How can I wrap a LABEL on this bottle of a very low "opacity", a normal glass "IOR", and a low "blur". Can I do it on a "custom" CURVE?

GOOD, I'M SATISFIED

Mistake. Always good service

You can use Label object or decals, depending on the label shape you need. Another option is to create another Lathe object for the label and align it to the bottle.

I would also switch to raytracing preview for this scene to see the bottles better.

Vitaly,

Can I fake a liquid by putting a custom shape "curve" inside the bottle and make it transparent-ish? Is that how you would do it? 

I love pushing this software. I've used it for years and the improvements you keep adding are awesome. Thank you so much.

Oh, and yes, LABEL object works amazing. 

How do I SWITCH to Raytracing preview?

Yes, you can put something inside and make it liquid. See here for more details on translucent mediums: https://boxshot.com/boxshot/tutorials/advanced/glass/

You can switch preview modes using View->Drivers menu.

OK found it
