New Whiskey Labels: Old Scotch, Medley Bourbon and More


This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:

Duncan Taylor cleared labels for a bunch of very old whiskeys, including 1983 Port Ellen, 1975 Banff, 1975 Glen Mhor, 1973 Teaninich, 1972 Caperdonich, 1970 Glen Grant, 1968 Strathisla, 1968 Macduff, 1968 Glenrothes and a 1978 Interleven single grain, 

California bottler Frank-Lin cleared two new labels in the Medley line of Kentucky bourbons: Charles Medley Master Distiller Diamond Collection and Medley Family Private Reserve.

A label cleared for a new Scotch whiskey from French blender Michel Couvreur: Candid.

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.

Always like seeing a barrel proof bourbon come on line.
Not sure why the Medley label downplays it so much, in favor, rather, of the 'Family Reserve" angle

Yeah, it sort of buries the lede.

It will not be widely available - as I understand it, these are single barrels selected by his family and gifted to him.
