Remus Gatsby Reserve 15-year-old bourbon coming soon from Ross & Squibb
Ross & Squibb is preparing to release a 15-year-old bourbon pulled from MGP's oldest stocks. Remus Gatsby Reserve will be released alongside Remus Repeal Reserve as a limited edition bottling.
While this year's edition of Remus Repeal Reserve will be considerably younger than last year's, it appears that Ross & Squibb saved some of their older stocks for this release. Also, unlike Repeal Reserve, this is bottled at a cask-strength 115 proof.
Gatsby Reserve celebrates some of the history of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby":
Crated with the finest 15-year-old reserves, this limited edition, cask strength straight bourbon celebrates the release of F. Scott Fitzgerald's iconic novel "The Great Gatsby" a century ago.
You see, legend has it, Fitzgeralds titular character 'Jay Gatsby' was inspired by Remus.
Some say Fitzgerald and Remus' fortuitous 1918 meeting began the 'drums of destiny.' Others believe Fitzgerald gathered plenty of influence from Remus' many newspaper exposés.
In any case, one thing is for sure - it's a legendary story that calls for an equally legendary sip. Cheers!
