    $40 for a 12yr at 86, or $25 for a 12yr at 94? Thank you, Heaven Hill!

    Very true, but the finish does make it somewhat unique at least. How much so, well that's up to your wallet I reckon.

    100% Agreed.

    Or to keep it in the family --- I'll take $25 for 100 proof KC at 9yrs old.

    I hear ya, man. I'll end up buying a bottle, and probably end up regretting it as I do with most Beam products. But I'll still try it.

    The Distiller's Masterpiece was 20 years when bottled IIRC, i.e., after the port cask or other finishing it got. With the 12 year, I'd have though the brandy wasn't necessary but it can't hurt it. This is a must buy IMO.

    The Distiller's Masterpiece was released as both an 18yr Cognac finish and a 20yr. Port finish.It may be hard to believe but I have still seen quite a few gracing shelves from time to time,at over $250 mind you they may soon settle into the dust.BTW sorry for the thread drift.

    Word.

    Apparently some who got samples didn't get brandy finished ones or weren't told they were brandy finished, or something.

    Fred Minnick, for one:

    Also, whoever runs Beam's Twitter account seemed surprised by this information leaking out, and told me they didn't have information on price yet, even though Fred and The BR clearly had the MSRP.

    12 year old watered down brandy finished Grand Dad. I may as well drink Canadian at half the price.

    Is it the OGD mashbill? If so, that could be very interesting brandy-finished. I was assuming it was the regular Beam mashbill.
