Those same qualities are what make Rebel Yell Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey the true taste to embody our country's storied history. Fourteen years prior to the great battle of Chickamaunga, Georgia, the first bottle of Rebel Yell was produced. It's heritage still lives on to this day.

    Palate
    slight spice, slightly sweet...nice balance still
    Finish
    lingers a moment, then drops off fast in a dry way.

    excellent bargain....along with Ezra Brooks! silly these folks below calling it 'rot gut' and such. there's some depth here. add a drop of water and it really mellow, deepens. amazing.

    Color
    lighter than Jim Beam and darker than Evan Williams Honey
    Nose
    Smells a bit sweet, but has a good Whiskey bite.
    Body
    Not too thick and goes down smooth.
    Palate
    great
    Finish
    A good feeling, not overwhelming, warmness

    I started drinking whiskey like a way of life when I got to college. I started off with Wild Turkey and when my bank account started to run dry I went to Jim Beam. When it got lower i tried Kentucky Gentleman, which my friend worships, but I couldn't bring myself to drink something that bad unless it was my last resort. I drank Jim Beam one night and punched out my fraternity's house window. I saw a fifth of Rebel Yell was way cheaper so I decided to give it a shot. I was worried, but I thought it couldn't be any worse than KG. I was in a great mood all night, and enjoyed it, and the ladies loved it too. Best damn whiskey for the price! Rebel yell for all occasions, and Wild Turkey for the BEST.

    Dollar for dollar, not a better whisky out there. Over the years I have made a point to buy a different bottle of liquor every time I go to my store of choice. The manager recommended this particular whiskey and I haven't looked back. To give this brand anything lower than a 70 is a ridiculous and ignorant.

    Color
    Medium to light amber

    Sweet corn and oak
    Body
    Medium but assertive; young
    Palate
    Sweet honey then summer corn, with an honest balance
    Finish
    Satisfying, warm and somewhat lengthy

    A perfectly good whiskey, but at the same price as the exquisite Beam white label, I'm not likely to go here again.

    Color
    Amber - it's the caramel of course
    Nose
    Good old corn liquor
    Body
    More than adequate. Because of this, it can not only be savored straight or on the rocks, but mixes well for an Old Fashioned or a Manhattan
    Palate
    Pure good Bourbon flavor - no romance
    Finish
    Smooth feeling from entry along the palate and down the throat.

    I have been drinking Bourbon since the age of fifteen, that is to say, for fifty-one years. I was introduced to Rebel Yell in 1985 when I was encouraged by business associates who noticed my penchant for Bourbon, to buy some in The South while on vacation. When I returned North, I found a distributor who would sell it to a local liquor store. It is now more commonly found. Rebel Yell is the drinking man's Bourbon for those who savor the flavor. If you want panache, buy something written up in The New Yorker Magazine and flatter yourself. If you enjoy your liquor, and I do not mean alcoholism, buy Rebel Yell. It mixes well for cocktails that are enhanced by additives, not overpowered. People who drink sissified drinks taste my 80 proof Rebel Yell and think that it is much stronger. This Bourbon is just plain old "GOOD."

    Smoothest there is. None Better

    I do not know about the fruitiness or hint of raisin or any of that stuff. I have been a bourbon drinker for over 35 years. I have been drinking Rebel Yell for as long. It is as good as any bourbon there is and it is the brand I look for. I really feel the bad reviews are by people who are influenced by price. If you are paying more for Beam, Daniels ( I know not a true bourbon, but close enough, Kentucky Whiskey), or Makers Mark you may be paying too much. It used to be only available in the south, it was that exclusive in the 70's-80's. This is so smooth I turned a non-drinker into a bourbon drinker. Jack couldn't do that nor Beam...no way. . It is all a matter of taste said the farmer's wife when she kissed the cow. This is not as tasty as Wild Turkey or Knob Creek...but it is close and an excellent bourbon,whatever the price.

    Color
    Straw yellow
    Nose
    Medium smoke, light peat, lemon zest, maraschino cherries.
    Body
    A bit wattery, light and slippery.
    Palate
    Some sweetness, Peat, lemon, spice, charcoal.
    Finish
    long, medium astringency, with a strange maraschino cherry after taste.

    A little thin and straight forward in the character department. But still a decent whisky. I don't know if it deserves the hype, but it certainley deserves some respect.

    Amazing quality for the price. Best kept secret in the bourbon famiy. A little water brings out the best. Wish it was 86 or 90 proof instead of 80.

    This whiskey doesn't have any real kick, but is very good none the less. I especially like the way the finish is so well divided into different flavours over time.
