Rebel Single Barrel Bourbon (Barrel-7654702 - MYSTERIO) - Bourbon Pursuit & Keg N Bottle Private Barrel Pick 750 ml
On May 18th, 2021 Kenny, Ryan, Paul, and Jason met up at Mammy's Kitchen & Bar in Bardstown for their traditional Pre-Selection meal. They needed to make sure they had a full belly, as they got ready to select a whopping 6 barrels from a total of 12 samples (3 Ezra's, and 3 Rebels).
All of the samples were contract distilled by Heaven Hill and were between 4 & 5 years old at the time of selection and ranged in proof from 122-128 (Ezra barrelled in Spring 2016, and Rebel barrelled in Spring 2017). The team had no problem isolating 6 terrific barrels and was so impressed by how well the barrels were drinking at that age. We hope you enjoy collecting all 6.
Mashbills (Contract distilled by Heaven Hill), Bottling Proof 120
- Ezra Brooks: 78%. Corn, 10% Rye, 12% Malted Barley
- Rebel: 68% Corn, 20% Wheat, 12% Malted Barley
- Nose - An inviting nose, spongey and sticky, with sweet orchard fruits and honey - think green apple, cotton candy, and caramel.
Taste - The palate opens to cinnamon frosting, sweet grains roll across the palate interwoven with vanilla, and waves of Dutch apple pie.
- Finish - A spiced, yet lovely decadence long and dense on the palate that has you coming back again and again.
