The fourth release of "A Very Rare Bourbon" is the best yet with a perfectly well-balanced dram of spicy Bourbon love.

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.

George Remus Bourbon created an annual limited release of special Bourbon casks they call "A Very Rare Bourbon." Remus Repeal Reserve Series IV Straight Bourbon Whiskey is — as you would expect — the fourth edition. They combined two of their signature Bourbons distilled in 2008 with two different mash bills to get just the right balance. 77% is Bourbon with 21% rye in the mash, the rest is Bourbon made from 36% rye. And just to prove all those kids wrong who said "You’ll never use Algebra in real life," that makes a blended dram that has 24.45% rye. And it’s bottled at 50% ABV in a retro Art Deco decanter, so you’ll taste every fraction with glee. All the reviewers are salivating over this one.

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.

Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
