Formerly labeled "Stagg Jr."
George T. Stagg built the most dominant American distillery of the 19th century, during a time known as the Gilded Age of Bourbon. Uncut and unfiltered, this robust bourbon whiskey ages for nearly a decade and boasts the bold character that is reminiscent of the man himself.
In the glass, Stagg Batch 18 reveals a deep, mahogany hue, promising a rich and full-bodied experience. The nose is an aromatic journey, with notes of dark chocolate, dried fruits, and a hint of leather. On the palate, the bourbon unfolds with a symphony of flavors—decadent caramel, toasted oak, and a robust spice. The high proof amplifies the intensity, providing a warming and satisfying mouthfeel. The finish is long and lingering, leaving impressions of vanilla, toffee, and a subtle smokiness.
Rich, sweet, chocolate and brown sugar flavors mingle in perfect balance with the bold rye spiciness. The boundless finish lingers with hints of cherries, cloves and smokiness.
97.5 rating. “Spectacularly mind-blowing!”
