New Whiskey Labels: Diageo Special Releases and More
This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:
This week Diageo cleared labels for its 2016 special releases. They include Brora 38, Port Ellen 37, Auchroisk 25, Caol Ila 15 Unpeated and Lagavulin 12.
A new set of Douglas Laing private barrel Scotch for K&L cleared this week. They include Arran 19, Auchentoshan 18, Bunnahabhain 25, Glenturret 28 and two single grain whiskeys, Garnheath 42 and Invergordon 50.
Here's an interesting new bourbon from Rock Town Distillery in Little Rock, Arkansas. It's a bourbon made from a mash of 61% corn, 30% sorghum and 9% barley. I've seen sorghum whiskeys before, but I don't think I've ever seen a bourbon with sorghum as the flavor grain.
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.
