Cuban-barrel-aged Glenfiddich banned from US

Glenfiddich Havana Reserve, a really, really nice scotch whisky that's matured in Cuban rum barrels, has been banned from import into the US because, somehow, that violates the embargo against trade with Cuba.
The company has been trying unsuccessfully to have the six-year-old Helms-Burton trade barrier relaxed through its legal representatives in New York.

The act tightened the four-decade-old economic embargo against Cuba and seeks to punish foreign-owned companies that engage in the "wrongful trafficking in property confiscated by the Castro regime".

Now, William Grant is introducing its precious malt to Canada, which has no such Cuban crisis and a waiting list to keep up with demand.
