Review #1396 – Stagg Jr. Batch 6

The Schtick: This is the 6th Batch of Stagg Jr – a ten-ish year old barrel proof release from Buffalo Trace featuring mashbill 1.

Review #1396 | Bourbon Review #613

Distiller: Buffalo Trace

Bottler: Buffalo Trace

Brand: Buffalo Trace

Selection: N/A

ABV: 66.25% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Big toffee. Impressively bold, rich, and savory. Sweet cream, toffee, waffle cone, black cherry and clove.

Taste: Thick mouth feel, rich. Good deal of heat, but lots of chocolate cherry, oak and pepper. Sweet toffee and vanilla bean.

Finish: Long, rich and hot. Cherry cordial, tobacco, pepper and oak. Lots of vanilla bean as well.

Overall: Consistently great. Lots going on, and all of it good. I’m glad to be throwing back to this batch and finding the newest ones trading punches with it. The consistency here is welcome.

Thanks for reading!
