Private Eye / Macallans bottle

Postby Ricboy278 » Sun Feb 27, 2011 3:55 pm

Hi All,
I'm a total novice ... I bought the above bottle on my 35th Birthday and now as my 50th looms closer ( dear god nooo!) I was considering selling this to fund my self induced stupor to avoid remembering how old i am..
Any suggestions would be welcome, not on how to get that drunk! but on the best way to sell this?
Thanks

Ric

Thanks i'll give these people a whirl, oh I also emailed a couple of online Whisky dealers one of them offer me £500 which seemed generous until I looked on their website and found they were selling a bottle for over £900.00!!
I know they have to make a profit but still seems a bit rich!

Take into account that The Wright Wine Company are selling it (with back label missing!) for £595 (http://www.wineandwhisky.co.uk/whisky/info_531.html) and Underwood Wines are selling it for £744.43 (http://www.underwoodwines.co.uk/P4015.aspx)

I'd be wanting £600+ assuming it's in good nick.

Guys,
thanks for the info...I'm tempted to try for a private sale maybe and see how it goes... Not sure where to advetise it though... Ebay might be an option allthough its not really targetted and you can get some timewasters on there
