If so did you have any problems or was it a good experience? Are there any problems with customs ect.? The reason I ask is that I am about to place an order and I want to make sure that the package gets to me in a safe and timely manner…I know that the shipping cost are a bit high, but I am willing to pay if it will actually get to me.

They use a courier service, but do not remember which one.

US Customs in some states (Texas for one?) will confiscate alcohol. Perhaps WE is marking packages some other way, eg. Collectors Malt, glassware etc.

I am not too familiar with USA duties and fees (I live in Canada but shipping the bottle to my brother in Boston) and was wondering if anyone knows what they are and what are the chances of me having to pay them?
