After four years of aging, water was added to reduce this bourbon to 100 proof and allowed to mature for another eight years. The nose is sweet and floral, with notes of oak, vanilla, and leather. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Taste is a pleasing balance of butterscotch, honey, and wood with a crisp finish.
George T. Stagg built the most dominant American distillery of the 19th century, during a time known as the Gilded Age of Bourbon. Uncut and unfiltered, this robust bourbon whiskey ages for nearly a decade and boasts the bold character that is reminiscent of the man himself. TASTING NOTES: Rich, sweet, chocolate and brown sugar flavors mingle in perfect balance with the bold rye spiciness. The boundless finish lingers with hints of cherries, cloves and smokiness.
