Whisky Reviews for George T. Stagg 2002

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.25 points

  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I could not decide between this one and this higher strength offering to try?
    https://www.whiskeybase.com/whiskies/whiskey/86594/george-t-stagg-2001-barrel-proof
    In the end I thought 64% was high enough, discretion is the better part of valour remember. This one I had to take time with, experimenting with water, quite nice but I found it hard work as non bourbon drinker, it certainly has some depth of profile that apart from the 15 year Pappy Van Winkle I tried earlier today I haver never found in any other bourbons.

    ● The dress.
    Red copper, tears of extreme delicacy, very tight threads with little drops almost motionless.

    ● The drop on the palm.
    Lots of leather, sugar and love apple, cotton candy, caramel, sental wood and poppies.

    ● The nose.
    Very dense, a monolith that leaves little room for other than varnish and lacquer, at rest!
    After two hours, he relaxed.
    Beautiful fat, opulent and sweet notes. The sweet necklace, vanilla licorice.
    A good dose of sental wood, salted butter catamel, pudding and cinnamon.
    The camphor is offered a place of honor with a beautiful worn leather, the whole draws on the old red wine.
    A very elegant profile is born, Parterre of flowers: Lilac, violet and ice cream poppy, a little violet and cotton candy.

    ● The mouth.
    Sweet and very elegant for this first meeting.
    The flower! Here the tongue is covered with lilac, violet and poppy ice cream.
    Will quickly evolve on hardiness, leather and chilli, toasted wood, nutmeg and camphor, burnt bread and salted butter caramel, some cooked corn.
    Sweet back on the sweet PEZ before he gives life to licorice.
    The end of the mouth will go to the side of the herbs with bitter lavender and dandelion, a saving return of poppies maintains the elegance.

    ● The final.
    Long, dominated by a mixture of flowers: violet, poppy and lilac, salty licorice / sweet / bitter. Gentian and patinated tannins.

    ● The empty glass.
    An explosion of ice poppies, camphor and wood smoking.

    A superb Bourbon, very elegant. A double face that is perfectly balanced between the flowers and the rusticity, perfect balance therefore.
    I really like.

    If it had to be given a subjective note, it would be a 89.

  4. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Tried the 2017 version side by side with the 2015 I have opened and the 2015 is noticeably better.

    N: Initially locked in by its massive abv, but giving it time to open out fully reveals a ‘plethora of complexity’ [yet another potential heavy metal album for the taking].
    T: Awesome arrival. Impressive how the complexity of this brand [unlike the Handy] has been maintained.
    F: Sweet pancake>medicinal.
    C: Still remains the unbeaten ‘bourbon monster’ champ, if that’s your style.Scores an A-
