    Putting this hear because of the price....

    I apologize if doing this is wrong and if it is please feel free to tell me. I am new but thought this was worth broadcasting.

    Malt Advocate Marketplace has the New York Whisky Fest etched Glencairn Nosing glass for $5 each. They are on closeout....regular price was $31 each.

    NOW ONLY $5. Go get some at this great price.

    Halfway down the marketplace you will see them.

    https://www.maltadvocate.com/active_...arketplace.asp

    If this against the rules please clip the thread....

    I put it here because it will get seen and benefit the members.

    Shipping was a little much...but it is glass and I am assuming the packing will be plenty expensive.

    Even with the shipping....it's a deal.

    Glad I could steer a deal.

    Dave, it's ok. It's not like you're posting a verbatim advertisement from a retailer who'll blatantly profit from you putting the info here. I am going to move it to the Paraphenelia forum though. I might order a couple just not sure I want to pay the $12 fpr shipping, like you said, seems a little high.

    I apologize....another member told me after I posted it in a PM. My intentions we good and appreciate you seeing that.

    Ahhhhhhhhhh, even with the shipping...seems to be a fairly good price. AND....nice to have a piece of history....EVEN if we didn't go to the convention.

    But when you have guests over...after polishing off a few rare bottles of fine small batch...I bet you can pretend you WERE there.

    Next time I will be sure to put it in the right spot.

    No worries at all Dave, and yeah I might go ahead and get a couple, I was trying to find a good price point on shipping but they seem to raise it a good few bucks for every additional glass. But I could give a couple to my buddy as an xmas gift since he seems to have lost 3 of the 4 bourbon reidels I gave him a few years back. Definitely need something quality to drink out when there.

    Nah, auction site links aren't in good favor around here. But I'll post a pic since i'd never seen it and doubt many others had as well. Although I have a sneaking suspicion this will start a conversation about it, if so I'll move the comments to a new thread.

    I don't know why, but I ordered a set of the New York 2008 and a set of the San Francisco 2008 glasses at the six for $30 discount price.

    Turns out that a set of 6 counts as ONE ITEM for shipping purposes, so I was only charged $12 for a dozen glasses ($8 for the first item and $4 for the second).

    So, Paul, you'd have come out better buying half a dozen @$30 than four @$5.

    A half dozen are $30+$8=$38. Four ordered as individual items are ($5x4)+$8+($4x3)=$40. You could have had six for two bucks less.

    Binny's sells them on the shelf--not engraved, of course--for about $10 each, so that seems a fair price. I have rather a nice set of the MA ones, as I've attended every WhiskeyFest in Chicago.
