Taste
Stagg Jr Bourbon is an impressive bourbon that comes in different proofs by batch. This profound bourbon is named to commemorate 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 bill of corn, rye, and malted barley, which has a lower content of rye, than mash bill #2. This bourbon is rich and fragrant with bright bursts of sweet, chocolate, and brown sugar aromas that mingle in perfect harmony with the bold rye spiciness. The finish lingers with hints of cherries, cloves, and smokiness.

History
Stagg Jr Bourbon is a powerful and bold spirit, undoubtedly one of the most affordable bourbons in the Stagg collection. It is bottled at different proofs and is aged no less than 7-9 years, straight out of the barrel, uncut, and unfiltered. It is crafted at the Buffalo Trace Distillery and is named after 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, and is still one of the oldest functioning distilleries in this nation.
