absentem laedit cum ebrio qui litigat.
Look, assuming you paid close to MSRP for the PVW23, and you trade it for VWFRR and ORVW 10/107, you still end up overpaying by about a factor of two. I've had both of these and they are great but hardly worth $250 in my opinion. The smart play would be to trade your overvalued PVW23 for something that's not overvalued. For instance, a 25 or 30 year old single malt. Or multiple cases of whatever value bourbon tickles you... if it was me it would be OGD114, but VOB and Mellow Corn are worthy suggestions, too.
Or, barring that, 5 JPS18s. At least then you're only overpaying by 25%.
I guess "give 'em the bird" isn't just a marketing slogan, it's a brand management strategy, too.
If I walked up to the counter at any of the liquor stores around here, asked for the owner or manager, and said, "I have this bottle of Pappy 23 and I'd like to trade it for those other bottles of whiskey over there..", I'd expect to get in reply, "What, are you from the ABCC? The Department of Revenue? Credit card, debit or cash, or get the hell out of here!"
