New Whiskey Labels: Booker's Rye, Stitzel-Weller, Macallan and More
This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:
Diageo cleared a label for Blade & Bow Single Barrel, a 24 year old bourbon distilled at Stitzel-Weller.
Beam Suntory cleared a label for Knob Creek 2001, a limited edition Knob Creek distilled in 2001 and bottled in 2016. Of course, since it doesn't include an age statement, we can't be sure how many years it actually spent in the barrel.
Beam also released a label for Booker's Rye. Label details can change, but the label they cleared has the rye at 7 years old and 127.1 proof.
High West released a label for a 14 year old light whiskey from MGP. According to the label, it's a corn based whiskey (likely a bourbon mash) distilled between 1999 and 2001 and aged in used barrels.
Edrington cleared a label for Macallan 12 year old Double Cask, aged in both European sherry and American oak.
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.
