Thank you for the response you guys. This seems to be one of the problems I'm having. Both of these places are in the UK. To get them there there is customs and then there is a duty tax plus if it sell in the UK there is a 20% sales tax. That's allot of taxes plus the auction fees to both buyer and seller. On topof that I don't have that much time as I wiuld be looking at an April auction date.
That bottle for 5600 (GBP) = about $8,900.00 US. That bottle is also a 700ml. The one I have is one of about 30 bottles that were bottled for sale in the states and is a 750ml bottle. So it is really amore rare the the opne for sale at the Whisky Exchange. I need go get about $7,000.00 for the one I have. I think that's a fair price for it. I was told that if someone had the extra time and placed it in the right auction it could bring five figures. The only one I found that sold in San Francisco was in 2008 to the Majestic Hotel,. I don't know the size of that bottle, it sold for $7,500.00 then. From what I can tell whisky prices have gone up since 2008. Anyone that may know of a whisky club or collector in the San Francisco Bay area. I'm thinking I might just have to go to some upper end bar, hotels and resturants. I would really like to see a collector get it. Anyone have any ideas? The other Bowmore's are not ones you can just run to the store and pick up as well.
