  • Publication: Distiller
  • Excerpt: It's a bright whiskey with notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and maple, and a refreshing finish with hints of orange peel. Sip it neat, or perhaps try it in a Manhattan.

  • Excerpt: This is not a disappointment. You will enjoy it. I did. I won’t bring it out for just anyone. At $85 a bottle, this is not a terrible deal at all. If there’s a Kelley Blue Book for bourbon, this would hold its value.

  • Excerpt: The finish is generous, perhaps longer than I’ve experienced on a Repeal Reserve to date, with a nice harmony of fruit marmalade, toasted oak, and crème caramel. Clearly getting better every year.

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:

    Produced for the 2020 crop of Remus' annual Repeal Reserve release, this bottling combines low rye bourbon from 2008 and high rye from 2008 to create a 12yr blend from MGP.

  • Nose:

    Buttery and spice on the nose. Creamy honey, light peanut character, some tobacco and vanilla bean.

  • Taste:

    Medium palate. A bit dry and oak forward, lots of pepper and spice. Clove, spicy rye notes, some honey.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, though it's less dessert forward than previous iterations, focusing more on dry oak, spicy clove and pepper.

  • Overall:

    Still very well blended, but this expression will hit home for those that like oakier bourbons.

  • Score:

    6
