I have a friend who is travelling to Paris in about three weeks. To my knowledge, he is leaving the US at Dulles. I can certainly request one, possibly two, export only bourbons for him to bag for me during his travels. I will probably give him a list of five to ten bourbons ranked in terms of desirability with the request to bring back one to two bottles from the list.

I was hoping that those of you with much more export only bourbon knowledge and international travel experience might help me with my requests. If you are so inclined, what would your list look like? Are there any bourbons for which you would say, "If you find this, just get two of those and forget the rest of the list!"?

Also, other than DFS, are there any places you would recommend that he look?
