the last couple of times i've traveled internationally, i have been asked by the CBP agent if we had any booze. we usually one go with the 2 bottles per adult and i answer truthfully when asked. last trip through dublin, i ended up splurging and figure i might have to pay some taxes...however, the customs agent asked how many bottles and i answered "6"...three for each for my wife and me. agent simply took our declaration slips and wished us a safe flight.

honestly, i think they're only concerned if you're trying to bring back quantities that appear like you might want to re-sell them.

note: last trip we were finally approved for global entry...made that whole customs and immigration process so much less stressful!

My wife baked a beautiful caramelized apple cherry pie. I paired that appropriately.

Rum

I recently brought this bottle back from my trip to Nassau. I haven’t tried it yet, I’m hopeful it’s palatable.

Scored

I recently scored a bottle of Weller 12, and it’s been a “long week.”
Cheers and have a great weekend!

Believe me, I expected to pay more. Hence the word choice of “scored.” I too have paid much more for a lesser spirit.

I put my name on a “wait list” about 5-6 months again, and waited.

Nah, I’d save the Dublin DP for something higher-shelf, like a Pappy or Eagle Rare.

I need some Dublin DP though, come down and share.

You aren't an alcoholic if you don't need help, so as long as you can get it yourself you are fine.
