Remus Repeal Reserve Batch V - 2021 Medley Bourbon Flash Review



On December 5th, 1933 Prohibition was repealed! The popular vote for the repeal of Prohibition was 74% in favor and 26% in opposition. No better time to get into this Remus Repeal Reserve than on the anniversary of such a historic date. From the bottle:

Prohibition was repealed in the United States with the passage of the 21st Amendment to the United States Constitution. To commemorate this milestone, we created Remus Repeal Reserve. This 2021 limited edition bourbon leads with dried fruit, rich caramel, maple syrup, roasted nuts and leather. The beginning includes rich toffee and vanilla, followed by chocolate, glazed nuts, and oak. The finish offers candied fruit, caramel, baking spice and a lingering oaky rye spice. In short, Remus Repeal Reserve is the best we make. Or as George Remus himself might have said, 'some damn fine giggle water'. Enjoy!

The nosing notes from the bottle are spot on; I'm getting syrupy cherry, pecans, caramel and rosehip. On my first sip I taste a very sweet blend of higher rye content bourbon - there's some baking spice, thick vanilla, plum and fig. After my first sip the nose definitely takes on more of that sweet vanilla hinting towards marshmallow goodness. There's a slightly meaty characteristic that feels tied into the chocolate note. Certainly more oak forward on the nose now. Returning for another sip there are lovely citrus notes that come off sweet and spicy at the same time; culminating in a flavor that reminds me of an English walnut pie.


 

Rating: 5/5


This is a damn good bourbon blend crafted from well-aged stocks.
