    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.
    My cologne is too woody and it wasn't even aged in a barrel.

    If I never learn anything else from visiting this board, and I learn something new almost daily, is that as much as I like WL12 and OWA, I like them both better together.

    Nice! Will have to watch for those. Have a set from last year that I really like.

    I found mine at Crown but I have seen them at a few smaller stores.

    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.
    Yes, it is a "blend" of some proportion of bourbon and a small amount of brandy rather than a more typical whiskey that has been finished in a brandy barrel.

    Joe, thanks for your notes! I find it hard to pick out the brandy influence except for the bit of sweetness you note although it is more obvious when compared with the regular Beam Signature Craft 12yo. But definitely a little on the thin side.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Last years gift set glasses are my favorite drinking glasses. This years are nice but more like cocktail glasses with the wider mouth.

    Yup. I love those FR rocks glasses from last year. I must have bought about 6 of those gift packs, as it was a terrific barrel also, the glasses are great, and the set was $29.99. Too good to pass up. This year's looks nice, but different glasses and now $35.99. I am well stocked, so a pass for me.
