    Australian retail bourbon range..

    There seems to have been some interest here in the bourbons available in the different markets, so when I was out of town visiting my parents last weekend , I snapped a couple shots of the bottle shop at the family pub. There are more pictures, which I can post later, but this was the range of bourbons sold in the drive-through...It's typical of the range I see in most of the bottle shops locally - the only thing missing is the Small Batch range.

    I've tried the Real McCoy a few times with coke when I'm out at pubs or clubs, but never on its own.
    It's probably slightly less of a bourbon than Jim Beam White.

    Bobby,
    When I left U.D. the Real McCoy was one of their products designed just for the Australia market. I believe it still is. It was not a bourbon then, but instead a mixture of Corn Whiskey, bourbon and neatral spirits. I did not care for it - rather bland in my opinion.

    It's the new Jim Beam and Port that's available in Australia Dave. Why do all the different things have to get released overseas?!

    I notice that it is distributed by Maxxum. They also distribute in Canada. Hmmmm. 700ml is a rather odd bottle size.

    I don't know conversions Dave, but is cl and ml similiar? What I mean is: Is 70cl and 700ml the same thing? If they are, many of the export bottles I have are 70cl (Like all the export Blanton's).

    Yes 70cl is the same as 700ml.
