Made in a high-rye style, Remus Repeal Reserve features a new blend of bourbons each year, which Stirsman said allows his team to experiment with their various mash bills and aged reserves.

The distiller’s notes show Series VII to feature aromas of caramelized pecans, candied cherry and maple syrup. On the palate, caramel, maple and candied raisin, lead to a candied cherry, barrel char and rich cinnamon body. The finish delivers cinnamon and peppermint spice, with lingering notes of vanilla, caramel and oak.
“We believe we have some of the best whiskey in the world aging here at the Ross & Squibb Distillery,” Stirsman said. “The Remus Repeal Reserve series allows our team the opportunity to showcase these great spirits, as well as showcase our expertise at blending our best barrels to create a special medley each year.”
