New Whiskey Labels: Jefferson's Wood Experiments, Aberfeldy and More

This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:

Bottler Kentucky Artisan Distillery cleared 13 new labels for Jefferson's Ridiculously Small Batch Wood Experiments.  Each label indicates the product is Indiana bourbon aged in a variety of different types of barrels (different chars, barrel inserts, "cube tubes" -whatever that is, etc). Each label is listed as 200 ml and labeled "not intended to be sold separately" so presumably, these are part of a set.

The Last Drop cleared a label for a new 48 year old blended Scotch distilled in 1965 and bottled in 2014. Unlike previous iterations, this blend saw its secondary aging in bourbon casks. The label states there are 592 bottles.

Bacardi cleared a label for a new Aberfeldy 16 year old.

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.

I'm placing my bet now: The Jefferson's Ridiculous Single-Xperi-Oak Project will he sold in packs of three for upwards of $100 dollars, and somebody from that company will find a way to reference Stizel-Weller, probably only fot marketing purposes.

I believe that's what all the OB Aberfeldys look like now. In person, on an actual bottle, I don't think they look garish. More like snake oil sold by an old-timey peddler. In a good way.

Nope, the Jefferson's will be sold in groups of five.

Confirmed: Box is solid in two separate sets of 5. Box Set #1 and #2 just arrived in Virginia and sell 1L for roughly $99($105 after tax). These two sets appear to exclude Exp No's: 3, 7, 8, 14, 15 (assuming that it only goes up to 15).
