    Do you mind posting the prices you saw either here or in the VW Current Price thread? Thanks LB.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Just found this gem on my local craigslist.

    "I have a 10 yr and a 12 year Pappy Van Winkle for sale. The seals have not been broken. Even though they have not been opened they are being sold as a collectible not for consumption. You must have a valid ID showing that you are 21 in order to bid.

    10 yr is $250
    12 yr is $325"

    I informed him he is an idiot and there is no such thing as Pappy 10 or 12... haha.. I feel so snobbish when I tell people that!

    I also told him his prices suck and then told him retail was 35/50... Loser

    Passed on several extremely overpriced PVW/VWs. First store wanted $275 for a PVW15 and $400 for a PVW20. Second store wanted Craigslist prices: $250 for a ORVW10 and $399 for a Lot B--both stores in DC.

    One wonders if all the Craig folks paid retail themselves.

    I wonder why he would care what happens to them if he gets his price?

    If you're talking about them not being for consumption, that's just a "loophole" on sites like that. You're not selling the alcohol, you're selling the bottle... see? Same thing happens with tobacco online. The box and bands are for sale, the tobacco is not for consumption.

    Try to explain that to the BATF.

    Hey, I'm just saying that's WHY people do it, not that I think it's an actual, legal move. It follows the general rules of Craigslist/ebay/wherever just enough to let it slide... I guess. Either way, tobacco (or booze) is not something I typically look to purchase from a non-retailer, just no telling how it's been stored. That's a bit more of a worry with cigars, but it's not like you have recourse if something is wrong with the product. Tobacco is dry? Why do you care? You bought them "for the bands".
