The first batch of Stagg Jr. is here! It may be a younger, more approachable version of the George T. Stagg bourbon, one of Buffalo Trace's most loved (and hardest to get hold of) bourbons, but that doesn't mean that Stagg Jr. is any less fantastic. It's unfiltered and bottled at barrel strength, this one being a sturdy 67.2% abv. As the old expression goes "Like father, like son".

Yes this bourbon is big- yes it packs a punch, but man does it do it well. Tons of great flavones and very complex. The only down side is tracking a bottle down- one of the best I have ever tried

I just picked up a bottle for a grand total of 60 bucks. Current going price sees it running 89ish at the local liquor stores here. Reminds me a lot of George Stagg just a young bourbon. I love the the burn!

Talk about a Bourbon that hits you like a bat! This stuff is just outstanding. I refuse to mess with it! Neat or with a little ice or water! I don't see the point in using this for a Manhattan or Old Fashioned. Has a fantastic nose that will sort out any cold! On the tongue, I find it fiery and flavoursome...no burn for me! The proof is higher, so naturally you will have that warm feeling in the bit of your stomach! Simply put...it's stunning!

This is amazing bourbon, but you need to put it in a Glencairn and add water for all the wonderful flavors to come out to meet you. No more burn...just fantastic. But, please, keep hating on it. More for me!

Rich and heavy, with more front end burn and fewer tannins and bitterness than GTS. Fruit notes are stronger, roasted cherry and raisin. Heresy, but I prefer it over GTS. The extra 7 years and great premium are simply not worth it when this is available.

This is the best Bourbon apart from GTS Senior, dont care what anybody says.

The bottle I just got is at 132.1, which is Batch 3. Haven't tried any other Staggs, but I have tried Evan Williams Single Barrel and it reminds me of that but with A LOT more alcohol burn, which I enjoy. I let it sit for 15 minutes and the nose opened up quite a bit. All the wonderful aromas you would expect are there. Tasted neat, it is a shocker! Flavors compete with alcohol and for me the flavors win but the alcohol burns enough that I had to concede to adding water. With water, the nose opens up to sweet and lighter spicy notes, and the flavors are much more distinguishable with cherries and vanillas and toffee and all the great flavors you would expect. Seems less "deep" in flavor compared to Evan Williams SB but it is such a unique experience it makes up for it.

I don't know if any of the people reviewing here have actually tasted George T Stagg, but I have to say that this is pretty close. It's younger, but with some time in the glass, the deep wood and sugar notes are all there. In my mind this is a cult whiskey for serious connoisseurs. It's not to be taken lightly, and with the 60%+ ABV you have to know what you're doing because it will knock you on your ass if you're not careful. You can barely find this in the states, so it's rare! Beyond that though, its a great dram to have with an ice cube, splash of water and a coke or diet coke on the side.

Stagg Jr. is good whiskey. Offourse if you expect Stagg Jr. to be a George T. Stagg you will be dissapointed. But keep in mind it's ½ Price of the SR and with this in mind you've got a pretty decent Bourbon. I really like it.

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.
