I hope I did all of those abbreviations correctly... Just to be clear, I am not soliciting a trade from anyone on this board. I have the opportunity to trade one of my 2011 PVW 15 year for the 2012 4 Roses LE Small Batch, which IMHO opinion is one of the best whiskeys that I have ever consumed. I'm down to about 1/4 of a bottle on my 4R and am trying to figure out how to replace it.

The guy that I would trade with is a known flipper who is going to try to sell my 15yr for $400 on craigslist, but I still would rather have another bottle of the 4R. I have a moral dilemma of not contributing further to the BS PVW craze/price gouging that is making this even more difficult. So like I said, I'm interested in opinions.

1. Should I do this deal or not.
2. Is this really a straight up deal considering what I know he is going to try and flip it for?
3. What else should I ask for in addition to the 4R? A lot B?
