    it was an importer on south coast that i dealt with . he got lots of nice stuff in back then that nobody else did. He used to send me a mixed case every now and then of my fav plus anything i'd not tried. Still got a bottle of George Dickel no12 lying there from all those years ago. its nice too, although sippin' whiskey tbh.. needs air but it can be nice... I used to split the bottle 50/50 in a decanter and leave them for a while to breathe.. made them much better.. I might add the pappy wasnt as expensive as it will be now.. think it was a couple of hundred

    last time i looked pappy was over a grand. but years ago there wasnt so much interest in fancy bourbon, especially over here. none of the supermarkets sold any, bar jd. Guy is dead and shop gone but he was a wine merchant mostly, but dabbled in american spirits as he was keen on it too. said he had had the bottle sitting for years so i got it cheap.. the cork broke off trying to get it out, it had dried out. kinda spoilt the day but it didnt affect the product too much .I had to decant through a fine sieve and clean bottle ot.. then put it back and find a cork that fitted... Still it was fun. never have that kind of enjoyment again
