    Re: How much Hirsch 16 yr old is left?

    I bought 16 bottles earlier this year from a place that closed for $60 per (plus tax) and sold 12 of them to friends all over the country for $75 delivered. If they had more I would have bought more but I can't see paying some of the $150-200 prices being mentioned.

    Re: How much Hirsch 16 yr old is left?

    Although the nine-liter case (12 750 ml bottles) is considered standard, many super-premium products come in smaller cases. Woodford, for example, comes in a 6-bottle case, Stagg comes 3 bottles to a case. So, considering the numbers quoted, I suspect that $800 is for a case of fewer than 12 bottles.

    Thank you, Chuck.

    Anyone know for sure what a "case" of Hirsch 16 yr old is?

    I will ask the liquor manager what he meant next time I get over there.

    I've seen them come in 12 bottle cases. But that could certainly be different in other areas.

    Oh, ow, that makes me hurt just thinking of finding blue wax and red wax for that little ... and then leaving it!

    Re: How much Hirsch 16 yr old is left?

    So it looks like I am late to the discussion but I am new to the forum but the Hirsch 20 is my passion so I follow the pricing of the 16 just in case I ever see some 20 the gets disgourged by the gods and lands on a shelf.

    In Atlanta there is plenty at $135. That price has held for the last couple of years.

    On E-bay the 16 generally never gets any bids when priced over $130.

    All the disrtibitors that I have talked with as well as the guys at Sam's and Binny's tell me there is plenty left in the market. In fact Binny's was trying to unload a bunch about 20 months ago and I got a call at my house. I like the 20 much more than the 16 so I passed and saved my bucks for the rare times I can squeeze out a 20 from someone.

    Re: How much Hirsch 16 yr old is left?

    For what it's worth, Hirsch 16 is pretty easy to find around here for about $80. Stores must be working through existing stock, and it doesn't appear to be moving very quickly.
