The original mischief-maker at Rebel Bourbon, the Whiskey brand that inspired one of the greatest 80s songs.

The original Rebel Bourbon was made by the W. L. Weller & Sons Company and it was actually William Larue Weller himself who pioneered replacing rye with wheat in Bourbon. And though the distillery popped into existence in 1849, it wasn’t until the mid-1900s that they started bottling American Whiskeys under the Rebel Bourbon brand. The formula and branding were actually created by a character named Charles R. Farnsley — who served as both Mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, and as a Congressman… politicians and alcohol, right? Today, the name might have changed, but the rebellious spirit (and the formula) are the same. 

We're sure you've connected the dots to a certain Billy Idol by now and let us tell you how the story goes. Billy was doing shots with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Ron Wood at a party. Keith Richards just loved him some hard liquor and he was fond of Rebel Yell — the brand that Rebel Bourbon was sold under at the time. Billy liked the name and asked the gents if he could borrow it for a song title — you know, the one where he's asking for more, more, more.

At Rebel Bourbon, they say their Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is the original mischief-maker. Made from Rebel Bourbon time-honored recipe with a mash bill of corn, wheat and malt and bottled at 80 proof, this bottle packs a punch and delivers a smooth body, packed with flavor and spice. Critics seem to think it's pretty great as well, with this Rebel Bourbon bottle winning Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirit Competition in 2016.

Mike
Mike,
Weak and dirty is what I get when drinks this. The little flavor that is there has a background hint of mud.
 
Logan
Logan,
Smooth, very easy to drink

guest,
Good for cheap
 
Tyler
Tyler,
Underwhelming. One note, sugary pastry. It's not bad but I think there are better options even in the bottom shelf.
 
David
David,
Smells nice out of the bottle. First sip has a little burn. Never really achieves smooth like other Bourbons. OK to keep around in for a mixer, but not for a top shelf sipper.
 
Mark
Mark,
Daily drinker. You will not find a better bourbon for less than $20. Great buy!
 
John
John,
Easily as good or perhaps better than Maker's Mark. Great aroma, quite smooth, very significant carmel flavor from the burnt oak barrel.
 
Mike
Mike,
Meh. You get what you pay for. Over ice isn't bad. Cuts the massive bite.

Cheap and a nice drink!

Alex
Alex,
Picked this bottle up for $9.99 and I was shocked. This has all of the flavor of a 12 year bourbon with a surprisingly smooth finish. Rated higher because the price is so low
 
William
William,
Great? No. Darn good for the money? Yes. This one seems to be changing as they built out the new distillery, but it's settled on a more grain-forward bourbon with a lot of rye notes. Not bad for sipping and great for mixing.

For the price, it’s a solid whiskey. It is not complex but definitely sippable.

smooth

Just ok. Light on flavor
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Good everyday table bourbon. Not complex at all, but it is smooth and very drinkable. We all wish we could drink George T Stagg everyday, but for normal people this is a great weeknight pour.
 
Bianca
Bianca,
Average bourbon ok for sipping on the rocks or in cocktails.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Good one that is inexpensive. Not too sweet like Jack or Jim.

Best value for a $16 bottle of bourbon
 
Paul
Paul,
Truly wonderful bourbon. Complex smoky flavors with oaken overtones supported by caramel and vanilla. A truly classic American Bourbon. Even though another distiller may have licence number 1 to distill spirits, Rebel Yel has been being made from the same recipe, the same way, by the same family since the 1840's
 
Nathan
Nathan,
Light, slightly spicy, with a corn taste, what you’d expect from a bottom shelf whiskey, but very drinkable.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
I'm at a loss for words, but I'll try. I believe you can find a better bottle of bourbon for the money than Rebel Yell! Very smooth for a young bourbon and a very nice price at around $16 a bottle!
