    SB Blend Label

    Today, in my spare time, I created a label for the famed SB Blend. Feel free to print and glue it to your bottle!

    awesome cept the age statement needs to be of the youngest barrel in the blend
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    Nice ... but unfortunately, while I have no problem with an in-house label stating an average age, we do not know even the minimum age of OWA at this point. But maybe you intend the labels to be used only with dusty OWA. In that case it would be a "minimum" average, I reckon.

    Thanks for the kind words. Although OWA has dropped the age statement, I have not noticed a drop in quality. To honor the concept behind blending these to approximate the stats of Centennial 10 year, I willfully and knowingly ignored the dropping of OWA's age statement.

    That's awesome! Beats the hell out of my handwritten label.

    As for the age, isn't it still part of the W.L. Weller & Sons mission statement to not bottle anything under 7 years old?
    Thought I read that somewhere.

    No. At least some barrels of WSR and OWA are dumped at under 7 years now.
