The 2018 release of the George T Stagg straight bourbon whiskey that forms part of the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection.

A hugely sought after whiskey with very limited Australian allocation, the 2018 release is made up of barrels aged for more than 15 years and 4 months and bottled at 124.9 proof – 62.45%.

Buffalo Trace tasting notes:

“Lush toffee sweetness and dark chocolate with hints of vanilla, fudge, nougat and molasses. Underlying notes of dates, tobacco, dark berries, spearmint and a hint of coffee round out the palate.”
