George T. Stagg
Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
No age statement
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Intense. Tangy. Paint varnish. Sour fruit. Damson plum jam. A musty note of damp floor in an abandoned house.
Palate: Briefly sweet then a sharp alcohol bite. A powerful wood and sour fruit combination of flavours. But quite well integrated given the strength.
Finish: Dry. Prunes and liquorice.
Comment: A big, muscular bourbon. George T. Stagg? Good guess...For a stag night maybe...
Nose: Oak varnish, cherry pie, a little black treacle. A burnt orange tang adds to the complexity.
Palate: An explosion of flavours, cherries, fizzy sour sweets, oak sweetness, BBQ sauce.
Finish: Memorable with a sweet meaty element.
Comment: Wonderful, the balance does not give away its strength.
