New Whiskey Labels: Finished Jefferson's and a New Bunnahabhain

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

Bunnahabhain cleared a new label for Ceobanach, a ten year old, heavily peated malt.

New labels cleared for Jefferson's Reserve rum cask finished and Cabernet Sauvignon cask finished.  

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.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but Jefferson's shouldn't be able to call these expressions "very old Kentucky STRAIGHT bourbon whiskey, very small batch" if it has been aged/finished in anything other than oak??

Based on what they have done in the past, you would think it should be "Straight Bourbon finished in rum casks," which is similar to what they have approved for other finished bourbons like Angel's Envy, but maybe the TTB thought the sticker was prominent enough to make it clear what it was.

Yeah that is probably correct. For some reason I didn't think Angel's Envy has the straight distinction on their bottles.
