Buffalo Trace Antique Collection

Kentucky Whiskey.

George T Stagg Bourbon

Sazerac Rye Whiskey

Eagle Rare "Rye Recipe" Bourbon

George T. Stagg

15 Year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey


An extremely hearty whiskey. Stagg comes straight out of the barrel, uncut and unfiltered. Powerful and intense; add a few drops of mineral water, sit back and ponder the wonders of the universe.

Sazerac Rye 18-Year-Old

90 proof, Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey


Malt Advocate rating: 95


Colour: - Amber chestnut


Nose: - Huge, spicy aroma. Very mature, with notes of oak, leather, and molasses.


Taste: - Enormous in every respect, from its thick, chewy texture to its unbelievably spicy and very powerful flavours.


Finish: - The long, warm finish is preceded by notes of mint, eucalyptus, cinnamon, vanilla, molasses, oak, leather, and lingering pepper.


"This is an amazing, truly unique whiskey. There is no rye whiskey on the market that is as old or perfectly balanced as this one. For all who can't get enough flavors and intensity in your whiskey, your search has ended."

Eagle Rare 17-Year-Old

90 Proof, "Rye Recipe"

Kentucky Straight Bourbon



Wine Enthusiast rating: 96


Tasting Notes


Colour and Nose:- This deep, burnished-gold whiskey has a somewhat fragrant nose, and the aromas develop an almost wine-like character, with a hint of almonds lurking in the backdrop.


Taste:- The body is big and silky, and the palate is far spicier than the nose leads you to believe, but there are also violet notes here, along with a touch of caramel and a hint of old leather.


Finish:- The finish is very leathery, and very long.


Comments:-This whiskey earned a great rating, but lovers of previous bottlings of Eagle Rare should know that this seems to bear a completely different style---it’s far greater than either the 10-or 15-year old.
