  • Excerpt: The palate, too, doesn’t disappoint, with the rich and creamy sweetness balanced with generous oak tannins, lending fine balance. On the finish, look for drying cedar and oak, with clove and pepper.

  • Excerpt: It's not too spicy, with appealing flavors of vanilla, nutmeg, and black tea, and just a touch of cherry on the finish. Cool and soft for its 100-proof, it's quite a nice sipper.

  • Excerpt: All told, it’s a whiskey that I started off finding lots of fun thanks to its bold, burly character — that same burliness that eventually wore me down a bit.

Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    Distilled by MGP from a blend of vintages, the 2018 Medley of Remus Repeal Reserve contains 12% 2007 bourbon, 78% 2008 low rye bourbon and 12% 2008 high rye bourbon. This is the second chapter in Remus' medley of releases, produced for the 2018 calendar year.

  • Nose:

    Sweet and MGP forward profile - honey, praline, tobacco and some pepper. Clove, cinnamon stick, creme brulee. Dead on the money.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel. Proof is there but well placed. Not too hot, not too bland. Plenty of caramel, praline, some toffee and pepper. Oak is there and provides some really welcome structure that keeps the sweetness in check.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, rife with tobacco, honey, faint clove and some waffle cone.

  • Overall:

    Quintessentially MGP, this bottling demonstrates their prowess in both distilling and blending, giving us a look at their best work across the board.

  • Score:

    7
