In the celebrated series "Reviving unhip subjects" we have now arrived at Barton. To put it simply : does any one know of a place in the U.S. or Canada which does mail order and can send me a bottle of Very Old Barton? (Proof doesnīt matter).

Iīve tried everywhere in Europe and although there are some whiskey-shops with respectable selections of american whiskey I have yet to encounter any one who sells VOB. An e-mail to the Barton home page did me no good either. They never bothered to reply ( I got the impression that the site was aimed at wholesale customers).

From the few postings on the subject I gather that VOB also can be quite hard to track down in the U.S. so I donīt hold out much hope but any info would be much appreciated...

Best wishes,
