I noted on Master of Malt that they offer 3 cl (1 oz) samples.

They do ship to the US and this may be one way of obtaining some rare tastes at a reasonable price + shipping cost.

I wish this option was offered more widely by US distillers....instead of 1 oz...maybe a smaller bottle - 5 oz etc.

As a test, I fake "ordered" 5 samples...total 38.34...shipping 27.08...total 65.42.
When I added more samples..10 total...$99..the shipping cost was essentially the same...$28 More is definitely better.
Hmm, maybe I will place that order.

So, shipping is not cheap but it does offer a way to "try before buying" and maybe
sampling some hard to find whiskys. I think this would benefit "Whiskey Clubs" especially.

I ordered samples for my birthday last fall. My best friend and I were born on the same day so I ordered a box of 1982 single malts to share for our 30th. Not cheap, but affordable. Master of Malt ships quickly and very securely.

Most samples available on the US market come with a handel . (1.75L) At least thats been my experience.
