George T Stagg is a rye formula bourbon from the Sazerac Antiquities Collection. It is released once per year in the fall. The whiskey is 15 years old and released at barrel proof

Nose: oak, maple sugar, vanilla, spice

Taste: Extreme intense spice and wood flavours give the taste buds an incredible workout. This is extremely delicious and intense. Vanilla and caramel are more present in the mouth than in the nose. The sweet and dry balance is excellent. The most astonishing thing is that at 143 proof this is extremely smooth and the alcohol is barely perceptible tasted neat

Finish: all of the flavours last long and hold up well

Balance: The balance of the elements within George T Stagg is superb. In the world of rye formula bourbons there is nothing else like this, though there are some, like the best Willetts, that are not too very far away. If you have never tasted this whiskey you really owe it to yourself to do so, if for no other reason than to see where the bar has been set

@Victor...would really enjoy a review of the GTS 2011 and a comparison of it with the 2010. Your reviews are always enjoyable and educational!
