    I just received my first bottle via trade, and the cap is plain black, no "bourbon county" is this right?

    Never seen a "bourbon county" cap. Only blank and some with Goose heads.

    i know newer vintages of bcbs have the "bourbon county" cap, but i think vanilla was too old to have that on the cap, so i think you're fine.

    This is from a regular BCBS. Don't know what the Vanilla had.

  8. Interesting post. You think it might be a knock off? What's your trading partner think?

    BCBVS, BCBCS 2010, and older BCBS did not have the logo on the cap...

  10. Might as well say it....send it to me and I will do a full inspection of the cap and contents to confirm it is legit ;)

    Vanilla shouldn't have a Bourbon County cap.

    It's legit. I bought seven of them.
     
  13. ISO BCBVS, CCB goods FT. Just putting that out there. Id really like to get a trade going for one of these;)
     
  14. Just to add one more, just checked mine, and it's plain black.
