New Whiskey Labels: Diageo Orphan Barrels, Japanese Whisky and More
This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:
Diageo cleared a label for the newest release in its Orphan Barrel series: Lost Prophet, a 22 year old Kentucky bourbon. This one released over the weekend and has since been written up by Whisky Advocate who notes it was distilled at Buffalo Trace unlike the previous Orphan Barrels which were distilled at Bernheim.
Springbank cleared a label for Springbank Green, a 12 year old.
It looks like we might be getting a new Japanese whisky. This week labels cleared for Iwai and Iwai Tradition from the Shinshu Mars Distillery on the southern Japanese island of Kyushu.
Note: The fact that a label appears on the TTB database does not necessarily mean it will be produced. In addition, some details on the label, such as proof, can change in the final product.
