George T. Stagg is a very limited-production bourbon created by the Buffalo Trace Distillery, it’s part of the distillery’s ‘Antique Collection’ series and is world-famous for its rather rocket-fuelly 70+% alcohol rating.
It’s become one of the most highly awarded boutique bourbons and its rarity tends to make it rather valuable if you can get your hands on a bottle, each batch is released in September and the 2012 batch was rated at 142.8 proof (that’s 71.4% alcohol).
