    I really want to try one of these, however, I have a hard time with $600 for something that's going to be gone in 2 weekends! LOL!!!
    I spent $250 recently on a limited bottle of Whistle Pig and it got destroyed(consumed) it pretty quickly.......

    Good luck. I"m sure it will be gone soon. :)

    Definitely understand. Amazing how quickly a bottle can disappear! Bought a nice bottle of Scotch last week... should have bought two.

    Every year there's a distributor here that blows out ALL the Pappy they can find, by the glass at a local bar.

    Good times.

    It's a lottery system so everyone gets a try.

    $600 is a good price, around here that bottle goes for more. Congrats if you're the buyer.

    I got a PM about 10 min before you posted so working that first, if it falls thru I’ll let you know. Thanks.

    I found $600 was the low end, some are way over that, but are they really selling? Went with a fair price. Looks like it’s finding a new home soon.

    I'd be very careful here; you're stomping all over TTB regulations and laws.

    Yep, I've still got my Pappy 20 yr (which I'd sell in a heartbeat) for that reason. PA is pretty tough on this sort of thing, and even run the occasional "sting". Kind of annoying, TBH.

    As an aside, anybody want to buy a super cool pen? I could probably let it go for $2500...

    That's exactly how you do it. The way the original poster did it? Not so much.

    They threatened to pull my alcohol license once because I sold a case to a guy from here who lived in my state. Found out he was going to be in New York the same weekend I was so I offered to bring him a few of his bottles. BUZZZZZZZZZ!!!!!! Nope! Go to jail, don't collect $200. Selling alcohol in one state and then delivering it in an unlicensed airplane across state lines? No soup for you.

    Man, I missed it already! Whoever got it will love it. That sticker is a rare collector's item. Goes on smooth and has many subtle, complex hues. It's quite expressive.

    My Pappy 20 is about half gone. My wife and I have a little each Christmas.

    And don’t forget, sending stickers through the US Mail is a federal felony. Use FedEx or UPS.
