The door number 15 from the Drinks by the Dram Bourbon Advent Calendar reveals a sample of the Rebel Yell bottled at 40%. On the nose I find a good amount of gingerbread, butter, equaliptus, vanilla, baking spices, hennep, black pepper and clove.
On the palate first some dry spice, tobacco leaf and pencil shaving notes that are followed by red apple, caramel, grapefruit, vanilla, nettle and very dry cassis notes. Medium length dry finish. Not too enthusiastic about this one to be honest, feels a bit harsh to me on the nose and palate… Thanks for sharing a sample Drinks by the Dram!
