This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:
Pernod Ricard cleared a label for Redbreast Lustau, Redbreast Irish Whiskey finished in Oloroso sherry casks from Bodega Lustau. It does not include an age statement.
A new set of K&L exclusive Scotch labels were cleared this week, including the following from Hunter Laing's Hepburn's Choice and Old & Rare labels: Caol Ila 6, Bowmore 14, Royal Brackla 17, Glen Keith 24, Bunnahabhain 28, Caol Ila 35, and two Speyside blended malts: 24 year old John McCrae and 10 year old William Hepburn. They also cleared two Scotch single grain whiskeys bottled by Sovereign: a 36 year old Girvan and a 42 year old Carsebridge.
I'm a big Miles Davis fan so I was a little taken aback my this label for Kind of Blue Blended Scotch which was apparently "inspired by the legacy" of Miles. Is a generic blended Scotch really the best we could do to honor one of America's greatest artists?
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.
