New Whiskey Labels: Balvenie, Old Forester and More
This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:
William Grant cleared a label for Batch 3 of Balvenie Tun 1509.
Brown Forman cleared a label for Old Forester 1920, an NAS "prohibition style" bourbon bottled at 115 proof.
New Riff Distillery cleared a label for a new expression of their MGP distilled O.K.I. bourbon. The O.K.I. Antique Barrel Finish is a 9 year old bourbon finished in a new barrel made "according to circa-1900 coopering techniques."
New Calvados. Nicolas Palazzi is bringing in two Calvados from Domaine du Tertre, a 1998 and a 2000. Charles Neal is bringing in a series of Chateau de Breuil Calvados, including a VSOP, a 15 year old and a 20 year old.
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.
