I bought a bottle of Basil Hayden Darker Rye (or something like that) at Costco, but my son helped me unload the car and I can't figure out where he put it.

Spent quite a bit of time at BILIL's house. Put a lot of Grey Goose into bottles of Bai lemonade flavors. Was actually pretty good on a warm afternoon outside.

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!
