New Whiskey Labels from India and Ireland

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

I don't believe we have previously seen whiskeys from Indian distiller Paul John in the US, but this week, labels cleared for Paul John Classic, Edited, Peated and Brilliance.

Irish bottler West Cork Distillers cleared a label for The Pogues, billed as "the official Irish Whiskey of the legendary band."

Speaking of Irish Whiskey, someone must have decided there were not enough Irish Whiskeys using tired stereotypes on their labels. Thankfully, there seems to be an effort to remedy this situation with new labels like Drunken Sailor and Flaming Leprechaun.

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.

A couple of those Paul John's have some hefty proofs (110+). Very interesting labels.
