Truly excellent, stellar bourbon. The best Stagg to date, in my opinion (of those I've tasted). If you're not familiar with the yearly Stagg releases, it's a powerhouse freight-train of a bourbon from Buffalo Trace, part of their "Antique Collection." I've always found it impossible to drink at bottle proof (I don't think the distillers really intend it to be drank that way), but with a couple ice cubes (yes, ice) Stagg turns into pure magic. This year's release is quite sweet -- sweeter than last year -- with a greater toffee/candy character that I find extremely delightful. My notes read, "all about sweet, deep, rich toffee and brown sugar." Checking BT's official tasting notes, they say: "toffee, molasses, vanilla, and coffee." Yep, though the coffee is arguably fleeting. Molasses is the word of the day here. Buy, buy, buy, buy, buy. Massively recommended for all those who like their bourbon rich, strong, and sweet.
