    If you missed it

    a bottle of A.H. Hirsch 20 just went for $1378.75 today on ebay. Makes me glad I have 2 stashed away and sorry I ONLY have 2 stashed away.

    I wonder if the winning bidder has a $280.00 bottle of the Elmer T. Lee 90th birthday release in his collection?

    Makes me sad I don't have any stashed away. Never found one and even though I was close on getting a bottle once, looks like I'll never have a Hirsch 20 in the bunker.

    Re: If you missed it

    To clear things up, the "A. H. Hirsch" is the stuff from the closed distillery in PA, and the stuff in the stores now labeled "Hirsch" is made where? I have seen the current Hirsch stuff and didn't buy it because it seemed like really young whiskey for $35+. I have an open bottle of ETL 90th birthday and I'm trying to make it last. It tastes the same as the regular ETL to me, but that's fine because I like ETL a lot. I have one bunkered too. I think I paid $30 a piece.

    Re: If you missed it

    Here's a thread from 2007 when a bottle sold on ebay for $520.
    Some nice background/history of the Hirsch bottlings as well.

    Re: If you missed it

    To me A.H. Hirsch 20 is the ultimate trading dusty. It has high collection value, but low drinking value. Perfect for people who are drinkers but not collectors, because collectors will be willing to trade a lot of good drinkin' whiskey for one bottle of Hirsch 20. It's a win-win.

    For a mere $2500.00 I can get you a signed bottle...signed by the 2010 Straightbourbon.com Bourbonian of the Year. Delivery, to Chicago, will be another $500, but it will be delivered by the BOTY himself, and signed in your presence. Photos and video of the signing available for a substantial additional fee.
