Yeh its stupid!! As far as I am aware there is only one distributor of PVW in Oz and I had a chat with him at his store about a year ago while buying a bottle for $80 less than dan has it, he confirmed that Nicks get their stock through him as well, adding another $50 to the price, the way he told it he had a good relationship with Julian VW going back a few years. Either dans have muscled in on him and are taking the piss with their markup knowing the current hype, or they are buying through the distributor and charging a handling fee larger than Nicks, either way its a scumbag move.
Edit: talking about the 20yr - didnt realise they had others, holy crap!! Those prices!
