    Print this page

    Living in a region soaked in bourbon, it's sometimes hard to get excited when a new bourbon is released.  It’s Kentucky.  We’re swimming in the stuff and we all have our staples. But this new batch is something to look forward to.

    This year’s 2015 Limited Edition Small Batch Four Roses Bourbon is going to be the thing to write home about.  In a recent interview with Jim Rutledge about his career at Four Roses and his upcoming retirement, he led Louisville.com through Cox’s Creek bottling facility as this release was being bottled as .  He picked it up to talk about it as a proud father might talk about his child’s achievements.  Then he expressed that it was one of the best bottles Four Roses had ever produced.  Read that line again and then break out the tent.  You’re going to want to camp out at the liquor store for this one.

    From the press release about this bottle: “This Bourbon is a great tribute to Jim Rutledge, whom I’ve had the privilege to work with closely over the past decade. His knowledge and passion, along with the strong team at our distillery, are responsible for the high-quality Bourbon we produce every day,” said Brent Elliott, who takes the post of master distiller September 1. “I couldn’t think of a better way to toast Jim’s exceptional career.”

    This Small Batch Limited Edition Four Roses will be the perfect toast to Rutledge as he segues into retirement.  According to the press release, “The 2015 Limited Edition Small Batch features a 16-year-old Bourbon from Four Roses’ OBSK recipe, a 15-year-old OESK, a 14-year-old OESK and an 11-year-old OBSV.”  Four Roses has become well-known for its ten different recipes made of two mash bills and five yeast strains.  This is sure to be an excellent bottle and those of you who wind up with one will be quite lucky.  Maybe invite me over for a drink?  This batch hits shelves mid-September.
