New Whiskey Labels: Cask Strength Peat Monster, Very Olde St. Nick and More
This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:
Compass Box cleared a label for a cask strength version of their Peat Monster blended malt.
Very Olde St. Nick is a legendary American whiskey brand that was made for export to Japan. This week, Frank-Lin, a California based bottler, cleared labels for three different expressions of Very Olde St. Nick bourbon: a no age statement Kentucky bourbon, a barrel proof no age statement Kentucky bourbon and an 8 year old bourbon with no state of origin listed.
Michter's cleared a label for a barrel proof rye. It is a straight Kentucky rye with no age statement.
And Longhorn Whiskey from North Texas Distillers may win the award for worst slogan ever: "As smooth as this horn is long." Er, what?
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.
