    Another Age Statement Bites the Dust (And More Recent COLA Findings)

    I don't think too many SBers are going to be devastated by this news, but it appears that Basil Hayden's is soon to be an "artfully aged" bourbon.

    Other COLA findings this week:

    * A pair of new small batch bourbons out of Buffalo Trace.

    * Jefferson's 10 year Rye loses "Produced in Canada" statement.

    * 2012 OFBB "barrelled in 2000"

    Interesting! I had no idea this kind of info was publicly available.

    So, Buffalo Trace doesn't have enough whiskey (allegedly), for some of their existing labels, but they are creating (reviving) new brands?

    And this may be a bit of a n00b question, but why do these companies continue to create new "companies" when they put out a new label? Is it an accounting thing? A way to make it easier to kill or sell off a "brand" later? Or is it simply to mislead consumers? (I'm not being factitious or accusatory... I am genuinely curious as to why they do this.)

    Are the age statements disappearing due to the booming sales, and companies sales goals would come up short without short-cutting a few of the products?

    Thanks for the info.

    What's up with the font on the Black Creek label? Are they going to use it in a new Star Trek movie?

    You beat me to it, Jay. I don't understand why they're introducing a new, age-stated label when they're supposedly dropping them elsewhere due to low stocks. Could it be that this is something they've had in the pipeline for some time and was coming out regardless of what happened elsewhere? Do we know if this is a Sazerac or an Age Intl. brand? Perhaps some more informed members can shed some light here.

    Did anyone notice the Elijah Craig 12 indicates it was 132 proof/66%? I think I would buy one of those.

    Um... Didn't notice. This is wonderful news! I'm sick of boiling off the water on the regular EC12

    Was Basil Hayden ever age-stated? I didn't think it was. There's no change with the Bday Bourbon. Every bottle I've seen is labeled with the year of barreling, the year of bottling and a minimum year age statement.

    So, which age statement bit the dust?

    As for Sazerac releasing bourbons under multiple companies, I would think it would make sense to release bottom, mid, and top shelf whiskies under separate names, just so as not to confuse the vodka drinkers who may be newly discovering how to use their taste buds.
