Rebel 5yr 120 Proof Wheated Single Barrel

Barreled on 8/17/17 and bottled at 120 proof, Rebel or Rebel Yell as it was once referred to has long been a value play by Luxco in the Wheated bourbon area, and this single barrel program is no exception. Sporting a 68% corn, 20% wheat, and 12% malted barley mashbill, the unusually high proportion of wheat imparts a lingering fruitiness which stays sweet despite the stronger oak notes which intervene throughout. Noses like a sweet Canadian vanilla bomb with tropical fruit, and mannered oak. On the palate, exceptionally flavored bursting with red fruit, oranges, and lots of oak. I hate to say it, but this whiskey is STRONG, and I LOVE IT!
