New Whiskey Labels: New Canadian, Irish and More

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

Diageo cleared a label for Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye, a Canadian blended whisky made from 90% rye.

Jameson cleared a new label for its new Caskmates series of whiskey aged in craft beer barrels.  The label is for the "Stout Edition" which is presumably aged in stout casks.

For Armagnac fans, there were 26 new labels cleared from a variety of different distilleries by independent bottler Darroze, with vintages ranging from 1918 to 2003.

Sazerac appears to be planning a new label in its Stag line, a move sure to excite whiskey geeks...or maybe not.

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.

According to the back label, Jameson supplied the casks for the beer and will be using them again for their whiskey. If it's anything like the New Holland stuff, I are disappoint awaits.

And the Darroze looks fantastic at nearly 100 proof and 11 years. Fingers crossed the David's get on that and offer a reasonable price.

Hahaha, Sku that's a great joke. I got punked for not reading more carefully. While waiting for the slow TBB database to load the images of the new Stag label, in breathless anticipation to see what was joyfully to come.... I saw first (again, very slowly)
...40% ABV
...flavored whiskey

Hilarious! Still chuckling.

When you said "Canadian Stag" I was thinking a barrel proof old Canadian whiskey. I was some what excited until i saw the label...
