Rebel unveils its limited edition single barrel bourbon, aged for 10 years

For those who enjoy a classic bourbon, there’s a new release to look out for: the brand Lux Row Distillers is bringing out a limited edition release of Rebel 10 year old single barrel bourbon.

Rebel Bourbon is known for its classic Kentucky bourbon, coming from Bardstown, Kentucky where the distillery opened in 2018.  Formerly known as Rebel Yell, the brand has a long history dating back to the 1930s and has been name-checked by celebrities from The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards to Billy Joel.

The new release uses a classic wheated recipe from the 1840s and is bottled one barrel at a time, promising to deliver vanilla and dark fruits along with citrus and oak for a smooth, spicy drink. Each bottle of the limited edition release will be marked with a barrel number and a date indicating how long it has been aged.

The Rebel 10-year has also been submitted for awards, winning a Double Platinum at the American Spirits Council of Tasters (ASCOT) Awards. Rebel releases limited editions annually, using single casks and a high abv of 50% to create a distinctive experience.

“This annual Rebel 10-Year Single Barrel shows how Rebel is bridging the gap between its heritage and modern tastes,” said Lux Row Distillers Master Distiller John Rempe. “I think consumers will appreciate the hand-crafted single barrel process when they experience the robust, rebellious flavor and mature finish of this extra smooth sipping whiskey.”

The Rebel 10 year single barrel bourbon will be released later this month, for $100 for a 750 ml bottle.

Missouri Oak adds an American twist to an Irish tradition
Redbreast Missouri Oak

 

As with many Irish whiskies, Redbreast Missouri Oak spends most of its time maturing in a combination of ex-sherry and bourbon barrels. This part of the process will give a flavor profile similar to, if not identical, to Redbreast’s standard product. However, there is a bit of a twist that comes in the form of a 10-month stint in a virgin Missouri oak barrel. The cask is crafted from wood found in the Ozark Forest, and as Redbreast’s latest creation is the first thing in it, you can expect the oak to impart a lot of flavor -- and the tannins it provides are what you will initially taste, according to Redbreast. Those initial notes are followed by a “luscious and creamy texture.” Redbreast itself promises notes of cinnamon and ginger, courtesy of this extra step in the process.

This distillery just released its first-ever single-malt Scotch whisky
Scotch fans have eagerly awaited this release for five years
Ardnahoe

If you’re new to the world of whisk(e)y, you might not know that Scotch whisky is broken up into five distinct regions. They are Campbeltown, the Lowlands, the Highlands, Speyside, and Islay. Campbeltown is literally just a town, but the other regions make up a fairly large geographical area of the country. With one other exception: Islay.

Islay is an island in the Inner Hebrides that is filled with thousands of sheep, various Highland cows, around 3,000 people, and nine distilleries. Known for its smoky, peaty whiskies, Islay is home to big names like Ardbeg, Bowmore, Bunnahabhain, Bruichladdich, Kilchoman, Cao Ila, Laphroaig, Lagavulin, and most recently Ardnahoe.
