Rebel Yell, 40%

Price: $13 Issue: Summer 2015 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Redesigned label, wincingly generic in looks, even for a bottom-shelf 80 proofer. Whiskey's quite light in color, and smells young as well: sweet, a wheated bourbon hint of peanuts, and just the faintest hint of wood. Mouth is warm, softly corny, and a little bittersweet on the finish. But that's it. Just not much going on here.
