    It looks like they have them for bourbon, rye, wheat, and corn:

    These all look mightily like bottles that HH will charge over $100 for and sell only in their gift shop.

    I'd say that the "hand selected for" section points toward this not being a gift shop exclusive. And the paper label points toward it being less expensive than PHC. I'm betting $50 range, to compete with the FR barrel proof selections.

    So, if you're right, they would basically be going in to the same market that Willet uses them for.

    I think somewhere earlier in the thread (I am too lazy to look!) someone suggested it might be for barrel selected bottlings by a store, restaurant or perhaps an individual or group. Seems like a reasonable possibility.

    Yeah, pretty much. Although thinking it over I'm realizing that HH has been known to use paper labels on some pretty pricey bottles... Still, I'm standing by my guess, which is exactly that - just a guess based on looking at the label and knowing what is out there competing with this potential release.

    People who know more than I do say that it's a bad assumption that all/most Willetts are HH, but even if they are, competing with their own juice in someone else's bottle is something HH does a lot of.

    It's strange for sure. Each of the labels has a barrel number on it and I can't imagine making up a label for a one-barrel offering. That's why I'm guessing the label is designed to leave the quasi-handwritten portions blank for filling in at will. Also, when we mixed two barrels for a duel barrel EC12 selection back in April we had to get special permission as they supposedly had not done a dual barrel before and.. while we loved it at barrel proof, we had to get it at the stock 94 proof because that's what the EC12 label had on it. (It's good .. but not as good as at barrel proof). Having labels that can be filled out would give them more leeway in barrel selection requests. And the other "hint" that makes me think this way is the way they simply had put tape labels on the barrel proof EC12 they offered in the gift shop only. That tape label states: "barrel proof".
    But .. why four different labels? why all at 62.5% ABV? ..
    The barrel number on the COLA's just makes no sense. A one-off label?
