This is a complex and smooth Bourbon. 10 Years in a Single Barrel, the color is dark. The taste is smooth, fruity and lots of caramel and of course Oak. An awesome Bourbon! I purchased two Bottles and don't regret it .


Vanilla, dry fruits and little bit of cinnamon.


Caramel, vanilla, oak. Sweetness.


Oak, little spiciness, dryness

General description

Rebel Yell 10 Yr Single Barrel (10YSB) is a wheated bourbon distilled by Heaven Hill for independent bottler and distributor Luxco.  Internet research indicates the mashbill is likely the same or similar to Old Fitzgerald and Larceny bourbons, also made by Heaven Hill.

With its slightly higher proof, I find Rebel Yell 10YSB to be a nice change of pace when considering a wheated bourbon such as Larceny, Makers Mark, or one of the hard to find Weller releases.  Rebel Yell 10YSB is a solid, well-blended enjoyable sipper.

Distiller: Heaven Hill
Bottler: Luxco
Mashbill: 68% Corn, 20% Wheat, 12% Malted Barley
Cask: Oak barrel char: #3
Barrel Entry: 125 Proof
Barrel #: 5083248
Aging began in September 2006
Bottle Age Stated: 10 Years
ABV: 50% (100 Proof)

I drank it neat, from a Glencairn glass.


Brown sugar and simple syrup greet the nose as the juice is poured.  Rebel Yell 10YSB's aroma is light and wheaty with a hint of sweet corn.  A trace of piney wood shavings rise from the bottom of the glass as the bourbon is drained.


The simple syrup, brown sugar, and wheaty grain aromas flow to the mouth, washing in a faint biscuity taste.  On the mid-palet, there is a hint of warm baking spice, dry cut grass and roasted peanuts.  No hint of wood is present until the glass is nearly empty and only then does a light dusting of cut pine come forward.

Balance, Body, Feel and Look:
Pleasant and mellow, Rebel Yell 10YSB is well-balanced with a dry and viscous mouth feel.  As the dram is enjoyed, the eye is entertained by long thin legs which drip quickly down the Glenncairn's interior.


Rebel Yell 10YSB's finish is short with little to no bourbon burn which I find typical of wheated bourbons. It closes pleasantly with a little fresh corn sweetness.  After the dram is gone, cut plywood can be drawn to the senses from the Glencairn.
