    Agreed. Some of the prices out there today are outrageous.

    Re: How much Hirsch 16 yr old is left?

    I can find it in a few shops around Ann Arbor, but the price is just over $200.
    I paid about $50 for a bottle of the blue wax in Myrtle Beach about 4 years ago. And I left a few bottles on the shelf. They were sitting next to the $70 bottle of 20 year old...

    Re: How much Hirsch 16 yr old is left?

    I just talked to someone at Cork n' Bottle in Covington, Kentucky (the old owners of the Hirsch bourbons) and they do not have any in stock.

    I have seen it here in St. Louis for $85, so I guess I should grab some before the infestation of $150 or $200 prices reaches St. Louis.

    The price jump in some places probably represents what the stores are being charged when they reorder. The stores where it's still under $100 are probably still working through existing inventory.

    Re: How much Hirsch 16 yr old is left?

    I'm just happy I got mine at under $100 (that was some time ago). It's a decent whiskey, and all things considered if I hadn't bought it before I probably would have bought it in the future and been seriously disappointed.

    I was told today that I purchased the last 1,000 bottles of Hirsch 16.

    Re: How much Hirsch 16 yr old is left?

    I was too late! I went to the store today, and the Hirsch 16 I had seen for $85 was now $160. Well, not exactly the same bottles -- the liquor manager told me they had sold out of the $85 stuff, and when he re-ordered, it cost him $800 per case.

    So Chuck was right, as usual.

    I'm not paying $160 for it.

    That frees me up to buy something else.

    Any suggestions?

    This is the likely scenario in most of the price increases. We recently bought 2 more cases at an increase of over $15/bottle in costs. The shelf price is higher accordingly.

    Re: How much Hirsch 16 yr old is left?

    Are the numbers the liquor manager gave me standard kinds of numbers?

    At $800 per case (I am assuming a case is 12 bottles - correct?), he is paying $67 per bottle, and selling it for $160 per bottle.

    Is that a standard degree of mark-up?
