Rebel Yell French Oak
Those Rebel Yell folks went and found themselves some French oak to finish their wonderful bourbon in! This release takes its standard mash bill of 68% corn, 20% wheat & 12% malted barley, though has been treated to a six month finish in toasted French oak barrels which previously held wine. Dark fruits, spice and chocolate galore in this bottle.
Nose: Cherry jam and cinnamon swirls, with mocha, treacle toffee and vanilla sponge. A hint of caramelised nuts develops.
Palate: Chai latte and very dark chocolate, with cooked plum, grated nutmeg and more cinnamon.
Finish: Golden syrup and toasty oak spices, with a touch of espresso and forest fruits.
