From the company website:George Remus Bourbon is proud to introduce the highly-anticipated Remus Repeal Reserve Series VI Bourbon, the latest edition of the award-winning series. Crafted with a medley of five rare bourbon reserves from 2008-2014 at the historic Ross & Squibb Distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, Series VI continues our high-quality tradition with aromas of nutmeg and saddle leather, followed by notes of candied fruit, fig jam, oak and barrel char, mint and slight caramel, nutmeg, toffee and honey. The finish features sweet candied fruit, leather and a lingering sweetness and rye spice. It hits shelves in September for National Bourbon Heritage Month, and judging by the anticipation for Series VI, it won’t last long.

Remus Repeal Series 6 taste and aftertaste
Flavor-wise, I wish Remus Repeal 6 could be more dense, viscous, or rich, but it still tastes amazing in its current form. I can’t deny that.
Remus Repeal Series 6 Rating
The question I see over and over is, “is it worth it?”. It could be worth ~$100 depending on your budget, but it’s not a must buy either even at MSRP. FOMO is real, especially since Series 5 seems to have been so highly touted (I haven’t had it yet), but you’re not quite missing out with number 6. If you want to get a bottle or have one, you have to let go of everything you know about Series 5 and accept Series 6 as a unique release. Only then will you find true enjoyment without attachment or expectations.
I have far too much fun writing about whiskey and singlehandedly running The Whiskey Shelf to bring you independent, honest, and useful reviews, comparisons, and more.

Shattered glass really sucks, so if you’re on the move, this Glencairn-like stainless steel snifter glass should survive your travels. Full transparency, this is an Amazon affiliate link, so I may earn a commission if you buy this or something else from Amazon.
