    George T. Stagg 142,8 proof Barrel Proof Limited Edition 2012

    Hi,

    I really would like to buy this bottle, but never had any Stagg, and never had anything in this price range (it is 150 per bottle).
    Is it worthy the price, and would you recommend it?

    Thanks in advance
    Sven

    That's a reasonable question but my answer has to be, it depends. Obviously we can get Stagg for comparatively less here than you can in Germany but it is still one of the higher priced brands domestically. So it really depends on whether you want to pay the premium for the Stagg experience. You can pay an equal amount for an undistinguished NPP Bourbon but Stagg is the real deal, a completely unique whisky in top form.

    What does bourbon generally cost in Germany vs. US? How much is a Maker's Mark for example?

    Hi all,

    thanks, squire. So I have to buy it! The tasting reviews are all rave. What is the bottle in the U.S?

    Bourbon in Germany, it depends. MM is 20€, OGD 16€, but Dickel is 50€ - totally depends.

    Last time I checked local retail was about $80.00 US.

    Suggested retail price is around 80 but just finding it is nearly impossible. I do not think $150 is unreasonable given the distance, low supply and high demand.

    Smart move. Stagg is one of my favorites and while the 2012 did not get the most glowing reviews on here compared to years past, I personally thought it was still fantastic.

    Agreed. All things considered, probably a good price.
