    There is nothing wrong with non-distiller producers, so long as the customer understands what he or she is getting. KBD does a lot of bottling for other non-distiller producers but this is one of their own brands. Producers such as KBD are to be commended for making extra-aged bourbons and ryes available when the majors were taking that whiskey and just blending it away. The only reason I tend to avoid them is because profiles tend to be inconsistent, since they have to take what they can get, and because I can usually get something similar at a better price directly from a distiller.

    I think you just perfectly expounded upon my thought, Chuck -- thanks!

    Rowan's Creek 12yo and Noah's Mill 15yo (my first SB.com review!: http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...35&postcount=1) were reasonable buys when age-stated.
    Today, without the ages and with who-knows-what in the bottle, they may as well be another label.

    I enjoyed my Noah's Creek but would have enjoyed it more if it didn't blow it's top in my car on a not so hot day. I think KBD needs better wax. I also have a bottle of Rowan's Creek that cracked it's wax seal sitting on my bar.
    I haven't tried it with any water but may try it next served that way. I know a store that has some 15 year age statents on the label and I'm thinking it's a decent price for 16 year old 114 proof whiskey and should get another.

    I finally got around to getting a bottle of this at a decent price ($44) and didn't notice until I got home that it is now NAS. When did this happen and has anyone compared the new with the 15yo? Mine is Batch# 08-129.

    Specs is the big chain retailer in Houston, probably with about 30 locations. I have been into several and they all recently have a "Manager's Note" below shelf tag on Noah's Mill and Rowan Creek, stating 15 and 12 YO bourbons. I pointed out the fact they were lying but it was wasted on a clueless employee.

    Its been about two years now since I first saw some of the NAS stuff in the Midwest - I was out there working at the time. I am kicking myself for not getting more of the Age Stated of this as well as the others in the collection.
