“Jim Rutledge, the famed former master distiller who revived Four Roses Bourbon, is back from retirement.
Rutledge released a revival bottling of the Cream of Kentucky Bourbon, an old Schenley Company brand produced at several distilleries, including the James Pepper distillery in Lexington.
The new version apparently was selected by Rutledge and is an 11 1/2-year-old, 102-proof Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey. About 9,000 bottles will be released.”
“This is some really amazing bourbon,” Rutledge said in a news release. “I’m very proud of the product and think consumers will enjoy it. This is an exciting sneak peak for bourbon fans into the many great things we are working on with new products as well as the development of the J.W. Rutledge Distillery.”-Jim Rutledge Master Distiller
