These are on the Michigan list but I have yet to see any on store shelves.

Dolph: you can't lose (really)! Just try it in the glass first, say 3:1 Brandy to 12.
I think I got it figured out: 2 parts Brandy, 1 part 12 year and 8 parts Coke - simply amazing!
I've found as I slowly work my way through the Signature, the more I like it. Just one thing though. As a Bourbon nerd I tend to parse labels and can't help but notice that Beam does not specify that this is a "straight" bourbon. Can't help but wonder why they would leave that out, especially if it is aged 12 years. Sure hope they aren't adding anything to it.
im guessing that aging it in sherry casks imparts some sherry to it, making it not a straight bourbon technically
That whiskey and Coke sounds good. Someone should give it a name.
How about the MDA? Short for May-December-in-Atlanta. Get it?
Editing to say I tried it with Maker's, EC 12 (since I don't have the others), and Coke, in the proportions mentioned. I added a lemon slice.
Excellent and the dose of older bourbon does really improve it but it's still fresh and lively.
