George T Stagg Straight Bourbon Whiskey Barrel Proof Bounty Hunter Private Selection 2021

$399.95

Stagg Jr Single barrels are a scarcity on the market, mostly due to the fact that Buffalo Trace releases only a small quantity each year. The mash bill is not fully disclosed to us upon selection, but we are fairly certain after tasting through the samples that this is Mash Bill #1 (which is more wheated). While each private selection is a unique representation of the brand based on the location in the rickhouse, the selections must fit the profile that sets Stagg Jr apart as a whole. The team at Buffalo Trace scrutinizes each barrel prior to determining which program the product will go into and then qualifies it based on its overall flavor profile. 

This beautiful and powerful Bourbon is rich, sweet and bountiful, showing notes of butterscotch, caramel and coffee on the nose. Savory notes of baking spice and pepper linger in the background, creating a balanced roundness to this selection. On the palate, bold flavors of toasted marshmallow, spiced cherry compote and warm vanilla shine through, despite the higher proof. It is exceptionally smooth and rich on the finish, making it hard to put it down.
