Remus Repeal Reserve Series IV Straight Bourbon
George Remus // Indiana , USA
Remus Repeal Reserve Series IV Straight Bourbon is the fourth straight blended bourbon released by the brand to commemorate the repeal of Prohibition. Each year the brand changes the exact recipe. The straight bourbons used here were two high-rye mash bills distilled in 2008 at MGP in Indiana. The first high-rye bourbon composed 77% of the blend and its mash bill had 21% rye. The second high-rye bourbon was 23% of the blend with a mash bill including 36% rye. This is a limited annual release set to launch in September 2020 in limited quantities and full distribution expected by December 5th to coincide with the repeal of Prohibition.

"The high-rye mash bill of the bourbons used in the 2020 medley definitely come through. It's a bright whiskey with notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and maple, and a refreshing finish with hints of orange peel. Sip it neat, or perhaps try it in a Manhattan."
