I've had two bottles of JTS Brown. The first I bought a few months ago:

UPC 96749 21130
Distilled by J.T.S. Brown's Son Company reg Dist 31 of KY
Bottled by J.T.S. Brown's Son Company Bardstown Kentucky D.S.P. KY 31
The neck is gold with diagonal red cursive writing Distilled and Bottled in over black letter printed KENTUCKY.

The label on the back had all the distilled and bottled data and:

Distilled and bottled in Kentucky. The heart of the Bourbon country. Famous for generations for fine Bourbon. Made from a time honored formula by master craftsmen and from the finest ingredients obtainable. Stored under ideal conditions in new properly seasoned charred white oak barrels

For an $11 bottle of Bourbon, this was fantastic. So when it ran out last night I went for a replacement. It is labeled slightly differently:

UPC 96749 53137
Distilled by Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc. D.S.P. Ky 31
Bottled by J.T.S. Brown's Son Company Bardstown Kentucky D.S.P. KY 31
The neck band is red with J.T.S. Brown in White letters over a white 100 in a black circle over Bottled in Bond in white over UNDER U.S. GOVERNMENT SUPERVISION over a gold ring with black 100 PROOF.

The label on the back had all the distilled and bottled data and the Surgeon General's warning. No prosaic discriptions.

I will post impressions when I try it but are these the same or different (the actual whisky)?? From the glass I would guess the first one was bottled in 03 and the second one in 04. I sure hope the second is as good as the first one was.

Thanks for any insight.
