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

    Four different labels for four different types of whiskey. Same proof because it is a placeholder.

    What is a placeholder?

    The proof on an approved label can change (see: Willett, FR, etc) but they have to put something there. So they put 62.5% (barreling proof) to hold the place for the proof of each individual barrel. Same with the barrel number. Lots of things provide a barrel number but they're not getting each separate barrel number approved.

    The document detailing allowable changes to approved COLA labels can be found here:

    http://www.ttb.gov/labeling/allowable_revisions.shtml

    All kinds of things can be changed: artwork, fonts and type size (though mandatory standards have to be upheld), content statement, age, proof.

    Looks like Sazerac wants to capitalize on the success of George T. Stagg. Say hello to Stagg Jr:

    Good catch! That is intriguing. Wonder what the "Jr." implies, beyond the reduction in proof. I look forward to hearing more about this one.

    It appears to be barrel proof, but as Trey pointed out, the label places a 10 year ceiling for the age.

    Is nine years "nearly" a decade? Eight? A blend of several different ages?

    They want to give them selves wiggle room of course and I guess it is good it will have a decent age range on it, depending on the retail price of course, but it would be nice if it said it was specifically at least ten years old. Or nine. Or whatever rather than the somewhat vague "nearly a decade".

    On a side note it lists DSP-CA-63 and DSP -MD-11, both of which are presumably Sazerac owned Barton Brands of California and Maryland respectively (MAJESTIC DISTILLING CO., INC. in the case of Maryland).

    Are these most likely bottling locations? Or is this just a full list of all Sazerac owned distilleries that show up on any Sazerac COLA filings?

    This page (from the Czech Republic of all places) suggest that while Majestic Distilling may have once been the source of Maryland Rye it is now mostly a bottler and "rectifier" so perhaps I have answered my own question...

    Actually, the term 'nearly a decade' is a limitation applied only to the youngest whiskys in the melding of the barrels in a particular bottling run.

    What I see is uncut, unfiltered, fully aged whisky which is exactly what I want to see more of in the market.
