    I was wondering when this one would be brought up. What I'm more interested in is the backstory of how they came to procure this specific allotment.

    There was an auction lot (Christies?) that feels very similar in age/qty that hammered late last year. I wouldn't be surprised if these were the same bottles.

    Ok, next question for somebody more knowledgable than me, is it legal to resell something that was purchased through a channel like this?

    I thought that retailers pretty much had to buy product through the normal distribution channels.

    Just curious.

    Passed on a THH at $109, and a Taylor Tornado at $99. Did pick up a Barbancort 5 Star rhum at the same place for $22.
