New Whiskey Labels: Smooth Ambler, Michek Couvreur and Gold Bars
This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:
Smooth Ambler cleared a label for Old Scout American Whiskey, a bourbon mash whiskey distilled in Tennessee and aged in used barrels. The 84% corn mashbill listed on the label points to George Dickel as the likely source of the whiskey. The label does not include an age statement.
French Scotch bottler Michel Couvreur cleared a label for Blossoming Auld Sherried, a single cask sherried malt.
And in the dumb whiskey category, Gold Bar Premium Whiskey is a rye, corn and barley whiskey "finished on 24-karat gold flake." Apparently, "gold touches every batch of spirit through our signature gold finishing method," which is great, because we all know how good gold tastes.
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.
