    Trading bottles

    While its completely understandable why there are no "bourbon for sale" threads, what about a trading thread/forum between board members? I see several posts from 4 or 5 years ago regarding this - but haven't seen anything recently. I noticed that Jim said he wasn't interested in doing anything like this, but that was nearly 4 years ago.

    I have over 100 bottles of bourbon, but most are fairly new and I'd love to get my hands on some old stuff. I know there are several members on the board that have older bottlings, that have a hard time tracking down new releases due to where they live.

    There may be some legalities surrounding this but I figured I'd ask... Perhaps people can just list what they have or what they are willing to part with and everything else can be conducted via PM or email...

    I would defiantly like an open trade thread here on the forum. I believe everything above the waterline is better than below.

    I'm not a lawyer nor law enforcement, but I think they may be laws about trading spirits. Thus, no forum.

    Wuss. Do it subtley. "Say, I have a bottle of amber fluid, orange label, 20 years old, rhymes with Pan Crinkle that I would gladly trade you today for a hamburger on tuesday."

    I'm not so certain that I'm a wuss nor is the man in charge of the website, but an open forum discussing illegal activities is just not a good idea.

    Ah, my apologies. I was joking. I will be less subtle next time. And the noobs thing, eh?

    Well, I have a hamburger for trade if anyone would want it. If someone still has those compromising pictures of Paul, that would be great- I'll even throw in some highly collectible mustard if they come in a manilla envelope.
