The original rebellious, Wheated Bourbon now louder and more fun.

The original Rebel Yell Whiskey was made by the W. L. Weller & Sons Company. And though that distillery popped into existence in 1849, it wasn’t until the mid-1900s that they started bottling American Whiskeys under the Rebel Yell 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?

Throughout its entire history Rebel Yell has consistently won over a loyal group of fans and garnered awards going all the way back to the "Certificate of Distinction" from the Centennial Exposition of Paris in 1900. Since the early 1980s the label has been lovingly attended to by American Whiskey-lover David Sherman’s beverage company, Luxco. They have six core Whiskeys in their line up and you should try them all.

Rebel Yell started life as a wheated Bourbon, and their core Bourbons still are today. The mash bill follows one of Heaven Hill’s recipes at 68% corn, 20% wheat, and 12% malted barley. It’s aged in medium #3 char casks at 125 proof. But where the original Bourbon is bottled at 40% ABV, Rebel Yell 100 Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is bottled at 50% ABV for the perfect combo of heat and smoothness. The extra power puts the "Yell" back into the bottle in all the best ways.


Smartass Corner:
Billie Idol was drinking with the Rolling Stones at a party. Keith Richards loved straight Whiskey and he was fond of Rebel Yell — he’s the one who brought the bottle. Billie liked the name and asked the gents if he could borrow it for a song title."

Dick,
Very nice flavor. Smooth sipping whiskey
 
Jared
Jared,
To be honest, I ordered because of the description. Really interested in the berry notes and PB & J tones. I do not detect that at all. I detect the nuttiness, toffee, and oak. the first feel is smooth and then it warms with the alcohol feel. Decent bourbon, just not what I was hoping for.

Strong but subtle, bit of an aftertaste but if you’re an experienced drinker it won’t bother you. Very reasonably priced for the quality. Worth a try!
 
Dwight
Dwight,
Pretty good for the price. Found it to have an “earthy” flavor. Likely the wheat and nut flavor notes.

Gregory
Gregory,
I’m no bourbon expert by any means, but I have tried my hand at several different bourbons and this one is the best one yet.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Very sweet wheated bourbon, recommend letting it bloom by melting a little ice in it. Finishes right on the tongue with a flavorful burst that fades quickly.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Very smooth, light wheat, light honey, flavors are not complex, but instead offer a consistent well-balanced profile. Finish is smooth and honeyed with only a slight trace of spice. The original recipe for Rebel Yell dates back to 1849, when it was invented at what would later become the Stitzel-Weller Distillery. Although many famous bourbons were produced at the Stitzel-Weller Distillery (including Pappy Van Winkle), most shared one unique characteristic pioneered by William Laurel Weller himself — instead of rye, the bourbons used wheat as a secondary grain in their mashbill, lending a softer, smoother flavor to the whiskey.

In 1936, nearly a century after the original recipe was developed, former Louisville Mayor Charles F. Farnsley officially registered the “Rebel Yell” brand, distilling the bourbon limited batches for exclusive distribution in the southern United States. This practice lasted all the way into the 1980s, when the Stitzel-Weller Distillery was disbanded and Rebel Yell found its way into the hands of LUXCO Spirited Brands. Now, more than 150 years later, Rebel Yell is bridging the gap between its proud heritage and modern tastes, and is available nationwide for the first time in its history. A new whiskey from Rebel Yell, this bourbon is made with the same wheated mashbill as the rest of the lineup. It’s bottled at 50% ABV, as compared to 40% ABV for regular Rebel Yell bourbon.
