George T Stagg Bourbon Whiskey 750ml
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.
George T Stagg’s Whiskey palate follows in much the same way, lacking the typical Stagg bearhug that has come to define the brand. Spice is the showcase of the palate, overshadowing its medium-intensity vanilla and leather notes. Lush toffee sweetness and dark chocolate with hints of vanilla, fudge, nougat and molasses. Underlying notes of dates, tobacco, dark berries, spearmint and a hint of coffee round out the palate.
The George T. Stagg in the BTAC honors the man who helped keep O.F.C. Distillery afloat and then formed E.H. Taylor, Jr. & Co. with partner E.H. Taylor Jr. After Taylor parted ways, Stagg grew the distillery to be America’s leading bourbon producer. With this achievement, the distillery took on Stagg’s name, but we all know it as Buffalo Trace Distillery today.
