first of all I am very sorry for the much too late reply!
We chose to take those prices which ultimatively the buyer has to pay in order to become the new owner of the bottle but excluding delivery costs/shipping insurance (…). We do not include the delivery costs for obvious reasons. They are different for everybody and actually we do not even know to whom (or to where) each bottle was sold.
For the different auctioneers this means our prices are:
– WhiskyAuction.com: the hammer price as it is stated on their website.
– ScotchWhiskyAuctions.com: the hammer price plus 10%.
– WhiskyAuctioneer.com: the hammer price plus 10%.
Hope this answers your question.
The new database is coming soon!
