What does anyone expect from an 80 proof $18 bottle of straight bourbon? They don’t expect to be wholeheartedly impressed of course, but they probably foresee it as a straightforward drinking experience with a traditional flavor profile and thin mouthfeel. That is all true of Rebel Yell Bourbon’s 80 proof version, which makes it the furthest thing any bourbon drinker who has more than one bourbon in their lives will ever want. But...if you’re someone who is reaching for a sip of bourbon for the first time, Rebel Yell should be on your short list to try. It's an extremely approachable bourbon that sports the classic vanilla, oak, and leather notes, that leans a touch towards the sweeter side. Compared to what other spirits offer at $18, it’s amazing Lux Row can offer a bourbon of this decent quality at such a price. Rebel Yell Straight Bourbon is never going to impress anyone, but it will provide a warm welcome to anyone just getting to know and understand what bourbon is.
