New Whiskey Labels: New Jack Daniel's, Old Glenrothes and More
This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:
Brown Forman cleared Jack Daniel's Sinatra Century, a 100 proof JD to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the birth of Ol' Blue Eyes (proof on label approvals is often just a placeholder but I assume the 100 proof here is a tie in to the 100th birthday). The label states that the whiskey was "matured with grooved oak barrels for boldness and depth."
A few months ago I wrote about a series of new Ardbeg labels celebrating the 200th anniversary of the distillery: Continuum, Bicentennial, Atmosphere and Anniversary. They are now joined by another, Perpetuum, which has the same tasting notes as the other four.
A label cleared for a distillery bottling of a 1968 single cask Glenrothes that was bottled in 2013.
WhistlePig released a label for a single barrel version of their 10 year old Canadian rye which appears to be for retailers or other private parties and may be cask strength.
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.
