Buffalo Trace announced the latest Stagg Jr. at 128.4 proof. SRP is $49.99.
According to a press release, the 13th release since the series started, this latest offering follows suit for all previous Stagg Jr. releases in that it is uncut, unfiltered, eight years old, and with a taste profile similar to its elder statesman, George T. Stagg.
The company said, tasting notes include dark cherries, followed by honey. On the palate, there are flavors of cream caramel mocha followed by cherries, giving it a full-bodied mouthfeel, they said. The finish is described as a long finish of toasted oak, dark chocolate, and cinnamon, they said.
Stagg Jr. is released twice a year. The 128.4 batch is being released to retailers now. The next release, number 14, will be late spring/early summer.Stay In Touch!
