    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!

    Somewhere in this forum the appropriate mashbill has been identified , I don't remember which it is. There isn't anything like Stagg, period. Booker's is on the same page however.

    Why bother discovering this? Stagg is about $42/bottle in WV. Blantons is about $45. Spend your money on the original. Go here to find out how.

    I did a quick search Bobby, and it seems that Stagg is from the BT Rye Mash Bourbon #1 mashbill, as confirmed by Chuck and Craig.

    Also as they would say in Harry Potter, "He Who Shall Not Be Named", found a striking resemblance between Proprietor's Reserve and Stagg if it were filtered and cut down to 90 proof. That post can be found here.

    You're assuming it's available in all areas. Thanks for the offer of getting SB.com folks a bottle, but not all of us can attend the Bourbon Festival

    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.

    In my opinion it will resemble all of them, because I feel they all have this resounding "earthiness" to them that's hard to describe. At least their ryed bourbons do. That's not to say that Stagg won't be better, but it will still taste like BT bourbon . YMMV
