I'll bet the guy who has whiskey.com parked will smile when he sees that...
The Russians weren't first though, Captn. Morgan already has rum.com.

The correct spelling of Whisky is, er.. Whisky (and I think "Scotch Whisky" can only be called so if distilled in Scotland).
Wow. That's a lot for just a domain name. Most big sales I read about turn out to be for a website/business - not really the domain as such.
I wonder how many bottles of Vodka will have to be sold before it pays for itself. Any guesses?

Em, no. The correct spelling for Scotch Whisky is Whisky, but the real genuine original Whiskey is Irish Whiskey :) - otherwise known as Uisce Beatha or "the water of life".

Personally, I think it's a stroke of genius, but it doesn't take a genius have thought it up :) I'm surprised more companies with interests in generic names haven't already jumped on this obvious bandwagon. Who owns vodkas.com? :)

Thanks! I've been doing this for years in my niche:-)

It's moments such as this that I'm unable to resolve whether to initiate a group round of mutual back-patting or enroll all of us clever boys and girls in modesty lessons.
Ain't very many of us that can say we're $3 million smart though.
Still, there's hope that some company will some day appreciate that we are that smart . . or maybe smarter . . like $4 million smart. ;)
Blessings to you all: May you be $1.00 smarter than the latest smart domainer.

From the same article, vodka is in the list of the top five.
1/ Sex-dot-com had sold for around $12 million
2/ Ice-dot-com sold for $7.5 million
3/ Business-dot-com sold for $7.5 million.
The deal was done throught S*DO, I am just wondering if they took 10% of the sale. May be less, may be more... Who knows?

Then Gin dot com and Rum dot com might be worth a few coins then.
