It's never easy to take over for a bourbon legend. But when Jim Rutledge stepped down after 49 years at the helm as master distiller at Four Roses last year, someone had to step in and fill those big shoes. Four Roses Elliott's Select Bourbon is the first limited release from new master distiller Brent Elliott, and while it won't make Rutledge fans forget his legacy, it's a great start for Elliott. Bottled at barrel strength after aging for 14 years, Elliott's Select uses the OESK recipe — one of ten that Four Roses produces. A delicious progression for Four Roses, only 10,000 hand numbered bottles will be available.
