New Whiskey Labels: Jack, Bowman, Old MGP and More
This week's most interesting new labels from the federal TTB database:
Strong Spirits cleared a label for Redemption Wheated Bourbon, a 4 year old wheater from MGP and two labels for a new Redemption expression: The Ancients, an 18 year old rye and a 36 year old bourbon, both made at MGP back when it was the Seagram's Distillery.
Jack Daniel's cleared a label for a straight rye.
Heaven Hill cleared a label for the fifth edition of William Heavenhill, a 14 year old single barrel bourbon.
A. Smith Bowman cleared a label for Isaac Bowman Pioneer Spirit, a straight bourbon finished in port casks.
Some old Scotch labels cleared this week, including a 50 year old Tamdhu and a 1970 Tullibardine.
We know dropped age statements is a big trend, but did the age statement for Barton's 1792 225th Anniversary release get dropped before it was even released? A label released earlier this month stated it was aged "for a full ten years." This week, the company cleared another label that was almost identical, except that it states it was aged for "nearly a decade."
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.
