I can’t resist humming a few lines from Billy Idol’s 1983 hit “Rebel Yell” whenever I encounter this whiskey.
According to rock legend – Billy wrote the song after attending a party fueled by the aforementioned beverage.
Rock ‘n’ Roll & Whiskey – the perfect mix.
Would Rebel Yell deliver?
Well the nose is sweet bourbon – full of popcorn, bubblegum & a touch of spice.
The mouthfeel is smooth, easy & pleasant.
A touch of intensity on the finish as it slowly dries out.
Not raucous rock to me – more bubblegum punk – which both Billy & Rebel Yell Whiskey excel in.
A suitable pairing.
