I'm sitting here at 1:35 with a glass of Overholt (although my diet forbids it!) and can't help but think when I read some posts here that you bourbonhunters are very fortunate. Sweden, not allowing private shops, must be the country the bourbongods forgot.

Here is what we can get, and this is ALL that is available: (approximate/equivalent prices in parantheses)

Blanton's Gold ($ 120)
Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon ($ 60)
Buffalo Trace ($ 50)
Evan Williams Single Barrel 1994 ($ 85)
Four Roses Bourbon ($ 25)
Four Roses Bourbon 35 ml ($ 18)
Jack Daniel's ($ 35)
Jack Daniel's 350 ml ($ 23)
Jim Beam Bourbon ($ 33)
Jim Beam Bourbon35 ml ($ 20)
Jim Beam Black 8 Years ($ 36)
McCarthy's Oregon Single Malt Whiskey ($ 90)
Old Potrero Single Malt Straight Rye Whiskey ($ 90)
Rittenhouse Straight Rye ($ 35)
Seagram's Seven Crown Blended Whiskey ($ 32)
Seagram's Seven Crown Blended Whiskey 35 ml ($ 21)
Wild Turkey Straight Rye Whiskey ($ 49)
WL Weller 12 Years ($ 53)


Appauling, isn't it? So, fellow American drinkers, I hope this will give you a sense of perspective.

Just thinking about this gives me the blues. A perfect opportunity to "bourbonize" myself into oblivion, eh?

Cheers!
