Rebel Yell 100 Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (700ml)
Rebel Yell is a Lux Row Distillers brand. Presumably this is another of their sourced whiskeys. Introduced in 2019, no age statement is noted on the label. While we do know it's made from corn, wheat and malted barley, the precise bill isn't disclosed. It is classified as a 'wheated' style, so we can be certain that that grain plays a larger than usual role giving the bourbon a lightness and a little extra sweetness.
Other reviews... Honey-roasted peanuts, maple syrup, and stone fruits are underscored by deep earthy notes of tobacco leaf, dried apple, sassafras leaves, and candied nuts. The palate expresses some tropical dried pineapple fruit and sweet butterscotch, turning full and spicy, with pleasant chocolate and cinnamon hearts candies lending lots of verve and some complexity on the medium finish.

...A straightforward bourbon that won’t wow you, but won’t break the bank either. Rebel Yell 100 most likely won’t impress anyone, but maybe it doesn’t need to. Not every bourbon needs to stand out, as long as it can still deliver an adequate sip for a fair price. Rebel Yell 100 fulfills that definition well. It’s an affordable bourbon that delivers a good enough flavor profile to drink neat, but also thanks to its price tag, encourages you to experiment making cocktails with it as well. - breakingbourbon.com
