Hi there,
7 years ago I randomly bought Bacardi 151 for around 25 EUR. I still have almost full bottle, I sometimes use if for Zombie cocktails, flaming cocktails or fallernum. Its score on RR is below 4. Recently I started watching Catawiki auctions and notice that Bacardi 151 costs around 150 EUR ( https://www.catawiki.pl/l/43868413-bacardi-151deg-proof-1-litr ). Can somebody provide any explanation? How can I learn about investing in rums from this observation?

Ffffff

kudzey:

Bacardi quit making their 151 rum some time ago because it was not selling. Therefore, almost any discontinued item will possibly become a collector's item even if it was crap. When it came to collecting vinyl records, if an album was crap, then few copies were made and never to be seen again. I have some music CD's that are total crap, but used copies are going for hundreds of dollars. Go figure. Collectors really go for this kind of thing (and I am not one as we all know on here).

I also seriously don't think those bottles of Bacardi 151 will go up any more in price.
