    Found Monkey Shoulder at the Local Trader Joe's for $22. Really good. I was wondering if anyone knows what scotches are used in the blend.

    It's very frustrating that Plymouths won't import the MIDDLE STRENGTH they used to make available only in Duty Free outlets. (They may not make it at all anymore.) It was 46 or 47 percent ABV, which is more standard for London Gins. Of course, you can mix the 'regular' Plymouths with the Navy Strength and get a similar result.

    Nice work! I've been trying to build a good list of these 'unavailable in the US' spirits for awhile now. A few more that I've uncovered include: Cherry Marnier, the cherry-flavored cousin to the standard orange Grand Marnier, Van Der Hum, a tangerine liquor from South Africa, and many varieties of Citroenbrandewijn, a lemon brandy that rarely makes its way out of the Netherlands.

    Don't forget to pickup a bottle of Tapatio Tequila when you're in Mexico. It's delicious and unavailable in the US. http://www.specialitybrands.com/Tapatio-Tequila.htm
