About George T. Stagg 2019 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
The 2019 release was distilled in 2004 from Kentucky corn, Minnesota rye, and North Dakota malted barley. The barrels for this release then spent at least 15 years and 3 months in their charred new American oak casks, patiently maturing. Finally, the whisky was bottled at a cask strength of 116.9 proof ? a touch lower than previous releases, which comes down to the barrels being stored on the lower warehouse floors.

About George T. Stagg
Situated on the Kentucky River in Frankfort, Kentucky, Buffalo Trace Distillery takes its name from an ancient pathway that migrating buffalo used when traveling westward. The trail was well-known among Native Americans and was eventually used by pioneering settlers who crossed the Ohio River and followed the buffalo trace to the Western frontier.
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.
