Remus Bourbon expands Reserve range
Luxco-owned Ross & Squibb Distillery will launch the seventh annual release in its Remus Repeal Reserve Bourbon collection next month.
The seventh bottling in Remus Bourbon’s Repeal Reserve Series uses barrels of whiskey aged between nine and 16 years from its distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.
The liquid is composed of: 6% 2007 Bourbon (21% rye), 26% 2013 Bourbon (21% rye), 26% 2013 Bourbon (36% rye), 21% 2014 Bourbon (21% rye) and 21% 2014 Bourbon (36% rye).
Series VII is said to offer an aroma of caramelised pecans, candied cherry and maple syrup.
The palate carries flavours of caramel, maple and candied raisin, leading to a candied cherry, barrel char and rich cinnamon body.
The finish delivers intense cinnamon and peppermint spice, with lingering notes of vanilla, caramel and oak.
Each Remus Repeal Reserve expression is made with a new selection of Bourbons, while maintaining the distillery’s signature high-rye style.
“We believe we have some of the best whiskey in the world ageing here at the Ross & Squibb Distillery,” said master distiller Ian Stirsman.
“The Remus Repeal Reserve series allows our team the opportunity to showcase these great spirits, as well as showcase our expertise at blending our best barrels to create a special medley each year.
“As the latest in this award-winning collection, Series VII is certain to be a highly sought-after and much-enjoyed member of the Remus Repeal Reserve family.”
Bottled at 50% ABV, Series VII retails for RRP £149 (US$188) per 750ml bottle.
It will be available in limited quantities from September to mark National Bourbon Heritage Month.
In July 2023, Ross & Squibb extended its Remus range with the addition of Highest Rye Bourbon.
Earlier this month, Luxco added a bottled-in-bond expression to its Rossville rye whiskey series.
