2009 Stagg

Stagg has arrived!

I hardly ever open stuff the day I get it, but Stagg is an exception. So chewy and chocolaty. A must buy in my opinion (and I know that this being my first post, my opinion counts for nothing, but still...)!

Congrats. Another offering in the 140 range.

I'm looking forward to getting my case.

Whats that bottle on the right?

And now for something completely different. Mixed drink suggestion: 50:50 mix of Stagg and Laphroaig.

2009 compared to 2008. Caveat: I'm no expert.

IMHO

Assessed neat: room temp fresh pour, room temp slightly aired, and hand warmed.
Color & nose identical. Taste was virtually identical, as if from two barrels aged side-by-side, and any difference was probably my imagination.

Well I just put my case of 09 away next to the 08 and I'm going to have to commit the proofs to memory as they are both 141.x

I just located the last bottle of 2008 some local chain with 3 stores had at their most remote store, and they are waiting on 2009 to arrive so I should have that one nailed down as well.

Also in non-bourbon news located Sazerac 18 year from another store that's about an hour drive away.

Found this Stagg and the Eagle Rare 17 @ my Total Wine & Spirits and had to buy both. Might even go back for some more Stagg as they had about 5 bottles and this is one helluva bourbon. Im also using it to peel paint! :)

Buying more Stagg is Always a good idea. But leave at least one for someone else if you can :)

Stagg and Laphroaig are both excellent, but the thought of them mixed doesn't sound particularly appealing.

I've heard a lot of folks saying that the 2009 and 2008 are identical tasting, but to me I thought the '09 was a little fuller and richer -- some bolder (if that's possible!) flavors up front and a rounder finish. My 2008's been open for quite a few months, though and the 2009 was freshly opened. If you can improve on perfection, I think this year's Stagg has done it.

I think the opposite of the WLarueW which I thought was slightly better last year -- this year's is a little rough on the finish and drier on the palate, I thought.

Just released in PA. Should be at my local store tomorrow and 55 bucks ain't a bad price.
