A flagship Straight Bourbon proves that MGP saved some of the good stuff for themselves.

George Remus Bourbon is named after a legendary Whiskey-man who operated on both sides of the law during Prohibition, earning the nickname "King of the Bootleggers." The George Remus line-up is comprised of high-rye Bourbons aged over five years. Owned by and made in one of the country’s most historic distilleries (MGP), George Remus is perfectly blended from premium stock to become your go-to Bourbon.

First thing first… George Remus is a line of really good Bourbon. It’s also the first flagship Bourbon produced, owned by MGP. George Remus Straight Bourbon is the entry-level for the range. The mash bill is not stated, but we know that MGP has five Bourbon mash bills in production. And while they could have blended them, we think that the flavor profile suggests their 60% corn, 36% rye, 4% malted barley mix. And it’s aged more than five years and bottled without chill-filtration at a lovely 47% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
The brand is named after George Remus — a renowned lawyer and bootlegger from the Prohibition era. He was arrested and convicted and allegedly served as inspiration for the title character The Great Gatsby in the novel of the same name by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Scott

The nose smells hot, but once in the glass it is a smooth bourbon with a nice caramel taste.
 
Drew
Drew,
Not too strong, not too weak. Definitely on the sweeter side for my preference, but you can tell and respect that craftsmanship that went into making this batch. Pretty hefty vanilla and caramel combo, and very smooth for a higher proof. I wouldn't buy it, but I am certainly glad I got it as the quarterly bottle.

I love this!! I like it much better than Angel's Envy.
 
Michael
Michael,
Good dram. I definitely pick up the vanilla more than the caramel. Also hints of the cherry. The rye is not too strong. I would actually prefer it to be stronger. Finishes medium on the Kentucky hug. Would keep this in my cabinet. Good first buy off of Flaviar.

Tasty high rye bourbon. Big rye spice and oak balanced with sweetness. Big bold flavor that’s tasty neat, and stands up to ice and stands out in a cocktail. Excellent bang for your buck

Brad
Brad,
Smooth, flavorful and delicious. Initial flavors of vanilla and spice, covered in a caramel like smoothness that kept me wanting more. I told my wife “This is one of the finest bourbons I’ve had. It tastes like opening a Christmas present.” This is wonderful!

As a newish bourbon drinker I really enjoyed this. So much I prefer to drink this neat rather than in a cocktail and I mostly drink cocktails.

Nice rye spice but alcohol too prevalent in this one. Seems young.

So far pretty average. Definitely needs to be neat as on ice flavors are muted to just sweetness and some floral.
