Nose - butterscotch, vanilla, walnut, black cherry, cinnamon butter, tobacco, earthy mint, chocolate, cranberry, grass, orange zest, moderate ethanol burn. Taste - butterscotch, cherry, vanilla, peanut butter, orange, mint, tangerine, apple, pineapple, grass, leather, chocolate, sweet floral notes, rich oak, moderate alcohol bite, finishing medium long with butterscotch, citrus, and tropical fruit flavors. Last up in my Remus tour is this fifth Repeal Reserve expression. I was unfortunately a bit underwhelmed by the third release, so let’s see how this one fares. The nose is really nice. It’s even more citrus and red fruit-forward than the third release’s. It’s sweet grassy with nutty, minty chocolate aromas. The palate is punchy and rich. Bright red fruits and deep citrus qualities accompany chocolate and tropical fruit flavors. The mouthfeel is medium and the finish lingers pleasantly. This is great bourbon. It easily bests the third release for me. This has a strong citrusy presence, but it doesn’t veer thin and sour like the last one did. I’m not sure I’ve ever encountered a profile like this on another bourbon. It’s really well done, if not slightly bright and fresh for my liking. Many thanks to both @soonershrink and @Bourbon_Obsessed_Lexington for providing generous samples. I have enough for one more enjoyable experience.
