    I would definitely add Suntory Hibiki (my favorite blend) and the 18 year single malt.

    Nantucket, you can start another booze thread anytime. Day or night. Please.

    Rhum Barbancourt (8 yrs)
    Havana Club (from Cuba-3 yrs)
    Makers Mark
    Drambuie
    J&B
    Beefeater
    Flor de Cana (4 yrs)
    Finlandia
    Gusano Rojo
    Triple Sec
    Bailey's
    Amarula
    Johnny Black

    We don't get much single-malt scotch down here in CR and what I do bring down with me seems to run out quick. The great thing about going up to the US every few months is the duty-free shops @ the airports here. I think the Drambuie set me back $12.

    Christ, Huntsman, it looks like you'll never be a friend of Bill W.

    But you can be a friend of mine.

    Raki is akin to grappa, actually. Like zivania, the Cypriot version. All trhee taste sort of different but made in a similar fashion. Edit: Oops, managed to omit answering your question [​IMG]. Ouzo is still called as such, as it is a different drink. Btw, I recommend Plomari ouzo if you manage to come across it, I had it for the first time in August when I was home last. Rather inexpensive but wonderfully smooth, the real stuff from Lesvos. Much better than the Metaxas rubbish.

    Just so you all know, you're helping me plan out my post-military world tour with this thread...I see NR in Tokyo, Stelios in Arizona, and Huntsman in the most finely outfitted dormroom in America. Vive la booze!
