Rebel Yell is a wheated bourbon from Kentucky. Matured in charred white oak barrels. Famous brand in the South of USA, at least in the "old South."

Behind the name is a Confederate war cry but this bourbon whiskey also was an inspiration for Billy Idol making an album and a hit song named Rebel Yell.

The former Generation X front man was introduced to Rebel Yell in Mick Jagger's birthday party held by Ronnie Wood.

After some "reviews" from my friends, I was expecting a dreadful dram. Fortunately Rebel Yell managed to surprise me. Not great but a decent bourbon, especially for the price (19 euros for a litre).

Nose: Honey with oak, caramel and vanilla. Pleasant nose, not harsh in any way.

Taste: Honey and caramel and some exotic fruits. Nectarine being the main fruit. Smooth and simple.

Finish: Warming and smooth with oak and sweet fruits.

Balance: Surprisingly mellow and sweet bourbon whiskey. Decent choice for those on a budget.

Here's Billy Idol's story behind his song called Rebel Yell (VH1 Storytellers). The whole show is behind the link but the Rebel Yell story starts at 43:40. I made the link start from there.
