New Whiskey Labels: Wild Turkey, Highland Park and More
This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:
Wild Turkey cleared a new label for its Master's Keep series. Decades is aged 10 to 20 years and the label (which is subject to change) shows 104 proof.
Edrington cleared three labels for old Highland Parks: a 1964 bottled in 2009, a 1970 bottled in 2010, and a 1971 bottled in 2011.
Deanston released a label for a 20 year old malt matured in Oloroso sherry casks.
A few interesting non-whiskey labels came up recently as well. I really enjoyed K&L's single barrel rums. Now they have a label for a 17 year old blend of Jamaican rums under their Faultline label.
Brandy importer Charles Neal cleared labels for a 25 year old Lemorton Calvados, a 15 year old Domaine du Manoir de Montreuil Calvados and a 15 year old Chateau de Briat Armagnac.
Two different importers cleared labels for new Armagnacs from Domaine D'ognoas, including a 1976 and a 1995.
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.
