Kentucky Gentleman is a brand of bourbon whiskey produced by the Sazerac Company at its Barton 1792 distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky. The brand is sold as a blend of 51% straight bourbon and 49% neutral grain spirits and bottled at 40% alcohol by volume (80 U.S. proof). It is a relatively inexpensive brand.[1]

Reviews[edit]

Russian import ban[edit]

In August 2014, the Russian consumer protection agency Rospotrebnadzor announced that it had detected signs of organic chemicals called phthalates in Kentucky Gentleman and that importation of the brand into Russia would therefore be suspended.[3][4][5][6] However, it has been suggested that the importation ban on Kentucky Gentleman should be viewed in the context of a broader dispute between the U.S. and Russia over trade in a wide variety of products as well as other issues such as the governance of Ukraine.[3][4][5][6]
