Bourbon in Scotland
January 25, 2013 7:12 PM Subscribe
I'm heading to Scotland in a few months and I'd like to give my host, who's a fan of Scotch (or just whisky, there) a gift of good American Bourbon. My criteria are that it's a very good bourbon, and that it's a bourbon that he couldn't get there in Scotland. I don't know anything about bourbon, though. Want to help me out?

I don't know anything about bourbon, but a little research gave me a list of bourbons that are readily available in my area and are generally considered high quality: Buffalo Trace, 1792 Ridgemont Reserve, Bulleit, Woodford Reserve, Blanton's, & Basil Hayden.
The main problem I'm running into is figuring out which ones are and are not available in the UK. Does anyone know if any of the above bourbons are or are not available there? Or do you know another bourbon I should be considering?
