Bottled at 100 proof/50% ABV, Remus Repeal Reserve Series VI This limited-edition bourbon is the sixth-annual offering in the distillery’s Remus Repeal Reserve Bourbon collection.
Created by Master Distiller Ian Stirsman and his team, Series VI comprises five bourbons, aged between 8 and 14 years, from its 175-year-old distillery in Lawrenceburg, IN. Made in a signature high-rye style, the medley changes each year, allowing Stirsman and his team to experiment with various mash bills and aged reserves.
Remus Repeal Reserve Series VI is comprised of 2% of 2008 bourbon (21% Rye), 17% of 2012 bourbon (36% Rye), 27% of 2012 bourbon (21% Rye), 29% of 2014 bourbon (21% Rye), and 25% of 2014 bourbon (36% Rye).
According to the company, Series VI begins with aromas of candied fruit with a hint of nutmeg and saddle leather. The initial taste includes candied fruit and fig jam, followed by oak and barrel char, mint, and a slight caramel, nutmeg, toffee, and honey. The finish offers a balance of candied fruit and leather, with a lingering sweetness and rye spice.
