    A rare find!

    Today I found a store with 3 bottles of A.H. Hirsch 16 year Blue Wax Top! The price? $61.00 per bottle with a big sale sign down from $89.99!?!?!

    I grabbed them and ran to the till so fast that I scared the poor cashier.

    He said they've had them on the shelves forever and were trying to get rid of them!

    OMG

    This ranks among the top rare finds ever for me.

    That's fantastic. And great prices too!

    Here's a picture of the triplets. Anyone know their approximate collectors value of a one of these??

    Fear not my friends, I of course will open a bottle immediately upon completion of this post to enjoy what was ment to be enjoyed!

    Hard to say, the gold foil here in MI goes for $220.00 so if I were you I'd put them up on eBay and get at least 3 bills per, probably more.
    One thing is for sure, they don't taste like a 3 hundred dollar bottle of bourbon.
