    Rittenhouse 25Yrs

    Hello all, just looking for advice here. I have been offered this bottle and i know its a rare bottle at only 3000 bottles released world wide, would you say it worth the money at $600 Au or there are better options out there like Pappy or BTAC bottles ? Id love a Hirst 16yrs Thanks everyone Robbie

    Not at that price. I know of a bottle on the shelf in Brisbane at about $380 from hazy memory (I can check for sure if you are keen).

    Hi Robbie, confirmed today that the Rittenhouse 25 is still on the shelf:

    It is a Queens Plaza Wine + Beer Bottleshop in Brisbane CBD.

    http://tbhotels.com.au/retail-outlets/

    I spoke to Jack the manager and told him someone might be after it.

    The shelf price was indeed $380, but if you ask Jack nicely, he should be able to knock a few bucks off.

    Tell him Matt sent you.

    Cheers

    Matt

    Thats better than the price I have seen it for in Sydney. Last time I checked, a store was asking more than 1K for it.

    That's a prize pickup right there Robbie. The standard Rittenhouse BIB is impressive so the 25 year will be something special indeed. Never seen one anywhere in my neck of the woods before. Congrats!

    I'd say cause they're wankers trying to cash in on the bourbon popularity, but I didn't think it'd spread down here yet
