Can’t remember if I was actually drinking the 2019 Stagg that night, but it is (for Stagg) a slightly disappointing batch. It’s still a really good bourbon, but they’ve set the bar so high for that particular offering, that occasionally, you’re going to get something that isn’t up to what you really expect.

Yep. That extra proof sometimes brings a certain flavor that is missing from a lower proof, even when you get that high of a number. As soon as I tasted it, I figured it to be in the 120 range, not the 140 range. Still very tasty, and reasonable at $25/pour.
