First released in 2013, Stagg Jr. is annually released in small batches with the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection. Each release varies in proof. Sharing many characteristics with the George T Sagg, this bourbon is high strength and bold. It is usually between 8 and 9 years making it a little more accessible.
Rich hardwood in colour, Stagg Jr. is the perfect balance of sweet and spice. Sweetness, caramel, a hint of vanilla and oak come through on the nose. On the palate, rich oak and vanilla to start, followed by a magnificent build of pepper and rye spice. Dark chocolate, citrus and cherry on the finish with lingering cloves and smokiness.
Vol.: 750ml ABV: 64.85%
