Where/How to Sell a Bottle of Fancy Bourbon

I stumbled into a new bottle of 15 year old Pappy Van Winkle, and hope to sell for a reasonably maximal price. I think eBay discourages alcohol, Craigs List seems ill-suited, retailers will want a bargain, and I’d like to avoid scams. Is there an established, reasonably self-screened forum or listing service for this sort of thing?

Buying Bourbon in NYC and Brooklyn

I'm a new bourbon collector and I'm wondering what stores in Brooklyn and NYC have the widest and best selections? Also, while I'm at it, what are some of your favorite bottles? But more importantly, where can I buy them locally?

Best pro-tips for managing a five day drink-a-thon

I'm home for the holidays and seeing many friends after years apart. I have five days, each consisting of brunch, lunch and dinner with others, and am looking forward to unimaginable quantities of free alcohol. I am a seasoned (pickled?) drinker that does not normally get hangovers but never have I been on such a social whirlwind with so many opportunities to celebrate. Does anyone have advice for overcoming the potential weaknesses of the flesh to rise to this challenge? Or, how to pace myself when offered so much free deliciousness? Details below [more inside]

Secret Santa for a guy who has everything.

For my Secret Santa exchange I actually know the person pretty well, as opposed to every other year. Unfortunately my person tends to buy pretty much everything they need. I would identify his primary interests as cigars, bourbon, gadgets, Baltimore history and being Irish. What are some things I could get him where it wouldn't matter if he already had one?

Making the most out of WhiskeyFest

Hey! After years of amateur scotch/bourbon/rye drinking, I decided to take the plunge and bought a ticket to this year's WhiskeyFest. The challenge - there are over 400 bottles to sample (I know, poor me). But with a limited amount of time (and sobriety), what should I make a bee-line for? [more inside]

I like Islay whisky, what Bourbon might appeal?

My single malt top preference is for fairly tradiitonal peatty Islay malts. I very much enjoy most of the Laphroaig outputs and love the 16 year old Lagavulin - I can take or leave Bruichladdich and have no interest in the trend for super peatty malts. I am looking to expand my tastes into bourbon but have little experience. Given that love of Laphroaig and Lagavulin, what bourbons might most appeal?

Smooth Bourbon Suggestions

mrs. mmascolino is a big fan of Woodford Reserve Double Oaked. She particularly likes how smooth it is. Since I live near a well stocked Kentucky liquor store I thought I'd ask the citizens of the green to suggest other bourbons that match this ones in terms of smoothness.

Bourbon in Scotland

I'm heading to Scotland in a few months and I'd like to give my host, who's a fan of Scotch (or just whisky, there) a gift of good American Bourbon. My criteria are that it's a very good bourbon, and that it's a bourbon that he couldn't get there in Scotland. I don't know anything about bourbon, though. Want to help me out? [more inside]

I know Jack

How do I go about finding the re-sale value of bottles of whiskey / bourbon? My father has a fair number of old whiskey and bourbon bottles he has picked up over his years of travelling. He wants to find out if they are worth anything, or if he should just drink them? One of the bottles he's got us this one? Is it actually worth that much on the private market? How would he go about selling it? Ebay?

good bourbon bars for my diverse set of friends!

I often want to head somewhere with a friend in Brooklyn or Manhattan for a quiet bourbon or two in a dark setting. Nothing snobby. Dives are great. But somewhere that two people can sit at a table and chat, in a somewhat disarming setting. I love bourbon, and I want to share my love of bourbon with new friends in charming or crappy settings. I'm a bit of a hermit, so I just don't get out enough to find new places! [more inside]

What foods to pair with whiskey?

I'm having a whiskey party tonight. There will be a mix of scotches, bourbons, and other whiskeys, single-malt and blended. It will not be a dinner party but I'd like to provide some hors d'oeuvres and possibly desserts. I've heard sushi is good with whiskey so I thought lox might work, and this Honey and Whiskey ice cream looks good, but does anyone have any other ideas?
