    Re: Prices on PVW20

    Thanks again, everyone, for all the input.

    I just found out, from another liquor store here in CT, that the owner will order a bottle of PVW20 and sell to me for $74.99!!!! That's a great price here.

    Because I have done business with him before (I purchase two bottles of PVW23 and a Hirsch 16, he is willing to give me a break.

    Even thought I just purchased a PVW20 I'm going to get another one.

    That's a good price. That's nice of him to do that.

    As you've already been told, everything but the Bookers seems right, and even then I've seen plenty of places with Booker's marked up that high, but I work in an upscale area where prices seem to be a bit higher than they probably should be.

    I know one store in PA where Pappy is 69.99. I have no idea why it's less there, but 3 bucks is 3 bucks. (And it's probably not too far from you.)

    Re: Prices on PVW20

    From what I have seen PVW20 ranges a lot here in NJ, I've seen it from $65 to ~$125 but ~$80 seems to be the average; this bottle probably has the most varied pricing compared to all others. I've purchased Lot B in 2 different stores and in both it was ~$35. Bookers also seems to range, it could be anywhere from $45 to just under $60, fortunately the average price is somewhere ~$50.

    The 13yo, I believe the 12 year is incredibly hard to find, if at all possible these days.

    If you don't mind me asking, how much did this guy charge for the PVW23 and the Hirsch 16?

    That was back a while ago now, maybe about 6-8 months ago. It was funny, I was talking to him on the phone and he mentioned, in a nice way, that he wouldn't try to match an internet price (not something I was asking him to do, but a woman prior to my calling did) and he said that if he couldn't make some sort of profit he wouldn't. Then, I joked that he may not have done it for the woman but for a loyal customer like me (actually, I buy at any and all liquor stores based on inventory in price). Then I told him I bought some bottles of bourbon and he asked out of the blue if I bought the Hirsch and 23 old Pappys to which I said yes. Then he said that he'd give me a break on the Pappy 20.

    Now, getting to your question. It was a bit ago, but I remember getting the Hirsch 16 at $110-$120 range and the Pappy's was more expensive than that, I'd say $170-180 range per bottle. These prices are based on memory, but I'm sure I could find out the exact price if your interested.

    Re: Prices on PVW20

    I just picked up my 2nd bottle of PVW20 and the guy at the liquor store said he had to order it, but when I went in to see their selection, they had two bottles of it existing on their shelf. Maybe, he just ordered extra, but the price he was selling them at was $89.99, same price as binnys.com. Fortunately, he had marked mine with a sticker that said $74.99.

    Also, I saw Old Weller Antique for $19.99 and ORVW10 for $29.99. Are these good prices? I thought the ORVW10 was high, but OWA seemed like a good price, but what do I know.

    Re: Prices on PVW20

    The Weller Antique, in my opinion, is one of those lower priced bourbons that could easily be priced higher. I think it's a great bourbon and an absolute bargain at $20. There are others here on SB that like the Weller Antique also.

    Was the ORVW10 the 90 or 107 proof variant? $29 may be a little high. I think I paid somewhere around $25 for my 107 proofer.

    If you have to choose between the two of them, go with the Antique first....you won't be sorry.

    So, how much $$ are you in the hole now that you're getting all this advise on bourbon....it will break you...just wait.
