For the Willett that Reid and I did (Reid and Emerald's) 6 yr, we are going to distribute those by the case only.
Each bottle will be between $35-40 plus shipping (a Case is 12 so $420-$480 plus shipping).
What each of you will need to do is band together to get a case.
I will tell you that this 6 year bourbon blows the doors off of the other 6-7 yr Willetts that have been bottled and it also shamed the 13 and 18 yrs we tasted. This is a top notch bourbon that I know you will enjoy.
What y'all should do is find someone to be the point for 1 or more cases and then they can act as the distributor out to the rest of you.
Example: Devin would buy a case and send four to James, and Scott
Example: Steve would buy a case and send 1 to 11 other folks.... etc
The reason for this is to reduce the burden on Reid and myself. We do not have the time to organize single bottle sales to every person that wants one. The glasses have already been a fun enough project.
You do not need to feel obligated to buy any of the Willetts. There are about 14 cases total and 4 have already been spoken for. Reid and I plan to keep 2-3 each so that only leaves 4-6 open for sharing....
I recommend that folks that want some post here and we start to collect who wants what. We will track who wants what on this thread http://www.bourbondrinker.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=1481
Once y'all get together for the case, the POC should collect the $$$s and send a single check to either Reid or myself. We will hold cases (as identified on the thread above) for those that have claimed a case. Please do not make it a long process once we have identified the total cost to ship.
Bourbon Joe on BE.com (From Penn) wants at least 2. Who wants to take the lead on the first case?
