"Remus Repeal Reserve Series II is a line drive up the middle, hitting classic bourbon notes with a richness and depth that's easy to enjoy. It's not too spicy, with appealing flavors of vanilla, nutmeg, and black tea, and just a touch of cherry on the finish. Cool and soft for its 100-proof, it's quite a nice sipper."
