New Whiskey Labels: Bowmore, High West, Wasabi (?!?) and More

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

Bowmore cleared labels for the third edition of their Devil's Casks, a blend of Oloroso and PX sherry aged whiskies and for a Mizunara cask finish.

High West issued a new label for Yippee Ki-Yay, a wine cask finished version of their Double Rye. The back label has some great copy on it too.

St. George Spirits cleared a label for a Kentucky bourbon bottled for K&L's Faultline label.  It is NAS and the distillery or distilleries are not disclosed, but maybe one of the Daves will let us know some details in the comments.

I'm not a big fan of corn whiskey, but I do love these cool, retro labels for Cobb County Corn Whiskey and Georgia Mountain Dew from the folks at R.M. Spirits in Georgia.

There have been a lot of whiskey related lawsuits lately, so I suppose it was only a matter of time before we saw a label for a truly Litigious Whiskey.

And what's the newest label from Sazerac, makers of George T. Stagg, E.H. Taylor and Blanton's? It's Sabi, a wasabi flavored spirit whiskey.  Well, at least they didn't resort to silly cliches.  Oh, wait, the label has a dragon and a samurai on it and is said to be "like a smooth ninja kick to the face."

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.
