New Whiskey Labels: Ardbeg, Four Roses and More
This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:
Moet Hennessy cleared a label for a 21 year old Ardbeg "distilled during some of the most precarious days of Ardbeg's past, when only a handful of casks were set aside."
Four Roses cleared a label for a 2016 Limited Edition Single Barrel labeled Elliot's Special in honor of new master distiller Brent Elliot. It's a 14 year old OESK recipe bourbon.
Luxco cleared a label for Rebel Yell 2016 Limited Edition. It's not clear what will make it different from the regular Rebel Yell (other than the label).
Strong Spirits cleared labels for Redemption Barrel Proof Bourbon and Barrel Proof High Rye Bourbon, both nine year old MGP bourbons.
Pernod Ricard cleared a label for two new Jameson expressions: The Distiller's Safe and The Blender's Dog, both part of their Whiskey Makers series.
This week saw new labels clear for a number of world whiskeys, including whiskeys from France, Spain, Mexico, Germany and Israel.
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.
