  1. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nose: very sweet, sweet fruits, cream brûlée, cocoa, vanilla, muffins, furniture polish, leather, oak, spices, caramel, prune, butterscotch, ripe berries, melon and acetone notes. It’s strong and very sweet closer to syrupy sweetness. Mouth: dryness, furniture polish, acetone, oak, pepper, cream brûlée, vanilla and chocolate notes. The palate is strong, dry and spicy. Be careful, because it’s extremely high proof! Finish: long, spicy, chocolate, furniture polish, dryness, vanilla and licorice notes. Stagg Jr is an one of my favourite bourbon!

    Can tolerate water;)
    • Nose
      When you get used to the alcohol, vanilla, oak, cocktail cherries, marzipan, coconut.
    • Taste
      Vanilla, cherries, slight bitterness, chocolate.
    • Finish
      The oak comes on the finish again fully and it creates a slightly bitter spice.

  5. Dramlicious scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    As the name already suggests, the Stagg Jr. is indented to be the younger version of the George T. Stagg, an uncut, unfiltered bourbon that has won numerous awards since its introduction in 2002.

  7. wekke did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Rich, sweet, chocolate and brown sugar flavors mingle in perfect balance
    with the bold rye spiciness. The boundless finish lingers with hints of
    cherries, cloves and smokiness

  8. p4blo scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Good value for the price and very decent bourbon regardless.
    • Nose
      A sweet nose with vanilla, sugar cane and a bunch of tropical fruits followed by typical oakiness of bourbon. A hint of varnish.
    • Taste
      At almost 70% it takes no prisoners. Fierce, powerful, sharp, but still sweet and enjoyable. Some notes of toffee follow the sweetness of vanilla and sugar.
    • Finish
      Long, mouthcoating, with the wood and spices taking the lead.

    Well ,you can guess by the name that this is the younger sibling of the full blown Stagg. It does not come with an age statement but should be 8-9 years old.

    Nose: Starts with a nice biting nose with plenty of vanilla , oak acetone and vinegar. not very complex, but quite a nice nose.

    Palate: Pretty strong (surprise! Not.). Sweet vanilla with coconut ,coffee and lots of oak.

    Finish: Oak. Pastries. Vanilla.

    A very enjoyable dram, not ultra complex, but for $50 it’s really nice. on the other hand for $100 (probably how much this would cost in the EU) I’m not sure it’s worth getting.
