About Cream of Kentucky
J.W. Rutledge Distillery was founded by former Four Roses master distiller Jim Rutledge. As the construction of their new sustainable distillery is underway (a facility that utilizes clean technologies like geothermal heating and cooling, solar energy, and biomass energy), Jim Rutledge sources and blends whiskey from other distilleries to put out new releases under the J.W. Rutledge brands, beginning with Cream of Kentucky.
Their aim is to produce Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and Straight Rye Whiskey the "old-fashioned way" relative to the requisites, guidelines and standards for Straight Whiskey production that have been in place for close to two centuries. The Cream of Kentucky label was first introduced in 1888 by I. Trager & Co. of Cincinnati, Ohio. Before Prohibition ended, the brand was picked up by the renowned Schenley Company and re-introduced to the industry in 1934. Cream of Kentucky reached great success in the 30s and 40s, using the work of famed artist Norman Rockwell.
There are not many things more American than bourbon, and although most of it is produced in Kentucky, it can be produced all over the USA. It must be made with at least 51% corn and bottled at 40% ABV or higher. So why not give this American classic a try?
It's an exceptionally well-balanced and smooth profile that opens with toffee, fruit, spice, as well as a touch of mint. The palate has nutty, chocolate, malt, fruit, as well as cinnamon and oak. Finishes long and pleasantly warming, with rich lingering notes.
