    Does anyone know where Pepper is sold today? Japan as usual, or?

    I have never seen it in Europe.

    A lukewarm review appears in Murray´s bourbon book. That is my only relation to this elusive brand.
    Delighted to see you if you can find me!

    I'm not sure where all it goes, but there seems to be a distributor in Bosnia that carries it.

    Well, there you go. Could never have guessed that.

    I have to specify that when I´m talking about Europe, I usually mean Western Europe. I have never been to Bosnia and, to be quite honest, I´m not sure if I want to.

    I'm guessing that it's not bottled in the States, as it says bottled in bond on the label, yet is 43% alcohol.

    Re: I.W. Harper

    Did a bit more searching. It seems this brand is targeted in a small area. I turned up Moldova, Czech Republic, Hungary and Estonia.

    One restaurant menu had it priced at less than half of Jim Beam

    Unhappy Re: I.W. Harper

    I have also been searching for I W Harper. Alas, to no positive end. I went to the website, http://www.diageo.com/en-row/OurBrands/AllourbrandsA-Z/ , http://www.diageo.com/en-row/AboutDiageo/ and http://www.diageo.com/en-row/AboutDiageo/OurHistory/ , and found nothing in the history of Diageo PLC to indicate that they presently owned or had ever owned or distributed I W Harper. I guess we have to keep searching for this apparent Holy Grail of bourbons.

    A Google search yields 321,000 hits. A few might actually be useful. Good luck.
