New Whiskey Labels: Parker's Heritage, Willett and More

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

Heaven Hill cleared a label for the 2016 Parker's Heritage Collection, a 24 year old bottled in bond bourbon distilled at the old, pre-fire Heaven Hill Distillery. There are two different back labels, likely indicating two batches, one says the bourbon has been aging since Fall 1990 and the other since Spring 1991.

Jefferson's cleared three labels for Cabernet finished Jefferson's bourbons: a Chappellet Cabernet, a Napa Valley Cabernet, and a Pritchard Hill Cabernet. Since Chappellet is a Napa Valley winery that makes Pritchard Hill Cabernet, it looks like this is one bottling that they are not yet sure how to label.

A.D. Rattray's popular budget blend Bank Note looks like it will have peated expression. Like the original, it's five years old.

Last week, Willett cleared a label for an Old Bardstown bourbon which they had distilled in-house. This week, they cleared a BIB version of the bourbon.

Belmont Farms, a Virginia craft distillery, cleared a label for a 25 year old corn whiskey.

And now for the latest in flavored whiskey: Dr. Stoner's Smoky Herb Flavored Whiskey, made from his "special stash."

And if the only thing you like more than Jefferson's Ocean is reality TV tie-ins, Storm Tossed Rye is for you! It's a rye whiskey blend aged on board the fishing boat of Captain Sig from Deadliest Catch.

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.

Yes...'cuz the whiskey market has been clamoring for a fish-scented rye.
