While I was out in San Francisco, I sampled some of David’s Rebel bourbon. In fact, we toasted with it. It was okay, but I don’t think I’m in any hurry to add it to my liquor cabinet.
I could not get over two things about Rebel Yell:
Since 1849 — Putting that year on the bottle is just silly since the Civil War did not begin until 1861 and thus the Rebel Yell hadn’t been created yet.
The name — Rebel Yell. Kentucky, a border state, stayed in the Union during the Civil War. While the were certainly Southern sympathizers there, choosing Rebel Yell for the name is historically misleading.
