Seasonal Bourbon Bottles/gift sets

Thought I would start a thread about what is out there as far as unique bottles or gift sets, especially with  the holidays  approaching.

I was wondering if anyone had tried "Tom Turkey Bourbon". I saw this in the liquor store for I think $80 and was considering getting a bottle for Thanksgiving, just because the bottle is so nice. I was wondering if anyone here had any information on the bourbon itself, as I have been searching and can't seem to find who actually makes the bourbon. If there is something drinkable on the inside, might be worth it to me as a festive conversation piece.

Some guys were talkin about it yesterday… said it was 4 year but not sure who makes it. 
 

Not really seasonal but i saw a four roses box with a mold to make a rose shaped ice cube yesterday.

Probably paying a good bit for the bottle. If the contents suck dump it out and refill with some WT 101!

Was it Yellow label or SB?

I get that I am paying for the bottle, but would be much more likely to buy it if the juice inside is palatable.

FWIW, I ran across this on a reddit thread where they claimed that this was a sourced bourbon from MGP.

I seen no such turkey decanter since my local deli sold off their collection when they sold the business back in 1979.

 

BUT, RE: the TOPIC - I did pop for a Maker's LE, Wood Finishing Series set of two 375s in a nice, heavy cardboard box.  MM46 picked by Bill Samuels "Son of the Founders" which is a Cask Strength 110.3 proof (standard stave profile #46) and a Maker's "Private Selection" picked by Rob Samuels "Grandson of the Founders" which is a 110 proof  with a stave profile of 5 baked American oak, 0 French, 1 Maker's 46 (which I think is a used French oak), 0 roasted French mocha, and 4 Toasted French spice.

 

I have no faint idea what all that stave stuff is about (other than advertising) in spite of several years of reading MM labels and webpages describing it, but I still think these taste pretty good.  Indeed, I've yet to taste an over-proof MM that I DIDN'T like - even with ice or out of the fridge in Summer.

Found this set online at my local FWGS. Went in and they didn’t have it out. Asked the fella at the register about it and he ran to the back to grab it. Same price as the standard WR bottle but with a nice crystal glass made by Glencairn (so says the packaging). 
 

Seeing as I’ve been on a bit of a WR kick the last couple of weeks, it was a no-brainer.
