    What's the current availability of George T. Stagg?

    Sorry fellas, I'm a new guy and this is already my third new topic, but I just had to ask.

    Today I saw a bottle of George T. Stagg, but I did not buy. Being the novice Bourbon enthusiast that I am (who loves history and research) I decided to check out this board to find more info on this Bourbon. While the search engine does not allow you to be too specific (i.e., search Topic only, etc.) I was able to find one thread where Stagg was mentioned and it sounded as if it's rare to find. Is this so?

    And, how long has George T. Stagg been aged? And, is it better to get a certain year (i.e., '05 better than '06, etc.) and where is the year represented on the bottle?

    Thanks for all the help. In the meantime, I will continue my research online to find out as much info as possible.

    Regards,

    Mark Brown

    You might find better luck searching for GTS. If you can, pick it up. Depending on where you are at it ranges from not too hard to impossible to find. You can tell the release by the proof on the bottle. Check this thread.

    Perfect. Thanks for all your help. Now, I'm going to have to run over to the liquor store and see what year it is.

    I wouldn't leave without it. It definitely deserves to be added to your growing collection, regarless of release.

    Going, going gone. I spend way too much money on Bourbon and I can't stop. Stagg is part of the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection that is released each fall. The GTS is difficult to find. I was able to find out that in the whole state of VA, 10 bottles were left. I picked up 4 bottles today at a nearby ABC store. The rest are about 4 hours away in Southern VA. Fortunately for me, the shelf label read $49.95 while the register rang up $60.95 . I argued with the salesman over the price telling him that "his advertised price is only $49.95". He reduced the cost and gave them to me for that price....I was very happy.

    You are preaching to the choir. Good thing is there are quite a few of great Bourbons for less than $25. I just woouldn't want you to miss an opportunity to get a hold of the GTS.
