    Knob Creek SB label change

    I was shopping earlier and noticed that Knob Creek SB has changed to a paper label. It's light brown. I think the information is the same as before.

    Re: Knob Creek SB label change

    I noticed this as well, and it reminded me that I received an e-mail a while back announcing that they are reintroducing the infamous cork back into the KC bottles:

    We wanted you to know first that we’ve heard you loud and clear, and we’re bringing back the classic cork top. You’ll be able to find it across the entire Knob Creek® family very soon.
    It appears that they're just developing consistency across the brand. Thankfully one feature they're keeping consistent is that nine-year age statement.

    Probably the only age stated bourbon around here.

    Agreed. Both versions hit the spot for price, age and proof... glad to hear about the paper label. Always thought it was odd that the premium version had a less impressive bottle.

    Not that I really want MORE attention drawn to KC....

    Re: Knob Creek SB label change

    I just recently bought this bottle, which has the light brown paper label, AS, and a screw top. Is this a transitional bottling?

    the stash i bought back in may/june had the clear label and a screw top.

    I think the older label was better. the one above looks kinda cheap, in my opinion. kind of like a poor '50's looking attemp

    Regardless of the label, the whisky is REALLY good, much better than the standard KC bottling.

    it is damn good, especially for the price.

    I keep going back and forth between this and Bookers as my 2nd favorites. KCSB does have a fuller profile, to me, than does Bookers. The proof is pretty close, so its just 1.5-2 years and selection that differentiate it.

    Ive seen KCSB on sale as cheap as $32. Where else is one going to find a practically barrel proof 9yo bourbon for mid $30's?

    Right on, fox. My bottle was exactly $34 after tax-- a tremendous value for 120 proof.
