    Re: Hypothetical PVW 23 trade

    Not trying tp spoil the party, but I seem to remember reading or hearing somewhere, that it is illegal for a liquor store to acquire alcohol from anyone or anyplace other than a distributor or a wholesaler. Has anyone else heard if this is true or not?

    The first spot did not come close. At the 2nd spot I was surprised to see a PVW 23 on their shelf.....for $900!!!! Didn't even bother talking trade, but perhaps I can try and sell it to them closer to Xmas.
    I'm thinking I may just hold it, or say f#$k it and make it part of my wheater flight at my Xmas party tasting event. It's a 2004 bottling.
    Cheers!
    I thought this was all hypothetical.

    It is also illegal to smoke pot in California. Uhhhh, unless you have a "prescription."

    I believe this is true. It is also illegal for a liquor store to accept returns of a bottle that has left the store. Why? Well some crackpot out there could refill an empty bottle with something else and reseal it. Would you want to buy a bottle of liquor (or any food product frankly) that was a return item?

    Can't a crackpot screw up anything? So, I don't know why this would be the reason for not accepting returns of liquor.

    I think I'm putting all my PVW in the trunk and driving out to California.

    100% true. Commercial retailers must buy from a distributor and only distributors that have registered in their state. If owned a liquor store in NJ, I couldn't bypass my state's distributor of VW and place an order with the cheaper NY distributor.

    Definitely a local law, if true. In PA and in fact many stores in DE and NJ, will accept for returns any unopened bottles of alcohol.
