Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Distillery Bottling 750ml / 58.45% / 116.9 Proof

A bottle of the 2019 release of George T. Stagg, the Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey in Buffalo Trace's prestige Antique Collection annual releases and for many bourbon fans the best whiskey in the distillery's portfolio.

This 2019 edition of George T. Stagg is from the 2004 vintage and was bottled as a 15-year-old at its hefty but still remarkably palatable cask strength of 58.45% / 116.9 US Proof. Incredibly, as of early 2024 this is the lowest strength that George T. Stagg has ever been released at, and the first and only time it has ever dipped under 60%. For the record, the highest strength Stagg so far was the 2007 edition, released at a mind-boggling 72.4%.

This 2019 edition of George T. Stagg scooped a whopping 97 points at the Ultimate Spirits Competition 2020, one of countless awards collected by the various annual releases of this extraordinary whiskey since its launch in 2002.
