George T. Stagg - 2018

Tasted April 2019 ~ 124.9 proof

Rich vanilla and caramel lead the way followed by jam (jelly?) notes, perhaps a bit of raisin or dried cherry.


Creamy, butterscotch – like a melting Werther’s candy. It fades away on the mouth like a piece of shortbread that dissolves slowly leaving residual sweetness. The finish is a soft spice with hints of cedar. An amazing sip. 

Go Stagg!

Consistently this one will hold the bar. I wish I had the tasting notes of the 2016 and 2017. I was fortunate enough to try those, as well. Solid product - always!

Dominant Flavors:

Butterscotch and shortbread.
