Like the William Larue Weller releases a couple years back, I felt that the Stagg releases (after being brought down in strength) were almost too easy-going. Like the new Weller release, this bourbon has improved greatly, to classic status. Clean, balanced notes of toffee, molasses, nougat, polished leather, dates, roasted nuts, cinnamon, subtle summer fruits, teasing mint, ground coffee, nutmeg, and a hint of tobacco. Long, balanced finish. An outstanding bourbon! -John Hansell (Spring 2010)
A special offering by Buffalo Trace and named after the 19th century whiskey salesman who built one of the largest and most influential distilleries in the U.S. at the time, now called Buffalo Trace is was known as the George T Stagg distillery for many years. The 2009 Release of George T. Stagg was distilled entirely in the winter of 1992 and aged on the 1st and 3rd floors of Warehouse K. It was drawn from 109 hand selected barrels and bottled at full strength without chill-filteration. 49.81% of this whiskey's original volume was lost to the angels. This whisky is 16 years and 7 months old. Jim Murray's Bourbon Of the Year, Whisky Bible 2010.
