Stagg Jr. // Kentucky, USA
First introduced in August 2013, Stagg Jr. is still uncut (no water added) and unfiltered like its bourbon "father" George T. Stagg. Distilled at Buffalo Trace, each batch will vary in both proof and age, but expect the bourbon to be around 8-9 years old with proofs ranging in the 130+ area. Stagg Jr. will be considerably more affordable and easier to find than its predecessor.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak barrels.

"The nose fills with brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon--easy like Sunday morning. The palate finds heat, cherry syrup, more brown sugar and new hints of citrus. The finish is very long with smoke and sugar taking control."
