    WT 17. Since I am a big fan of WT and my wallet havenít permitted me to try this one I would definitively take my chance as quick as possible when itís offered free!

    Christian,

    No itís not available here. Only chance I have had to bay it was from a Japanese eBay dealer that offered it for around 550 USD. My wallet was far to thin for that price.

    And never has been. Let us once and for all dispel the notion that Europe is some sort of Bourbon heaven.

    The only reason why a lot of exotic stuff end up here is because of enterprising specialist shop owners who import the stuff, presumably from Japan.

    The WT 17yo was, for a short while, available from The Whisky Exchange some 3 years ago for at least half the price it seems to go for now. It was very good but not my favourite WT.

    The exception to this rule is the little known east European country, Molvania, which has as amazing selection of Bourbon available. Even some that hasnīt been officially released anywhere else. The Buffalo Trace experimental collection, for instance, has been available there for many years.

    Lennart,

    I was previously unaware of the country of Molvania. I have difficulty with the post-colonial names of countries, to say nothing of the post-Soviet names and realignments. Thank you so much for helping me expand my knowledge of other lands and cultures.

    By the merest chance, only minutes ago I heard a rumor that Willie Nelson will be doing a Dental-Aid concert on behalf of the Molvanian people.

    Whether or not the concert comes to pass I hope each of us in this group can include a token donation to that worthy cause when we send in our orders for the Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection.



    Yours truly,

    I ordered some "Old Shepherd" from a liquor store there once -- but the goatskin was punctured en route, the whiskey curdled, and all I got was soused!

    Molvania is on the up!

    I went there 3 years ago and had a wonderful time beating peasants and watching the public hangings.

    I'd really recommend it as a family holiday destination, but hurry, as tourism may well spoil it!

    I guess good whiskey really does tickle my pickle!

    Why? My dentist is Molvanian, and she tells me I have great teeth. So good, in fact, that I have no need to floss, brush or use mouthwash.

    Willieīs concert will go ahead as scheduled but for those planning to attend with grabbing some rare Bourbon back to the US as an ulterior motive, I strongly advise you to refrain.

    Taking hard liquor out of Molvania is strictly outlawed and the authorities clamps down hard on any offenders.

    I speak from personal experience. The other month I tried to smuggle out a bottle of the woefully rare Benjamin Pritchardīs quadruple-barreled Bourbon (only available, of course, in Molvania) and got caught at the airport by two handlebar-moustached fellas with grim apparitions.

    I got off the hook by doing one weeks slave labour for one of the local warlords.
