New Whiskey Labels: Michter's, Chichibu and Kavalan
Michter's cleared a label for a toasted barrel finish bourbon. Per the label, "After full maturation in a hand-selected, charred white oak barrel, we finish our US*1 Bourbon in a new uncharred barrel that has been toasted to our exacting specifications."
A label cleared for Chichibu On the Way. According to the blurb at The Whisky Exchange, this bottling is "a multi-vintage vatting of whisky distilled at various times since they opened in 2008, including some of their oldest, five year old whisky. The whiskies that went in to this started their lives in bourbon casks but have all been finished in mizunara, Japanese oak."
Kavalan, the Taiwanese single malt which was recently released in the US, cleared a label for a peated whiskey.
