New varietal offers rare medley of five bourbons ranging from 2005 to 2008
ST. LOUIS (Sept. 9, 2021) – Luxco’s Remus Repeal Reserve Series V Straight Bourbon Whiskey is now available at retailers. Series V is the fifth edition of the award-winning Remus Repeal Reserve Bourbon collection. It showcases a medley of five bourbons ranging from 2005 to 2008, offering a rare taste of the finest cask bourbon selections available from one of the oldest distilleries in the country. A limited annual release, this bourbon is produced to commemorate the repeal of Prohibition in 1933.
Remus Repeal Reserve is an annual series from George Remus® Bourbon, crafted by the expert distillers and blenders at MGP’s 174-year-old distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. Made in the distillery’s signature high-rye style, the medley changes each year, allowing the team to experiment with their various mash bills. Remus Repeal Reserve Series V is comprised of 9% 2005 Bourbon (21% Rye), 5% 2006 Bourbon (36% Rye), 19% 2006 Bourbon (21% Rye), 13% 2008 Bourbon (21% Rye) and 54% 2008 Bourbon (36% Rye).
Series V leads with dried fruit, rich caramel, maple syrup, roasted nuts and leather. The beginning includes rich toffee and vanilla, followed by chocolate, glazed nuts and oak. The finish offers candied fruit, caramel, baking spice and a lingering oaky rye spice.
“The Remus Repeal collection is all about showcasing the incredible range of aged reserves and medley combinations we can work with in Lawrenceburg,” said Master Blender David Whitmer. “In Series V we have created another exceptional bourbon that is sure to be a fan favorite. The limited number of bottles won’t stay on store shelves for long.”
Remus Repeal Reserve Series V retails for a suggested $89.99 per 750-ml bottle and is now available on retail shelves. Series V is bottled at 100 proof/50% ABV.
Remus Repeal Reserve was recently awarded bourbon Gold, Best in Class at the 2021 Whiskies of the World Awards.
