Rebel Straight Bourbon Whiskey 70cl
A deliciously different wheated bourbon from Rebel
Rebel Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Founded in 1849 by William Larue Weller, Rebel have been defying trends since the very beginning. At that time the everyone was creating bourbon using a rye mashbill. They decided to do things differently, and pioneered wheat-based bourbon.
Now, over 170 years later, they continue to defy trends - whilst also winning awards with their wheated recipe.
Their Rebel Straight Bourbon Whiskey is the 'original mischief-maker'. It's still made today (in Bardstown, Kentucky) using their time-honoured recipe.
On the nose this ia a bourbon which is full of sweet honey, butter and raisins.
The flavour is big and well rounded, which directly follows on from the aroma. Honey, butter and rich dark fruits come through. The finish is long and warm, and introduces a touch of spice right at the end.

This is deliciously smooth, whether you prefer it neat, on the rocks, or mixed.
We particularly like this in a classic Bourbon & Cola. Pour 50ml of the bourbon into a rocks glass with a few cubes of ice. Top up with your favourite cola (we like Franklin & Sons 1886 Cola - but any quality cola should work). Stir gently, and enjoy!
