Dram Review: George T. Stagg (2007 Release)

[72.4%・15 Years Old・Distilled in 1992・Bottled in 2007・Buffalo Trace Bottling・Limited Release]

Nose:

The nose comprises of sticky walnuts, cinnamon, brown sugar and burnt toast. Homey but heavy.

Palate & Finish:

Condensed brown sugar sweetness on the palate with the spices being rather overwhelming.  Such power displayed from the grain and oak.

The spiciness stays on for a long while with notes of leather and dried fruits slowly being released from the high proof shackles.

Thoughts:

There is a certain exhilarating thrill with this bourbon, fiery and sensational.

☆☆ [Highly Recommended]
