Ross & Squibb is set to release its Remus Repeal Reserve Series VI Straight Bourbon Whiskey next month.
This will mark their sixth-annual expression in the Remus Repeal Reserve Bourbon collection.
The limited-edition bourbon clocks in at 100 proof and has a suggested retail price of $99.99 per 750mL bottle. A statement from Ross & Squibb notes that this bourbon will be available in limited quantities in September, as the release coincides with National Bourbon Heritage Month.
Master Distiller Ian Stirsman and his team of distillers and blenders are the minds behind the Remus Series VI, which is made up of five bourbons, aged between 8-14 years. They’re all made at what was previously known as the MGP distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.
The blend changes each year, this one is made in a high-rye style. Remus Repeal Reserve Series VI has a mashbill of 2% 2008 Bourbon (21% Rye), 17% 2012 Bourbon (36% Rye), 27% 2012 Bourbon (21% Rye), 29% 2014 Bourbon (21% Rye) and 25% 2014 Bourbon (36% Rye).
The distiller’s notes show that Series VI features aromas of candied fruit with a hint of nutmeg and saddle leather. On the palate are tastes of candied fruit and fig jam, followed by oak and barrel char, mint and slight caramel, nutmeg, toffee and honey.
The finish sees a balance of candied fruit and leather, with lingering sweetness and rye spice.
“The Remus Repeal Reserve series provides our team the opportunity to showcase the incredible array of aged reserves available to work with, as well as our expertise at blending these bourbons to create a special medley each year,” Stirsman said.
