    At least according to the TESS database, Diageo just let the trademark die. Seems odd to me. Whoever picked up on that was smart to do so.

    Smarter than me.
    Corsair is the producer according to TTB applications.

    They have the DBA as well. My question is whether or not this is Corsair's product or something they're just bottling for someone else?

    If it's all Corsair my initial reaction is disappointment, as I had thought better of them. The claims on the label are a load of crap. Something I'd expect of, say, Diageo, and not one of the more respected micros. This is at least as phony as the current Michter's.

    The label on the bottle says pot still whiskey, or something to that effect, so I would assume they made it, or at least didn't source it from the big boys (unless they sourced from Woodford).

    The label says a lot of things.

    Corsair had several barrels put up for them last spring when i was in Bowling Green. I would assume that is the whiskey they are using in the label. It was not bad for small barrel whiskey.

    Who's "them"? If Corsair is doing it for someone else? Who?

    The people who own the James E Pepper label now. They (or maybe a single person, I don't remember) are based in the Washington D.C. area.

    Re: James E Pepper?

    I've been exchanging tweets with @corsairartisan (no longer Ben Kickert, I'm assuming)

    Me: Can you tell us anything about this new James E. Pepper bourbon?
    Corsair: there is nothing new about it. In fact it is the oldest bourbon receipe
    Me: Let me be a bit more specific, is this one of your brands or are you making it for somebody else?
    Corsair: it is a contracted product, unfortunately it is only available in D.C
    Not exactly new info, but some confirmation at least.
