This was definitely the highlight of my day Sunday. Thanks to @thewalkingdad for bringing over his bottle of GTS that he scored (and waited in line several hours for).
Fall 2018 release of George T Stagg Sample: Neat in Glencairn Bottle: Opened less than a month, 95% full.
Nose: Rich and deep. Chocolate cake, brown sugar, nutmeg, vanilla and oak. The strength of flavour is mind-blowing, yet it doesn't light your nose hair on fire.
Palate: A burst of dark cherry and vanilla! Check that, explosion of cherry and vanilla! Followed by almond butter, sweet cornbread, and deep, dark caramel and oak. That's all I know to say is that this is a "deep" whiskey. I also used this to describe Jack Daniels barrel Proof. Dark, rich and deep.
Finish: Oak, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and fresh baked wheat bread.
Overall: This is the pinnacle of bourbon.
