New Whiskey Labels: Kilkerran, Forty Creek and More
This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:
Really old Scotch grain whiskey is still out there. A.D. Rattray cleared a label for a 1964 Girvan single grain whiskey.
A label cleared for a new cask strength expression of Kilkerran Bourbon Wood.
Campari, new owners of the popular Canadian distillery Forty Creek, cleared a label for Forty Creek Three Grain Harmony 2015.
You would think that companies would want to name their whiskeys after things that taste good or at least have positive taste associations, but apparently not always since this week saw label approvals for whiskeys named Hog Fuel and Rabbit Spit.
And in more news of the weird is Preacher's Pardon 8 year old Kentucky bourbon from Frank-Lin who preaches perfection and is ready to pardon you.
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.
