    Question from a Stagg \'virgin\'

    I'm curious as to what Stagg's nearest sibling would be. In many descriptions I've read of Booker's, for example, people have said it's essentially a barrel-proof Jim Beam Black.

    If you add water to Stagg and make it 90 proof, what BT whiskey does it resemble? Blanton's? Rock Hill Farms? ETL? (Is there even an appropriate answer to this!?)

    Thanks guys!

    I've never let my Stagg get watered down enough to find out!

    Absolutely not! I remember some critisizm of drinking high-proof whiskey straight up a while back, but that's how I like it! The most watered down my Stagg gets is with 1 small ice cube, and that's mostly because I like it a little cool.

    When the temp approaches 90 degrees, I tend to pop in a single cube, ala our friend One Cube Only. Other than that, it's straight all the way.

    I am not gonna lie and claim to have my bourbon neat all the time. I think I split 50/50 going neat in a snifter and enough bourbon to comfortably float two medium sized ice cubes in an Old Fashioned glass. Often anymore, it seems to depend almost soley on what the bourbon I choose to drink is, very few get both treatments.

    BTW George T Stagg is one of those few bourbons I do drink either with or without ice.

    It's weird, but Stagg is one bourbon I can't seem to want to put ice in anymore. I used to put in a cube on occassion, but now I just like the mind blowing powers of straight Stagg. But yes, cl is right, in the summer an occassional cube is a nice thing... Especially with the weather we've been having here lately!
