  1. So many exciting spirits hitting the market, very interesting! The Pappy Van Winkle Bourbons are ones to watch as they have been exceeding estimates of late. Zachys Wine Auctions auctioned off 3 bottles of the 23 Year Old in our June 2013 live auction in New York City and the price realized was 203% above midpoint. Looking forward to seeing how spirits do in 2014.–Lydia Serrano, Zachys Wine Auctions
