First introduced in 2013, this is the regular production version of the very limited George T. Stagg of the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection.
This is Barrel Proof Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Aged for nearly a Decade, (just shy of Eagle Rare) and bottled without water, Uncut and Unfiltered.
Buffalo Trace Mash Bill No.1
85% Corn, 10% Rye, 5% Malted Barley
NAS; Minimum 4, Claimed 8-9 Years
No.4 Charred New American Oak
On the nose the aromas are powerfully intense! Sweet, dark brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, cherry lozenges, cola nut, oak wood, barrel char, oiled leather, coffee, and a hint of bright citrus.
To the palate it is punishing with the intensity of flavour and alcohol! Sweet, dark caramel hits first with a zing of spice and cinnamon leading to an incredibly warming experience with cherry syrup, vanilla, brown sugar, chocolate and a hint of lemon zest. It has a rich syrupy mouthfeel.
The finish leaves the tongue numb! Smoke, cloves, rye spice, tobacco and a long, lingering sweet oak flavour reside.
With a splash of water, the nose is much more approachable. To the palate it is still aggressive and more rye spiciness appears, along with wood bitterness. Cherry candy and lemon zest burst towards the finish.
Bourbon Mark: 97
This stuff is phenomenal! The first time I tried it, I immediately went back for more, and I’m pretty sure it peeled all the skin off the inside of my mouth!
The power and intensity isn’t all that’s going on here, there’s also a lot of complexity and rich, delicious flavours! If I had to sum it up, I’d say it resembles Cherry Cola.
I definitely recommend water to protect your senses and also to open this whisky up to reveal all it has to offer.

Four Roses Small Batch🥃 Bourbon který prostě musíte ochutnat!
🌹🌹🌹🌹Four Roses Small Batch je unikátní, ručně vyráběný bourbon. Výraz „small batch“ označuje bourbon vyrobený smícháním obsahu malého počtu vybraných sudů. Master Distiller vybírá čtyři originální bourbony na vrcholu zralosti a v malé várce vytváří dokonale vyvážený bourbon, který konzumenty odmění lahodnou symfonií bohatě kořenitých chutí se sladkým ovocným aroma a nádechem sladkého dubu a karamelu. Obsah alkoholu 45 %.
Tonight was my first time trying out Michter’s Toasted Barrel Finish. I’m a fan!
Michter’s Toasted Barrel Finish Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. 91.4 Proof. 45.7% Alc/Vol
Thanks @bourbonthusiasta for the pour!
Made with wheat as the secondary grain instead of the traditional rye, Larceny is a smoother tasting bourbon.
Larceny Kentucky Straight Bourbon has its origins in the history of John E. Fitzgerald and the Old Fitzgerald brand.
Master Distillers select a limited number of barrels from specific floor locations in the rickhouse for Larceny’s six-year old taste profile.
