Rebel Yell Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has introduced Rebel Yell Single Barrel.
This whetted bourbon was aged for 10 years and bottled one barrel at a time at 100 proof. Rebel Yell Single Barrel will be available nationwide in limited quantity – 2,000 cases – in September, while an additional 4,000 cases are planned for 2017.
By being bottled barrel-by-barrel, each bottle will have a unique flavor profile: depending on how it aged, where in the rickhouse it was placed and the flavors that developed within that barrel. Each bottle includes the barrel number and an “aged since” date on the silk-screened front label.
Moreover, each bottle, complete with a premium matte finish closure and natural wood cork, is sold in individual boxes.
“We are excited to take the classic Rebel Yell recipe and age it 10 years, creating a robust and complex finish,” says Fletcher Buchman, brand manager at Luxco, in a press release. “Some bottles may have a stronger vanilla and caramel flavor, some may favor more oak and wood tones, others may have more floral or tobacco notes, creating a unique tasting experience that may vary from bottle to bottle.”
Rebel Yell Single Barrel will be available in 750-ml. bottles for a suggested retail price of $49.99.
