Old Forester Birthday Bourbon Ltd Bottling 2013

America’s First Bottled Bourbon Honors Founder with Commemorative Small Batch Bourbon

For more than 140 years, Old Forester has been crafted using the time-honored methods established by George Garvin Brown, the founder of Louisville-based Brown-Forman and Old Forester, America’s First Bottled Bourbon. To commemorate Mr. Brown’s September 2nd birthday, Old Forester annually releases an expression of its highly-acclaimed bourbon and this year marks the 12th limited edition release.

 Selected from a single day of production and handcrafted by Master Distiller Chris Morris, this limited edition small batch bourbon is vintage-dated – offering a one-of-a-kind character and flavor profile that will never be replicated. Its unique decanter style glass bottle is a throwback to the late 1800’s when Old Forester was first produced. Each bottle features the founder’s signature and the dates on which the bourbon was barreled and bottled.

 “This year’s batch was selected for its robust presentation of flavors which showcase vanilla bean caramelized oak paired with deep layers of warming spices and a delicate nut character,” said Morris. “A rich aroma and a long, warm finish make this yet another must-have release.”

Since its introduction in 2002, Old Forester Birthday Bourbon has received unprecedented acclaim and has collected honors from USA Today, Malt Advocate, Whisky Magazine, Spirit Journal, Ultimate Spirits Challenge, Wine Enthusiast, and Santé. A favorite among critics, Old Forester Birthday Bourbons have taken home gold from numerous tasting competitions including “BEST BOURBON, Double Gold Medal” in the 2012 San Francisco World Spirits Competition as well as “Gold” medals in the 2005, 2006 & 2007 competitions. The 2012 expression received a 95 rating and was given the “Ultimate Recommendation” in the 2013 Ultimate Spirits Challenge. The 2007 expression was also named American Whiskey of the Year at Malt Advocate WhiskyFest New York.

The Old Forester 12 Year Birthday Bourbon KSBW is a limited edition release that will not last long. Lukas Liquor Superstore will not be taking phone, email or fax reservations for this whiskey and it will be an in store, no limit purchase item.

Stagg Jr KSBW Limited Release

SOLD OUT

New to Lukas Liquor Superstore
Stagg Jr Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Bourbon Barrel Proof & Unfiltered

67.20% ABV (134.4 Proof)

Stagg Jr

Uncut, Unfiltered Bourbon is a younger version of the legendary George T. Stagg Bourbon. At long last, Buffalo Trace Distillery releases Stagg Jr. Bourbon, an uncut and unfiltered bourbon whiskey with a renowned family name.

The first batch of Stagg Jr. is comprised of barrels aged for eight and nine years. The proof weighs in at a whopping 134.4 proof (67.2% ABV). Future releases will undoubtedly be different proofs, as each batch is unique and no water is added. Just like George T. Stagg Bourbon, this new whiskey is not filtered and offers all the rich and complex flavors of bourbon right from the barrel. Bottles of Stagg Jr. will be limited, but several batches each year are planned. This new Stagg Jr. offering will not affect the stock of barrels already set aside for future George T. Stagg releases.

Stagg Jr back
Master Distiller, Harlen Wheatley, describes that taste as, “rich, sweet, chocolate and brown sugar flavors mingled in perfect balance with a bold, rye spiciness. The boundless finish lingers with hints of cherries, cloves and smokiness.” “We’ve been aging these barrels for years in anticipation of this Stagg Jr. offering,” said Kris Comstock, bourbon marketing director. “George T. Stagg has won countless awards, but we’re delighted to introduce Stagg Jr., which should be a bit more accessible.”

George T. Stagg is one of the legendary craftsmen of Buffalo Trace Distillery, and is responsible for building the most dominant American distillery of the 19th century on the banks of the Kentucky River, now known as Buffalo Trace Distillery. In 2002, Buffalo Trace introduced George T. Stagg Bourbon Whiskey, an uncut, unfiltered bourbon that has won numerous awards including World’s Best North American Whiskey, Number One Spirit in the World, and World Whiskey of the Year. Now the Distillery is offering a line extension through Stagg Jr. that still maintains the integrity of the brand, a big, bold whiskey bottled at barrel proof.

The allocation of the new Stagg Jr. is extremely limited and will not last long. While Lukas wishes there was enough product to fulfill the current demand, we simply cannot do so. With that said here are the current Stagg Jr. release rules:
1. NO phone call or email reservation(s)… NO exceptions.
2. First come, first serve… NO exceptions.
3. Limit of 1 bottle per person, per day until product is completely gone… NO Exceptions.
