Rebel Yell American Whiskey, 45%

Price: $30 Issue: Fall 2015 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

A blend of bourbon and rye whiskeys, 2 years old, no information on the proportions. Very hot, piercing nose: wet corn, tobacco juice, peppermint oil, and pain. Man, that's hot. Bitter and hot on the tongue, with an inappropriate sweetness. Finish backs off on the heat, but is full of wet oak. Can't help thinking this was simply a bad idea.
