bout George T. Stagg 2018 Kentucky Straight Bourbon WhiskeySituated on the Kentucky River in Frankfort, Kentucky, Buffalo Trace Distillery takes its name from an ancient pathway that migrating buffalo used when traveling westward. The trail was well-known among Native Americans and was eventually used by pioneering settlers who crossed the Ohio River and followed the buffalo trace to the Western frontier.
Buffalo Trace Distillery is the oldest continually operating distillery in the United States and includes the rich legacies of master distillers such as E.H. Taylor, Jr, George T. Stagg, Albert B. Blanton, Orville Schupp and Elmer T. Lee. Today, the distillery is still family-owned, operating on the same 130 acres of land adjacent the Kentucky River as it has for over 200 years.
Buffalo Trace has produced a wide array of bourbons and whiskeys, featuring several collections from the Antique and O.F.C. Vintages, to Van Winkle and E.H. Taylor. Their Stagg Jr. releases are limited edition barrel proof bourbons, much like the George T Stagg version included in the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection.
From Buffalo Trace’s Antique Collection, this special George T. Stagg is an uncut, unfiltered Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey distilled in spring 2003 and matured in Warehouses C, H, I, K, P, & Q.
This extremely hearty whiskey ages in new charred oak barrels for no less than 15 years. Straight out of the barrel, uncut and unfiltered, the taste is powerful, flavorful and intense. Open it up with a few drops of water, sit back and ponder the wonders of the universe. 2019 Gold Medal - Los Angeles International Spirits Competition. 2019 Chairman's Trophy - 98 points - Ultimate Spirits Challenge.
