I would check that out, but the last time I went to Asia was never.

Yea I have heard that a lot of good bourbon is going there because of paying top dollar. I'm going at bourbon like cigars, if I find it in my travels so be it, If not, oh well. Can find them for 90-100 online all day but to me, not worth double the msrp.

I did find a bottle of eagle rare, Weller 107, and regular Buffalo Trace so I'm happy.

I did, I posted somewhere thanking you for the recommendation. I like it, change of pace, and definitely not too sweet.

So, Tic Tacs are coming with me. Glad to jelp the Team.

I cracked my 107 tonight, and it was most excellent. Been several months since I had the green, I thought it was pretty good, but doesn't compare to the Antique.

Tic Tacs are really useful. Seriously. They contain citric acid, which helps neutralize the palate between cigars. Hector Alfonso (Espinosa cigars) showed us this trick. He carries a baggie of citric acid powder (readily mistakes for cocaine when you start rubbing it on your gums)

Tic tacs do the trick too!

I have 3 bottles of the green to see if it changes my mind That's good to hear, I just found a bottle of that a couple weeks ago. I'll have to open that next.
