STAGG JR. BARREL PROOF BOURBON WHISKEY
It has all the rich and complex flavors you get at barrel strength. Uncut and unfiltered, this robust bourbon whiskey ages for nearly a decade and boasts the bold character that is reminiscent of the man himself, Mr. George T. Stagg.
Proof: 125.0 – 133.0 (ABV Varies)
Origin: United States
Distillery: Buffalo Trace distillery
First introduced in August 2013, Stagg Jr. Barrel Proof Bourbon is 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.
Stagg Jr. Barrel Proof Bourbon Whiskey Tasting Notes

Buffalo Trace Distillery is the oldest continually operating distillery in the United States and includes the rich legacies of master distillers such as E.H. Taylor, Jr, George T. Stagg, Albert B. Blanton, Orville Schupp and Elmer T. Lee. Today, the distillery is still family-owned, operating on the same 130 acres of land adjacent the Kentucky River as it has for over 200 years.
