Ross & Squibb
Produced for the 2021 medley of Remus' Repeal Reserve releases, the fifth entry in the portfolio combines a collection of 2005, 2006 and 2008 bourbon.
Big bold and rich, loaded with brown sugar, maple, sweet toffee and an unassuming but welcome cherry pie note.
Rich on the palate, plenty of oak and spice, a surprising amount of clove, ginger, blackberries, toffee and cherry. Viscous and satisfying, 50% is a great proof point for this release, and there's no shortage of decadent dessert flavor here.
Long finish. Waning between spicy and fruity, sweet and dry with oak tannins. Opulent, interesting, long lived.
Really delicious hitter landing from Remus on this release. My only regret? No backup on the shelf to speak of.
