George Remus Single Barrel Cask Strength Straight Bourbon (2020 Release)
Bourbon — Indiana , USA
Tasted March 31, 2022
Nose - caramel, vanilla, cherry, sweet floral notes, orange, anise, allspice, clove, chocolate, apple, oak, dry herbal notes, moderate ethanol burn. Taste - salted caramel, vanilla, apple, ginger, sweet floral notes, anise, leather, clove, grass, cocoa, cinnamon, moderate alcohol bite, finishing medium short with caramel, vanilla, and baking spice flavors. George Remus is a new brand for me, but MGP isn’t. I’m expecting some decent high-rye bourbon, and I think that’s what we have here. The nose is classic bourbon with some added rye spice. Nothing more, nothing less. The palate follows the same trajectory. Good flavors, leaning bright and youthful, but it’s not harsh or unpleasant. The mouthfeel and finish are average. I don’t have too much to say about this one. It’s better than average bourbon. More time in the barrel would improve it. Review over. Many thanks to @pkingmartin for the generous sample! I’ll be diving into a few Remus Repeal releases next.
