    Curious on how you came up with your prices. These seem a bit steeper than most prices I’m seeing on secondary markets

    Saw all of these in NJ today cheaper, even though they were higher than MSRP

    Why is KC18 so sought after? It’s overpriced, overoaked, and underproofed.

    If you’re basing it off your local area that’s pretty cool that you have access at those prices

    but
    My bottles are ready to go in the mail
    And are priced according to what I am willing to let them go for.
    I appreciate your interest

    Thanks, I know nothing is perfect all the time. I'd just like to know if I'm paying through the nose for something that I shouldn't. That's kinda what I've been doing with Total Wine website, as there is at least one of those near Nashville. The bourbon/whiskey markets in the less regulated states can be pretty wide ranging in their prices. I also took pictures of the shelves in my favorite liquor store in town. They generally have fair prices on most of their stuff, at least for this area. Again not being regulated theirs no guaranty the prices are MSRP. But when I'm in a new store I'll pull the pics up and compare the prices. It just really bugs me to get ripped off in a primary market.

    Couple finds from yesterday. Don't know how I feel about the Little Book, both it and Booker’s have zoomed up in price and when compared to similar bourbons in terms of age and proof and batching, it’s starting to get ridiculous.

    The Baker’s wasn’t cheap either but I’ve come to really love the 7 year, so interested to try the older stuff.

    Remember when MSRP for good stuff was, like, $50-$75?

    Yeah, Washington seems to be a hit, miss, miss, miss. What works best for me is leaving an eye open everywhere I go. Haggen has been real surprising this year on what random bottles show up.

    I'm not basing it off my local area, I'm basing it off secondary groups that exist and ship nation wide.
    They also have bottles ready to go in the mail, either same day or next day.

    Not meaning to sound like a dick here, but why would anyone buy a bottle of WFP from you for $375 + shipping when they can buy it in a secondary group for $200 shipped. Hell, you can get a WFP Store Pick for $235 shipped.

    a lot of us in here have been helping each other get hard to get bottles for at cost plus shipping. its a nice thing we've had for awhile and it would be great if that energy kept going.

    If anyone has any leads on Makers Cellar Aged that doesn't require an international flight... :annoyed:

    Love the small batch. The Single Barrel I got this year was exceptional. I ran across 2 in the middle of nowhere and now I regret only buying 1.

    smashed this, broke that, covered it up with tape and paint
    Didn’t know
    Good thing to hear
    I’m trying to move out of the hostile living Environment I’m in and I am on a fixed income
    So selling my personal property in order to speed up the process is my only option

    I’m not privy to any of these groups where bottles of high value are going for near msrp
    I can only base my price off google

    where I live, these bottles aren’t on the shelf
    and aren’t available even at high secondary

    I’ll delete my post
    Thanks for the heads up

    Secondary groups selling a $50 bottle of WFP for $200 is not what I'd consider "near msrp".
    But it's a lot more reasonable than your list of $375.

    If you have any questions about what bottles are actually selling for, feel free to PM me.

    WFP from 2023
    Cool

    WFP from 2016
    Nah

    that was the last comment I was making in my original post
    All my bottles are from 2018
    Or
    Older
    Just like with every other bottle of bourbon
    A 2016 EHT BP or WFP is worth more than the current year

    I appreciate your offer to more reasonable pricing based on new production bottles
    That is definitely helpful once I get newer bottles

    but for additional example
    The EC18 is a specific year and batch
    Some people care
    Some people don’t
    Same with EHT
    WFP
    And W12

    some years of W12 are downright gross

    and I AM trying to make a profit

    When you get in a position where being at home makes you…we’ll say “uncomfortable”
    You only want to release your limited amount of possessions for the maximum dollar you can,
    That said.
    Had anyone been interested outside of complaining
    I would have happily haggled on price in an effort to gtfo of here

    I’m aware of EHT BP having differentiated batches by year because each has a different proof. Meaning there is a specific consumer awareness of a difference from year to year. However, and I know a LOT of bourbon people, I don’t know anyone who cares what year a Weller anything is from in terms of there being a significant impact on value. Unless it’s vintage, particularly in a previous label or bottle style.

    I could not tell you which years of Weller anything were better or worse years and I’m having trouble finding any general discussion of that via the Google machine. Sure, reviews identify which year the bottle is from, but no one is talking about, say, this year Weller 12 was trash compared to the rest or this year Weller CYPB was amazing. Those conversations are typically for products where you don’t have to reference the bottle laser code to figure out the bottling year. I can’t find any lists ranking years of individual Wellers like I can with Stagg or EHTBP or others with discernible year differences.

    Anyway the above extends to any bottle that doesn’t have a differentiated proof per batch or doesn’t otherwise have clear yearly labeling like Shenk’s or Bomberger’s or Booker’s. Those products also change year to year in ways that, say, Weller does not.

    BTW you’ll find that nationwide Weller sales have no noticeable delta in average price depending on the bottling year. A 2018 fetches the same on average as a 2023. You can get that data from auction sites.

    You can definitely make an argument for EHTBP being more valuable as you go back to older batches. But for that to be significant you really have to go back pretty far. I don’t think the delta between a 2017 batch, whatever that number is, and today’s is that much. And I have looked at a shit ton of secondary price lists.

    So that’s a very long way to say, no one cares about pre-2018 Weller, it’s not a thing.
