    Errors on COLA's going up?

    Has the quality of COLA submissions always been so full of errors, or are they increasing due to the larger numbers of small distilleries?

    Like this "Tennessee Crown Club" with a label stating "Texas Crown Club"
    https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonlin...13081001000486

    Or like this one (one of several) from Koval stating one grain on the front label and another on the back:
    https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonlin...13047001000027

    SKU had a great example from Zachory Boone where they claim a bourbon made from barley and malt mash:

    It just goes on and on. Nevermind the TTB employee just signs off without even a cursory look, the distillers dont seem to give a flip either.

    The real concern is collecting taxes.

    Whoever is approving those labels is very likely not a whiskey geek

    uses special "chared" barrels. At least run the descriptions by a spell-checker.

    I just dont get how this slips through the submitter. I can see ttb not caring on this one, but it just jumps out as no attention to detail.

    I'm just waiting for the COLA app that stresses special Chickapin Oak barrels.

    I believe these fools deserve their label that reads "chared" oak.

    Sometimes I think they're just words to take up space on the label.
