Rebel Yell 10 Year Single Barrel is an interesting bourbon with unique company. It’s a double-digit age-stated wheated bourbon that numbers-wise lives in the same realm as Old Fitzgerald, Van Winkle, and William Larue Weller, all outrageously difficult to find wheated bourbons. Come on everyone, climb onto the hype train! That said, Rebel Yell 10 Year actually has the most in common with Old Fitzgerald because it’s sourced from Heaven Hill, who also makes Old Fitzgerald.
Rebel Yell 10 Year Single Barrel bourbon comes from Luxco (now owned by MGP), who also owns Old Ezra, Lux Row Double Barrel Bourbon, Blood Oath, Yellowstone, anything Rebel-branded, and more. This particular single barrel comes from barrel 5083249 and was aged starting 09/06, as shown on the label, but I’m not entirely sure when it was dumped as it’s not disclosed. I found this bottle in 2018/2019, so it could actually be 11 or 12 years old, but I can’t confirm that. There’s already a lot to be intrigued by with Rebel Yell 10 Year Single Barrel Bourbon, so let’s smell and taste this to determine if it’s actually good in this Rebel Yell 10 Year Single Barrel bourbon review.
