Excerpt: The taste has good spicy touches of cinnamon and chili powder with fruity notes of red apples, peaches, vanilla, and brown sugar in good balance. The finish is slightly dry with lingering fruity notes and soft spices. Very nice.

Sweet and winey, maple, vanilla, red fruits, cinnamon
Thin mouth feel but not surprised for the low proof. Sweet and unoffensive, loaded with molasses, cinnamon, fruity jam, vanilla. I fail to taste the "rarity" of the brandy but I do get a good bit of brandy notes.
Short to medium and no heat whatsoever. Fruity and sweet but balanced with some nice woody maple notes. Never thought Id say this of a young Beam product but I actually enjoy this
Overall, this is a decent product for the price and one I quite enjoy as winter is approaching. Its great for that time you dont need a bruiser dram but want something that wont give you flashbacks to college dorms at a great price. I wont embellish it and say its a very good, or even great whiskey but its quite a bit better than I expected from it and I enjoy sitting down to a dram of this to warm up for the evening or to just sip on while Im doing housework or whatnot. For this reason, Im giving this a 5. Nothing to be ashamed of in the slightest. Id honestly probably take this over Rare Breed (my last review before this)
