Review from bourbonv (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 104)
Purchased at:Gift from Friend
Info on this bottle:This is a 2003 version of the Stagg
Proof Of this Bottle:142.7
Nose:Alcohol - this bourbon needs to beath a little before tasting. Oak and old leather. Caramel toffee and dark fruit - plums. Even after breathing the bourbon it keeps a strong alcohol aroma. Not a bourbon for the meek.
Taste:Strong alcohol burn with a dry tannic lead in. After a second you get a few of those nice caramel and fruit flavors and even a little of fine tobacco, but the alcohol makes it hard to find them. This bourbon definitely improves with a little water to tame it allowing additional flavor to through.
Finish:The finish is the best part of this bourbon straight. It has many wonderful hints of flavors that are there but hidden by the strong proof. The finish last a long time with some nice fruity caramel tones balanced by a dry oak taste.
Overall:This is the my least favorite of the Staggs so far. I was much more impressed with the lower proof version that allowed the flaqvors to come through without the alcohol killing the taste buds first.
