Stagg Jr is a product of Buffalo Trace distillery, and shares a lot of characteristics with his older sibling, George T. Stagg bourbon. Stagg Jr is a younger expression of this whiskey, it is unchill filtered, and bottled at barrel proof of 63.2% alc./vol. It is an uncompromising, bold, in your face bourbon, packed with flavor and complexity (especially for its age). It is a challenging spirit, not for a beginner, so if you are looking for something more accessible and easy to enjoy, we would not recommend this dram, but if you are looking for something to challenge your palate with, quickly grab a bottle while supply lasts.
