Hello to all,
I'm new to the forum and I was wondering if some of you could share your opinion about a Bourbon question. I was hoping to post this before the weekend was over since that's probably when most of you are online, but my account hadn't fully activated until just a short while ago.
I wanted to get a "rare/exclusive/great" Bourbon for a good friend of mine who's nuts about the stuff. I went in to several local shops and found what appears to be more or less the same items in each one, so I'm concerned about them being rare or hard to find etc. I don't want to get him something he can just get anywhere else.
A colleague said I should search ebay so I took a look on Saturday and saw 2 items that definitely seem to go well beyond the what can be found at a local outlet. Further net research indicates that Straightbourbon.com is THE place to go for information about Bourbon. I'm hoping some/any of you might be able to shed some light on them and let me know.
1st one is an AW Hirsch 16 and 20 year old. One has red wax top and the other a blue wax top and selling for 1,575 for the pair.
2nd one is IW Harper 1936 with what appears to be the original box, which I don't really need since it's for 12 bottles and not just the one. It was being offered for 1,400.
Do any of you have any insight/advice on these?
Many thank ahead of time, I appreciate it,
