Luxco and MGP have announced the release of Remus Repeal Reserve Series V Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
Remus Repeal Reserve is an annual series from George Remus Bourbon. It’s produced to commemorate the repeal of Prohibition in 1933.
Series V is a blend of five bourbons ranging from 2005 to 2008.
“Remus Repeal Reserve has been such an amazing journey for our distillery team, and we wanted to do something extraordinary for our fifth-year anniversary,” said Master Blender David Whitmer. “Series V exemplifies what our Remus Repeal collection stands for: to showcase the incredible range of medleys and aged reserves we work with in Lawrenceburg.”
Named after the “King of the Bootleggers,” Remus Repeal Reserve comes from MGP’s 174-year-old distillery in Lawrenceburg, IN. Made in a signature high-rye style, the blend changes each year, allowing the team to experiment with various mash bills and aged reserves.
Remus Repeal Reserve Series V is comprised of 9% 2005 bourbon (21% Rye), 5% 2005 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, caramel, maple syrup, roasted nuts and leather, the company reports. The palate includes toffee and vanilla, followed by chocolate, glazed nuts and oak. The finish is candied fruit, caramel, baking spice and a lingering oaky rye spice.
Remus Repeal Reserve Series V retails for a suggested price of $89.99 per 750-ml. bottle. It launches in limited quantities this September to coincide with National Bourbon Heritage Month.
Series V is 100 proof.
MGP purchased Luxco earlier this year.
