I think the 12yo has a delicacy that I can best describe as seductively 'feminine' (by that, I don't mean 'girlie' -- think, rather, of the finest perfume applied so perfectly to a woman that you, standing next to her, are the only person who's aware of the scent). The 13yo, to me -- well, that's just lush and lusty.
But, this certainly isn't the first time I've discovered differences of opinion about a whiskey. We certainly do agree, though, that both are prime pours.

Almost everyone who's had the 12yo Old Time Rye and the FR 13yo prefers the Old Time. And, it was priced $20 vs $30 for the FR 13yo rye. Easy choice.
