New Whiskey Labels: Lots of Scotch

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

Pernod Ricard cleared a label for a 50 year old Glenlivet.  Distilled in 1964, it is a cask strength release entitled "The Winchester Collection."

Highland Park cleared the label for Odin, a 16 year old whiskey that is the latest in its Norse God themed Valhalla series.

Glenmorangie cleared a label for its latest Private Edition release.  Tusail is made using Maris Otter barley.

Edrington cleared a new series of Glenturret distillery bottlings, including a 10 year old, a 25 year old, and a 27 year old.

Gordon & MacPhail cleared a label for a 34 year old Port Ellen as part of their Rare Old series of bottlings.

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.

Concerning the Glenmorangie, here is an interesting tidbit from Wikipedia: "Maris Otter is today acknowledged across the brewing world as the finest-quality malt available and probably the only variety grown to achieve exactly what brewers require." I will be most interested to try this. Thanks Sku!

I will be interested to add the Glenmorangie tomy collection. Thats a pretty good line. (Companta- being an exception)
