    Headed to France any bourbon suggestions?

    Spending 10 days in France split between Paris and Brittany, have been doing a bit of research and came across Maison du whisky. Other than that is there any bourbon to be had across the pond? The Blanton's barrel strength is on my list as are any age stated Wild Turkeys.

    Yep, gotta get an 8yo 101 WT and any WT over there.
    In France you'll see some names you never heard of before, a lot of long aged stuff that Heaven Hill bottles for export only that's not great (woody) but if you can get it cheap why not get one or two.

    Sounds like a great trip. The store you mentioned is well known for both it's selections and it's prices but would certainly be on my list of places to visit.

    My son-in-law tells of being the guest of some people in France who made him an excellent meal, including some exceptional wine. After dinner, his host offered him a special treat. You have heard, perhaps, of Jaque Danielles?
    Sometimes European prices make even ordinary stuff a "special treat."
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    When I'm in Europe, I like to drink Four Roses, the standard yellow label expression. It's readily available and comfortably priced, and superior to Jim and Jack.

    Don't know if it's export only to the US, but if you see Bastille, it is to be avoided.

    Just so you know, Silver Select is exactly the same as the single barrel sold at retail. But you're right about it being good.
