    I am looking forward to picking up and trying my bottle of cologne, probably tomorrow!

    Curious to hear what you think of the brandy finished Beam. Have you tried it before? Doesn't seem to be exactly flying off the shelves.

    It's not just brandy finished, though, correct? It's actually a brandy/bourbon blend... at least that's how I'm interpreting the descriptions.

    I believe that to be the case. I didn't particularly enjoy the first pour out of my bottle but the second pour onwards grew on me quite well.

    I second Jeffery's recommendation of the SB Blend. I love OWA neat, but love it even more in the SB Blend

    From what I've read, you are correct. The label on the bottle says, Bourbon Whiskey Finished With: Rare Spanish Brandy, but it's not a "finish" like what we see in other rebarrelled for finishing whiskies. Rather, the brandy is mixed in to some proportion.

    Answering Bruce's question, I have had a couple of small pours today, and I have to say that I quite like it. Gorgeous nose. Slightly sweet over the tongue. Not as thick as I would have thought, though. Above average finish. At $36, it's worth a repurchase for me.

    Maybe they also added that secret stuff that makes you want more.

    I picked up the last 2 OWA single barrel store selection bottles from my local Liquor Barn. The regular OWA offering is pretty much my favorite bourbon, and this single barrel selection is even better!
