    Welcome to the forum mate, another bloody queenslander, shouldnt you be drinking rum?!!!
    I have never order from TWE before, do you always get away with not paying duty? I noticed they have Rock Hill Farms and a few others I have been searching for

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking in Australia? - Summer 2013

    Picked up a bottle of Wathens and Rock Hill Farms today. Completely out the blue. Just went to get a cheeseburger from some shops near the gf places and while we waited, thought lets check out the bottle shop. Small and independent type. Walked in and BANG. Both bottles just stand out. Start talking to the owner and he saw I was hesitating to pull the trigger on both, so took 30 off the price. I love days like these.

    So now I am sitting down and sipping on some RHF. I think this one will take a few tries to see if I like it or I love it. But its not bad at all.

    Oh and I have passed on the info to BJW

    I havent ordered from then since about 2012, that year I bought around 20-25 bottles from then in 5 seperate orders and never paid a cent in duty, I was probably just very luck because I have talked to people since then who have been done on their first order of one bottle.
    Back then the range was a little better and the prices were a little better with the exchange rate, I havent really been tempted to order anything recently.

    I placed my first and only order with TWE mid last year. Four bottles all up and I got hit with import duty, alcohol duty, GST etc. From memory it was an additional $130. That was when the exchange rate was still good; in my opinion it would not be worth the effort now unless it's for something you really want that cannot be purchased here.

    I've learnt over the years not to try and keep up...... but it took me many, many weekend long hangovers to reach that conclusion

    Had three functions to attend commencing Thursday. A lot of beer though bourbon limited to WT/JBW with coke. Knackered.

    Picked up a one litre 90 proof Makers at Nicks on Saturday. $65 - good price. Heaven Hill haven't responded to my email regarding proof reduction/price increase of EWB. A bit disappointed to be honest.

    Hawks delivered the goods eh?
