Raided Score: 93 Publication: Whisky Advocate Excerpt: The finish has peppery oak, chocolate-covered coffee bean, and nuts, with quickly fading dark fruit. Read Full Review Raided Score: 87 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. Read Full Review Raided Score: 96 Publication: The Whiskey Wash 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. Read Full Review Raided Score: 96 Publication: Drinkhacker 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.

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.
Buttery and spice on the nose. Creamy honey, light peanut character, some tobacco and vanilla bean.
Medium palate. A bit dry and oak forward, lots of pepper and spice. Clove, spicy rye notes, some honey.
Long finish, though it's less dessert forward than previous iterations, focusing more on dry oak, spicy clove and pepper.
Still very well blended, but this expression will hit home for those that like oakier bourbons.
