Stagg Jr Batch 15 Bourbon Flash Review

Company on Label: Buffalo Trace

Whiskey Type: Bourbon

Mash Bill Percentages: Buffalo Trace Mash Bill #1 (Low Rye < 10%)

Proof: 131.1°

Age: NAS (~8 years)

Further identification: Batch 15 (Winter 2020)


Buttery, creamy, textured nose. Musty and chocolatey leather. Funky pepper. Fresh linens. Really creamy/sweet.

Instant prevalent mouth coating kissed with a light, sweet strawberry. Caramel carries the proof through. Wow. Explosive flavors. Very sharp vanilla/marshmallow. Cloves & pepper. Pungent strawberry is laced into the leather. Spicy late in the glass. Solid. Kind of reminds me of a strawberry cereal that is sprinkled with a light cinnamon. Finish is shorter than previous batches but this is way more approachable. I have a feeling this batch is going to be a crowd pleaser, but I don't think it is my top (batch 14 is, as of right now).


Rating: 4/5
