Nose - butterscotch, vanilla, brown sugar, dark chocolate, cinnamon, leather, raspberry, nutmeg, cherry, sweet floral notes, peanut butter, orange, rich oak, moderate ethanol burn. Taste - caramel, vanilla, black cherry, peanut, cocoa, cinnamon, chocolate, clove, apple, black pepper, anise, mint, sour oak, moderate alcohol bite, finishing medium length with caramel, black cherry, and baking spice flavors. Next on my list of George Remus offerings is this third Repeal Reserve release. The nose is very nice with a dense, dark, fruity sweetness. There’s a buttery, nutty chocolate aroma alongside strong baking spices. In short, it’s a solid, rich, fruit-forward bourbon nose. The palate arrives sweet and a bit hot. Many of the same qualities present here. There’s some black pepper, mint, oak, and apple in the mix as well. The mouthfeel is thin and the finish is slightly above average. I wish the palate was as good the nose. This smells so good, but the flavors fall flat and there’s an unfortunate sour note that pervades the experience. Nevertheless, this is good bourbon, but I bet it would have been excellent bourbon at a higher proof and with some older stock in the batch. A big thank you to @Bourbon_Obsessed_Lexington for the generous sample! I’ll wrap up the series tomorrow with the fifth Repeal Reserve release.
