    Good story and great sale.

    The seller is a winner and also the domain broker walks away with great money.

    Congrats to Michael & David

    Two of THE nicest people in the domain industry!

    I did one of my first ever podcasts with them on OzDomainer.com back in 2008 and I remember very clearly talking about Whisky.com with them.
