Been curious about this for a while and wanted to hear your thoughts.
So my question, is a "flipper" strictly someone that sells these bottles in the secondary for pure financial gain? or would the person in the above example be considered a "flipper".
Believe me, I am guilty of buying multiple bottles. I am kinda weird in this way in that I always like to have backup. If it turns out I am not a fan, I am open to trade it away as there may be bourbon available to others which are not readily available to me.
I guess this question kinda ties into the "Our ongoing observations about whether the boom has peaked" (Mods, please feel free to move). I guess as long as guys keep putting Pappy up on that pedestal, guys will continue to buy up all the middle tier limited releases in hopes of "trading up" to a bottle of Pappy, BTAC, Willet and such.
One final question, I am thinking about trading a WT Kentucky Spirit pewter top dusty for a bottle of Willett bourbon. I've never tried Willett bourbon and so I am curious to see what the fuss is all about. Does this make me a flipper? part of the problem?
This is probably nothing new to you guys but as I've said, I am fairly new at enjoying bourbon and was curious.
