New Whiskey Labels: Jefferson's, Deanston, Tobermory and More

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

Kentucky Artisan Distillers issued two new bourbon labels for the Jefferson's label: Jefferson's Jounrey and Jefferson's New Fill. Both appear to be distilled by Kentucky Artisan.

The importer for Burn Steward whiskies cleared two new labels for distillery bottlings: a 10 year old Deanston with a Pedro Ximenez finish and a 21 year old Tobermory with a Manzanilla finish.

Here's a mysterious one. Pennsylvania bottler Charles Jacquin cleared a label for a new expression of Hochstadter's Rye, a 15 year old straight rye made from 100% rye. Normally, 100% rye mashbill on a sourced whiskey points to Alberta Distillers in Canada, but this label does not state that the whiskey was imported. So, what do we think it is?

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.

Well, we all know that the TTB makes no mistakes! But it seems pretty certain that it is still from Alberta Distillery. When Robert Cooper (who developed St. Germaine, Lock, Stock and Barrel Rye and Hochstadtler Slow & Low) died rather unexpectedly earlier this year (he was 39 and I don't recall ever seeing the cause of death) I wonder if the assets went to or were sold to his fathers company, Charles Jacquin et Cie, who is now releasing what is still available. Just a guess on my part.
