    Re: Jim Beam Signature Craft 12 Year and Rare Spanish Brandy

    I agree lemon can "ruin" a drink and it is a powerful flavor. This is why I think the old books advise to twist some of the oil from the skin on the rind and leave it at that.

    I cut my lemon slices (for any drink) very thin and use just a portion of that, helf or less of the wheel. Works well because also, the drink doesn't last long.

    Yes Foureyed. The Spanish Brandy one is finished in brandy casks so that could be why there's no "straight" designation But the Signature Craft is not. That's the one I'm talking about. Haven't tried the Spanish Brandy one yet.

    Don't think it's finished in brandy casks; rather, they just vat it with some brandy prior to bottling.

    Yes High, you're right. Guess I didn't pay close enough attention to the Spanish Brandy version as it didn't really interest me so much as the standard one.

    I tried a few pours of the Spanish brandy version. I have liked this ok tonight. The difference is I drank this first before anything else. I have also had a period a while ago where I drank exclusively brandies. So, it was good to taste some of it in this.

    Re: Jim Beam Signature Craft 12 Year and Rare Spanish Brandy

    I bought the JB 12 year on sale at Spec's for $32.99. I really, really like it. The front side reminds me of Baker's (which I like as well)..kind of a nutty candy bar taste with a hint of vanilla. The finish has quite a bit of cinnamon and just a brief hint of mint. It is a bit watery at 43% ABV, but all in all it is one of my new standard pours.

    I actually just saw a bunch of both types on the shelf of the store I was just at. If you are looking for them, pm me.
