooth. If you like bold high proof bourbons give this one a go
