Rebel Yell Small Batch Straight Rye Whiskey (700ml)
Moving beyond Bourbon and into rye, the Rebel Yell portfolio continues to expand thanks to Lux Row's efforts to re-invigorate the brand which dates back to 1849. The Small Batch rye is described by diffordsguide.com "...as spicy but approachable and also unusually fruity with dried fruit and burnt fruit cake flavours." 4.5 stars. 45% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... “Aged 24 months.” In these debased times, they should be applauded for the correct labeling of this 2 year old. Somewhat hot nose of grass, cinnamon, Pixy Stix powder candy, and oak. Simple, sweet on the palate with a crisping of rye bitterness and oak. Easy-drinking and not overly young. Color me surprised: it’s well-made for inexpensive young rye. 84 points - whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: Lew Bryson 2015
...Way too young in that the grain and the tannin are barely on speaking terms. Negligible balance, though the light liquorice note on early delivery and late spices do salvage something. 83.5 points - Jim Murrays Whisky Bible 2021
