Looking for some (rare ?) whiskies, mostly bourbon-like

Postby Cubitus » Thu Mar 25, 2010 11:49 am

Hello,
I'm a new guy from France on this forum, and I'm looking for a couple rare whiskies I discovered thanks to Jim Murray's 2010 Bible, maybe you know where I might find them (online European shop if possible). I don't share Murray's tastes on single malts (dunno why he loves Glenfiddish 18 yrs so much for instance), but I think his tastes in bourbon and rye whiskey are quite accurate, so I'll follow him on those one, especially since I love to discover whiskies from all over the world, the Old Buck from Finland is REALLY the one I'm trying to get my hands on.

From Finland : Old Buck 2nd release, 70.6 %, distilled by Panimoravintola Beer Hunter's
From Germany : Blaue Maus Single Malt 25 Jahre 55 %
From Switzerland : Säntis Malt Swiss Highlanger Edition Dreifaltigkeit 52 %

From Canada : -Alberta Premium 25 years old 40 %
-Danfield's Limited Edition Aged 21 Years 40%
-Wiser's Red Letter 45%

and some American Whiskeys :
-Mc Carthy's Oregon Single Malt Aged 3 years 40%
-Ancient Age 10 years old 43%
-Cougar Bourbon Aged 5 years 37%
-Evan Williams 23 years old 53.5 %
-Parker's Heritage Collection Third Edition 2009 "Golden Anniversary" 50%
-Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Four Grain 46.2%
-Cougar Rye 37%
-Rathskeller Rye 65%
-Rittenhouse Rye Single Barrel 23 years old 50%
-Sazerac Rye 18 years old bottled 2007 or 2008 45%

Of course since Jim Murray doesn't specify the price in his reviews, I assume some of this bottles are incredibly pricey, but others might come as a surprise and be affordable (hence less than 100£/€ for me). I hope you'll be able to help, thanks in advance for your kindness.

Hey Cubitus,

Here's a link to a Belgian shop called Jurgen's Whiskyhuis. He doesn't have all the whiskey's your looking for, but he has some. He also ships within Europe. He's a very trustworthy guy. I've ordered from him several times and met him in person (even this week). If I find some more shops in Belgium or Holland I will let you know.

Thanks, I noticed he has McCarthy's (even though he states it comes from Oregon, Canada lol), Ancient Age, Evan William's, and Parker's Golden Anniversary, great. It seems like a nice shop, even though descriptions are a little bit messy. The weird thing is that nobody can find the european whiskies I'm looking for in european shops, whereas american whiskeys seem easier to find. By the way I noticed this nice website : http://www.whiskyfinder.eu/ , the title speaks for itself, it's kind of a price comparator but for whiskies. Very useful.

I know a Dutch collector of American whiskey and bourbon. I'll ask him where you can find the ones you're looking for. He might be able to help you. If I have more information on this matter I'll send you a PM.

Great that would be awesome, especially if you can find the Old Buck from Finland, they have a sort of official website, but it's in finnish, and there's no e-mail address.
