Stagg Jr Release Dates and Proofs


Stagg Jr Release Dates and Proofs

Find your Stagg release date & proof

Prior to the winter 2022 release of Stagg (no longer Stagg Jr after Batch 18, at which point Stagg Jr was considered to be an adult and the “Jr” designation was dropped from the label) it was difficult to know which Stagg Jr or Stagg you had, and the only way to figure it out was to search for the release date based on the proof of the batch. That ended with Batch 19 which was released in the winter of 2022 and it carried on the label the designation of Stagg 22B, indicating that it was the second release (batch B) of 2022. To find the Stagg Jr release dates and proofs of older Staggs, use our handy Stagg Jr batches list below.

Stagg Jr, and now simply Stagg, is released twice a year, most often in the Spring and Fall, but sometimes Spring and Winter. Each one is an uncut-unfiltered Small Batch Barrel Proof allocated release aged roughly 8 to 9 years. They have the reputation of being high proof and as expected from a barrel proof juice, the majority of them have a different proof rating (Stagg 22B [Batch 19] has the same proof as Batch 7).

For high-proofed whiskeys and bourbons like the Stagg Jr batches, some people suggest cracking it open, covering it with cheesecloth (to keep fruit flies out), and letting it breathe for 24 hours before re-corking it. Do a before and after taste test yourself to see if this process improves your sipping experience.

@robb. That’s the laser code which is the main identifier of the batch.
