Bourbon American Whiskey No Age Statement - 2014
World Whiskies Awards
Interesting fact… Stagg Jr. whiskey spells its name whiskey as it originates in America. Had it been produced in Scotland its name would be Stagg Jr. whisky, instead of whiskey.
There's nothing about this whiskey that'd cause you to dislike it; if you had The Stagg Jr as part of a blind tasting you'd be raving about it. Everything in this rye-forward bourbon is present, and the nine years it's been aged compares very favourably with its 16 year old brother. It's peppery, spicy, with a big molasses kick and an incredibly rich mouth-feel: a very good whiskey indeed.

Too beastly to inherit the name Stagg, although makes a good mixer.

The first batch we received at our store 3 out of the six bottles had fruit flys. It lacked the refinement of the SR. If you want a good high end mixer yes, but don't expect a great sipping experience. Not bad just poorly executed.
