How/where to sell nice wine/liquor?

Hey everyone, I recently found a case of 6 unopened Meukow Cognac XO bottles (retail ~$100), which I want to sell. eBay and craigslist prohibit the sale of alcohol. Are there any other options -- wine/liquor trade show, etc.? Thanks.

Try selling directly to a wine/liquor shop.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I was clearing out a basement for a family member who told me to keep anything I found. The person was a pack rat, so I had to sort through a lot of junk before I found the boose.

I collected wines from California, France, Italy and Ukraine as well as Armenian cognac and Vodkas from Eastern Europe. They were all purchased over twenty years of travel.

Over the past 3 years I have given most away as it was too hard to sell in Canada. I no longer pay for labor at my LBS or my dentist..
