    Which vintage Stagg is this?

    I purchased 6 bottles of George T. Stagg on a Kentucky trip sometime around 2003-2004. They each have a small oval sticker close to the neck indicating that it was the 2002 American Whiskey of the year. Gold marker indicates they are all 68.8%, or 137.6 proof.

    Is it safe to assume this is the 2003 bottling?

    Thanks

    The 2002 American Whiskey of the Year was the 2002 George t Stagg. Only those bottles got the sticker. The proof is also correct for that year.

    My notes have 2002 at 137.6 and 2003 at 142.7 proof. I think this is correct. tim

    But if you would rather have a 2003 or other year of Stagg, I'll gladly trade you for the 2002.

    Re: Which vintage Stagg is this?

    Thank you for the replies and PM's. I should have searched for Stagg with the proof #'s instead of just Stagg, vintage, etc.

    I'm sorry but they're not available for trade or sale. I went through considerable effort to find them as I drove through Kentucky in 2003 and I was aware of their precious standing at that time.

    I guess the cool & dry storage does do the trick since the levels are not down at all for the unopened bottles.

    Thanks again

    I went through Kentucky that year and bought them at a Liquor Barn or one of those other major retailers. Why is that unbelievable?

    What's unbelievable is you have been sitting on six unopened GTS for 5-6 years. I've collected at least a couple of each release since the Spring '05 and still have some unopened of each but at least I drank one. Are you saying you bought those and have not even tried it?

    Okay folks. Let's watch the tone here. Yemen mentioned in another thread that he got away from whiskey for awhile and recently returned to the fold. Yemen, crack one of those babies open, if you haven't already, and let us know what you think of the 2002 "American Whiskey of the Year."
