Pappy Van Winkle - 15 year

This is the finest and most sought after bourbon on the planet. It is all but impossible to find on a store shelf anywhere.

The cult status of Pappy means that the waitlist time for a single bottle at liquor stores can hit as high as the ten year mark. Pappy produces only around 7,500 cases a year. That is compared to other bourbon makers like Jim Beam, which churn out around 7 million cases a year.

All of the Van Winkle bourbons are made with corn and wheat instead of the more common pairing of corn and rye. This "wheated" recipe gives the bourbon a much softer, smoother taste and it also allows the whiskey to age more gracefully.

The Company’s legendary motto: "At a profit if we can, at a loss if we must, but always fine bourbon."

I guarantee this will be the best bourbon you have ever tasted.

If shipping is required, a $50 shipping and handling fee will be added to the final bid at check-out.

Hawaii Getaway

This private Eden reveals four private houses spread out over two acres and presents a variety of accommodations, as each house offers it's own distinctive floor plan. The winning bidder may use one or all three properties. The entire property sleeps 18-20.  Set back from the road, a striking variety of lush flora envelopes and divides the property, including hibiscus, birds of paradise, orchids, ferns, palms, an awesome banyan tree and fruit trees offering the freshest mangoes, papayas, bananas and avocados that are yours for the picking. Savor oceanic, pastoral or jungle views as tropical birds sing, geckos chatter, the island breezes caress the trees and the resonance of the tide rhythmically whispering in the distance.
