    I can concur with that. The label on the back is modern type.

    This is the stuff at a store near me. Is this the newer font you're referring to?

    That matches mine. You may ask the manager when it came in.

    How do we know it's a wheater? Has this info come from an official source, or is it speculation?
    One whiskey for every ghost.

    I opened it and tasted it, most definitely a wheater. Don't take my word for it. Buy a bottle and try it yourself.

    I emailed KBD in the fall about it and Drew replied that is is a wheater. I think he said since '08-'09ish, but it would vary at the retail level depending on how fast it moves.

    Wow, so different regions could get a rye-Bourbon versus wheat? If that's true then KBD is a bit more messed up than I thought.

    Although...it is tasty bourbon O_O

    Read the post. It's not a regional thing, but more of a time thing. If a region has not picked any up for about 4 years, then it would still be the rye-recipe version.

    Ah! Well, for Texas I can assure you I have never seen VB in the Dallas area until Spec's open 5 months ago.
