New Update


Ross & Squibb Distillery, based in Lawrenceburg, Indiana (a state in the US) has announced it will release its Remus Repeal Reserve Series VI Straight Bourbon Whiskey this September. The limited-edition bourbon is the sixth-annual offering of the distillery’s award-winning Remus Repeal Reserve Bourbon collection. Bottled at 100 proof/50 percent ABV, Remus Repeal Reserve Series VI will retail for a suggested 99.99 USD per 750 ml bottle and will be available in limited quantities in September to coincide with National Bourbon Heritage Month.

Created by Master Distiller Ian Stirsman and his team of Master Distillers and Master Blenders, Remus Repeal Reserve Series VI Straight Bourbon Whiskey comprises five bourbons, aged between 8-14 years, from its 175-year-old distillery.

Made in a signature high-rye style, the medley changes each year, allowing Stirsman and his team to experiment with their various mash bills and aged reserves. Remus Repeal Reserve Series VI is comprised of 2 percent 2008 Bourbon (21 percent rye), 17 percent 2012 Bourbon (36 percent rye), 27 percent 2012 Bourbon (21 percent rye), 29 percent 2014 Bourbon (21 percent rye) and 25 percent 2014 Bourbon (36 percent rye). Series VI leads with aromas of rich candied fruit with a hint of nutmeg and saddle leather. The initial taste includes candied fruit and fig jam, followed by oak and barrel char, mint and slight caramel, nutmeg, toffee and honey. The finish offers a balance of sweet candied fruit and leather, with lingering sweetness and rye spice.

Previous releases of Remus Repeal Reserve have achieved some of the highest recognition in the bourbon category, including winning Best Of Class at the 2021 Sunset International Spirits Competition, being named among the Top 5 American Whiskeys of 2021 by Fred Minnick, and earning 98 points from The Tasting Panel Magazine (for both Remus Repeal Reserve Series IV and V).
