George T. Stagg 2011 Release

Country: USA
Region: Kentucky
Type: Bourbon
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 71.3%
Score: 92 points

If you’ve been overpowered by previous Staggs, the 2011 release may be more to your taste. It’s slightly milder than previous Staggs, with a muted nose of allspice, nutmeg, soft rye bread, and touches of oak and maple syrup…but no burn. The taste is thick and oily with a nuclear blast of chili powder that fades slowly to reveal oak, vanilla, and almond notes that linger through the finish.
