Dram Review: Stagg Jr. Batch 1

[67.2% • NAS • Bottled in 2013 • Limited Edition]

Nose:

Cinnamon and hot spices. Dark chocolate, charred oak on a barbecue giving that but of oiliness. Raisins, brown sugar and vanilla. The nose has been maxed out with flavours.

Palate & Finish:

Brown sugar, cinnamon, raisins. Woove, a masculine hit of spices to the face.

A charred oak finish that is very much overpoweringly hot but still syrupy.

Thoughts:

The experience can best be described as being licked then slapped across the face by a smoking exotic dancer, whilst engaging in other debauchery acts.
