Ross & Squibb reveals Remus Repeal Bourbon
Luxco-owned Ross & Squibb Distillery will launch its Remus Repeal Reserve Series VI Bourbon this September.
Ross & Squibb’s latest Bourbon was created by master distiller Ian Stirsman and his team of master distillers and master blenders.
Series VI comprises a blend of five Bourbons, aged between eight and 14 years.
“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,” said Stirsman.
“Series VI is the latest in this award-winning collection that is certain to be yet another excellent example of what our Remus Repeal collection represents: what great Bourbon can be.”
The bottling is made up of the following components: 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).
On the nose, aromas of rich candied fruit meet hints of nutmeg and saddle leather.
The palate presents the taste of candied fruit and fig jam, followed by oak and barrel char, mint and slight caramel, nutmeg, toffee and honey.
The finish offers a balance of sweet candied fruit and leather, with lingering sweetness and rye spice.
The limited edition Bourbon is the sixth annual offering from the Remus Repeal collection.
Bottled at 50% ABV, the Series VI whiskey retails for US$99.99 per 750ml. It will be released in September to coincide with National Bourbon Heritage Month.
