    The bourbon selection in Norway is nothing to brag about! Norway is truly a bourbon wasteland!
    The ones available are Jim Beam white, Jim Beam black, Four Roses, Four Roses SB, John Lee, Maker's Mark, Old Bardstown 10yo, Johnny Drum 12yo, Kentucky Vintage, Rowan's Creek, Pure Kentucky and Noah's Mill.
    On the Tennessee side we have Jack Daniel's, Gentleman Jack, Jack Daniel's SB. That's all folks !!!
    My favorites among these are Jim Beam Black, Four Roses SB, Maker's Mark and Pure Kentucky.
    Some years ago we also had Evan Williams, Rebel Yell, Knob Creek, Baker's and Basil Hayden, but they have all disappeared from the shelves.
    But lucky for me, Denmark is not too far away and there they have a great selection of bourbon. So I am in Denmark once or twice a year and then I really fill up my bunker !!!

    At a party once a friend from Norway, Nils Vitso brought some aquavit and passed it around, no one liked it.
    Someone put a bottle of Wild Turkey in his hands and he did not want to try it but buckled under and took a swig.
    He started to hand the bottle back immediatly and you could see him bracing for the worse, but then a smile came across his face and he looked at the label of the Turkey and said, "No more aquavit for me."

    Great story ! If more Norwegians could get the chance to try bourbon, it would be far more popular here.
