New Whiskey Labels: Wild Turkey 17 and Tullamore Dew 15


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

Wild Turkey cleared a label for Master's Keep, a 17 year old bourbon.

Tullamore Dew cleared a label for a 15 year old Irish blend.

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.

Any guesses on how much a 17 year old WT might go for? 150? - dan

Based on their pricing generally, I would think $150 would be the minimum.

and, if the filing label art is valid, at a lousy 87 proof, no thanks.

Notice that the back label only says "bottled by," not "distilled and bottled by."

Hmmmm.

Sam, looking at their other labels, they all seem to say "bottled by." Under the regs, "bottled by" can be used by both distillers and bottlers, but it still makes you wonder why they wouldn't use "distilled by."

You were right on with the $150 guess. Thought he interesting thing about it is that the 86.8 proof is cask strength for this one according to Eddie. The barrels were stored in brick warehouses at Stone Castle which are cooler than the metal sided wooden WT ones so less water evaporated.
