About Stagg Jr. Barrel Proof Bourbon (Batch 8) Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
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.
Buffalo Trace has produced a wide array of bourbons and whiskeys, featuring several collections from the Antique and O.F.C. Vintages, to Van Winkle and E.H. Taylor. Their Stagg Jr. releases are limited edition barrel proof bourbons, much like the George T. Stagg version included in the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection.
“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” (Buffalo Trace Distillery).
Buffalo Trace released their first Stagg Jr. in August of 2013 since then they have produced about two batches every year. Each batch of Stagg is blended from bourbons aged approximately 8 or 9 years, and released at a high and unique barrel proof. Proof numbers are used to identify specific batches. Launched in August 2013, this Stagg Jr. Barrel Proof Bourbon is uncut and unfiltered like its predecessor George T. Stagg.
