    Hypothetical PVW 23 trade

    Here is the scenario:
    You have a bottle of PVW 23 that you are sure you can trade to one of two liquor stores.
    One store has a VWFRR ($360 on the shelf) and a ORVW 10/107 ($170!!! on the shelf) that you may be able to get for it, as said store just sold a PVW 20 for $600.
    The other has 5 bottles of JPS 18 ($100!! on the shelf) that you may be able to get for it, as said store just sold a PVW 23 for $550.

    Which store do you go to first, assuming the first store takes you up on your offer?

    I may be doing this tomorrow, just curious what you would do. Never mind what I like.
    BTW, I have already had success at one of the shops by trading a Lot B for a V23 Rye.

    Re: Hypothetical PVW 23 trade

    This is crazy, sick, twisted and disgusting. Pappy23 should be around $250, VWFRR around $70 and 10/107 around $40. The JPS I see around $90...

    So, how about you trade the Pappy23 for the five bottles of JPS and then go trade two JPSs for the VWFRR and the ORVW 10/107?

    Blows my mind what people seem to have to go through to get their hands on good bourbon (ORVW) and excellent rye.

    Interesting idea. That's why I posted. The question would be, does the owner of shop #2 even know WTF JPS 18 is?

    Don't think it matters what he knows necessarily -- what do his customers know? People don't care that JPS is SW, they want Pappy -- SW or not.

    That's what I was thinking...trade for the 5 JPS' and re-trade. That way you're still getting SW, but more of it

    I'd make that trade all day long

    Lot B is $50 around here, 4R SmB LE is $80ish

    I'd make that trade in a heartbeat. The LE2012 is going to be "the one that got away" for me this year. Just can't seem to find one anywhere.

    That's awesome. From now on I'm hunting Lot B at retail for trade bait! Call it Lot Chum.
