    You guys really should stop teasing me with all of these ideas, it just gets my imagination going on really making it happen . It does sound great though....

    Getting there ain't the problem! Now, getting back could be a concern. Or even wanting to come back...

    It has since occurred to me that after we saw the first liquor store next to our gas station stop, it would take us weeks to get there, if we ever arrived at all.

    It's the journey, not the destination.

    In the case of Johnny's rye and single malt bunker the destination has a certain appeal as well!

    Wear your GoPro cameras as you hunt... There's at least four episodes worth of the "Whiskey Hunters" reality TV show in this trip:

    - Ep1: Pilot / Midwest kickoff
    - Ep2: Hunting the Prairie Lands
    - Ep3: Stalking prey in the Great Basin
    - Ep4: Pacific Northwest / season finale

    Edit:

    - Ep5: Throwing caution to the wind... We're just going to keep on going and take our hunt to the Land of the Rising Sun

    Just picked up a bottle of Rittenhouse Rye DSP-354 last night, only one of about 12 bottles of the shelf, the rest were DSP-1. Haven't had either yet but saw Rittenhouse on the shelf yesterday afternoon, was curious, and came back here to read about it. Figured I'd go for the 354 since it was there.

    I've been working on episode 5 for the last week or so, but Japan is not an easy place hunt! Many (most?) stores are unlisted and few carry more than the typical JD and JB. With that said, I've found some dusties, but none that I felt were worth the effort to get back to the US (things like 1990's EWSBs, tax stamped IW Harper 80, and tax stamped AA).

    To stay on topic, I find did a lone bottle of Willett 24 year old 110 proof rye in a small Japanese city near my friend's house.
