This is the 2012 release of George T. Stagg which is NAS and bottled at 71.4% ABV.
Nose: Huge vanilla bomb with lofty, rich cinnamon, dark chocolate, and charred oak.
Palate: Big tobacco notes with french vanilla and sweet oak.
Finish: Dry and oaky with smoke and ash with cinnamon.
Rating: 93/100 – The best GTS I’ve had so far.
Value for the money: These are going for $400+ which I can’t justify, but if you’re looking for a GTS and prepared to spend secondary values, it’s one of my favorites.
