Strangely enough, the recent proliferation of auction sites hasn't resulted in lower prices, so far. Seems that many bid on bottles, just because they think it's worth a certain price, even if they already have it. And it seems they can afford to win multiple times too.

Surely it just adds value to the market, increased competition should lower costs etc to customers.

I have been reviewing www.whiskyauctioneer.com and think it is great, I am currently bidding on a number of lots. (1964 Bowmore Trilogy - think i'll remortgage the house as its worth the cost). I am likely to sell a few as they are offering 0% comission to sellers for a short while.
