Very Olde St Nick???

What’s with Very Olde St. Nick Whiskey?  Is it the Screaming Eagle of Bourbons?  I just found some bottles online for $900 in the UK!  Insane.  Who pays that kind of money for a bourbon?  Also a couple other more reasonable listings but it was gone by the time I got there.  Anyone else find any?

It is a label made for the Japan market.
Usually it's pretty old and rare whiskey...but, it doesn't really tell ya' where they are getting their juice from.

From Japan.
Old St. Nick is imported to Japan on around 1990.
1st lot's juice from Stizzel-Weller,subsequetly it from Heaven-Hill.
I found dusty bottle some month ago in my prefecture,Old St. Nick 15yr 107proof bottled on around late 90's by roughly 6000yen=$58.
I think if it is 1st lot,$900 is too much expensive!
