"With a current rise in bottled-in-bond expressions, this bourbon from Remus certainly stands up as a champion for the cause. The Remus Volstead Reserve opens up with a lively combination of cornbread, green herbs, and black peppercorn on the nose. On the palate, it delivers a bright and crackling structure accented with bread crust and caramel flavors."
