    Has anyone purchased something from BOTTLESPOT or equivalent market. If so how did you know it was the real stuff. Example, some of the PAPPY bourbon is quite expensive and hard to find,so if you purchase it on the secondary market ,how can you be sure it is genuine? Edward

    You don’t ever really know. Check eBay they have empty bottles of Pappy for sale. People buy them and refill them with Wellers bourbon. They then sell them at a premium. I have purchased from bottle spot in the past. It’s important to know the seller. It is estimated that 30% of the pappy van winkle for sale is fake. I would suggest always purchasing from a trusted seller.

    I was wondering if there was any way to verify the product. The wine market has had several scams. NC use to put a tax stamp over each top ,but they have discontinued that practice. That would be a second safe guard. So you just have to trust the market,and seller. Edward
