    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.

    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...

    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.
