This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:
Edrington cleared labels for some very exclusive whiskeys, a 65 year old Macallan Lalique and a 1968 Highland Park.
Whistlepig cleared a label for a 15 year old expression of its Canadian rye.
Just after I made a plea for more Calvados, French spirits importer Charles Neal cleared labels for some old Calvados from Lemorton, a 1972 and a 1987.
Well, here's something that looks super delicious! It's ASB Imitation Whisky, "distilled five times from fruit syrup." And yes, "imitation whisky" is a real, legally defined category.
Lastly, does anyone have any theories as to why this clown is so sad?
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.
