Taste
George T. Stagg 2019 is part of an exclusive series known as the "Antique Collection" which consists of rare bourbons. This unique spirit is named after Master Distiller George T. Stagg and is produced at the award-winning Buffalo Trace Distillery. It is produced from Mash Bill #1, like other great blends such as Eagle Rare, E.H. Taylor, and Elmer T. Lee. It is a sour mash of corn, rye, and malted barley, which has a lower content of rye, than mash bill #2. This bourbon is smooth and silky with prominent notes of rich caramel, blended with black cherries. The palate is bright with caramelized cherries, vanilla, and caramel, inviting you quickly for another sip. 

History
George T. Stagg 2019 is a unique spirit, undoubtedly one of the most iconic and exclusive bottles in the Stagg collection. It is bottled at a high alcohol volume of 116.9 proof and is aged no less than 15 years, straight out of the barrel, uncut, and unfiltered. It is part of Buffalo Trace Distillery's “Antique Collection” series, which features rare bourbons, which are released annually, but still hard to obtain. It is named George T. Stagg in honor of the founder, and gifted salesman "George T. Stagg" who purchased his first distillery in 1878 known as Old Fashioned Copper Distillery, and Carlisle Distillery, which was next to each other on the Kentucky River. In 1886, he made some improvements to the facility and installed steam heating in the storage warehouses, and it became the first climate-controlled warehouse for aging whiskey. By this time Stagg's, and E.H. Taylor's partnership had deteriorated significantly, as Stagg knew the importance of E. H. Taylor's reputation for quality and kept using his name inclusively naming the distillery, Old Taylor Distillery for some time. After several lawsuits, the distillery finally adopted the name George T. Stagg & Co. in 1890. and kept the name for several years, even after his death. During this time, this distillery won several awards including Distillery of the year. Around this time a young boy started working at the distillery as an office boy his name was Albert Blanton, and who would later work in all departments in the distillery, and would commence the magnificent association between Blanton and the George T. Stagg Distillery. In 1992 the Sazerac Company purchased the distillery and renamed it Buffalo Trace Distillery, one of the oldest functioning distilleries in this nation.
