This years edition of Costco KS private label single malt is available in some stores in MA. Price $44.99 per 750ml bottle. It is aged 20 years and sherry cask finished. Seems like a great deal for the age for fellow SDers. If you've tried it, please share some tasting notes here.
  • Costco Item Number 650728
  • You usually don't need Costco membership if you are only buying liquor. At least where I am, no surcharge either, you pay the same as us members.
  • Due to state liquor regulations etc, some Costco liquor stores are operated by independent liquor/wine shops that may/can not carry Costco KS private label products
  • Call your stores ahead to verify availability if in doubt

Macallan was shown as the distillery in last year's version but the price was about twice as much. This year they might have gotten this from a different Speyside source.

Cheers.

Oban (and Glenkinchie, I believe) are on instant rebate sale right now in California.

So the Middleton Costco did have it in stock? Might just have to head out after football today.
It was alive and well in Sun Prairie as of about an hour ago (at least 20 bottles left). I would assume Middleton would have it as well, though it might sell out faster there, you know those west siders and their refined tastes Stick Out Tongue

I've got a glass in hand right now (neat). I'm really more of an Islay gal, the more aggressive the better. This is mild and very very smooth, not what I usually buy but it's good stuff. A steal for the price.

more specifically San Jose. Let us know if you have better luck in SF.

Any finds in the SF Bay Area. This is the best time to stock up on booze from Costco.

Anyone have any luck in Northern California? No luck for me at a few stores on the peninsula
It wasn't on the shelves in Richmond. I asked a manager if they were going to get any stock of that product number and she couldn't find evidence of the product existing in the computer for the entire "Bay Area Region".

It looks like we're out of luck, at least for the time being. It sounds like they're getting it in SoCal, and it's hard to imagine that they would leave us dry like that. That just wouldn't be fair.

It does taste like Grey Goose and I heard Kirkland actually purchased the distillery.
To me, that is not a point in its favor.

You've now successfully linked to another article from 2008 about 5 random vodkas and 3 random people found in bars... and an article from 2007 about an article from 2005 about 6 random vodkas and 6 random people...

So now in the sum of 3 random articles you've managed a total test panel of 15-16 random people with no qualifications judging roughly the same number of random vodkas...

Let's try this in another category, can the average person tell the difference between a quality set of headphones and their crappy skull candies? No, no they can't. Am I still always going to suggest that people buy the quality set that is the same price or cheaper than their crappy set? Yes, yes I am. Can the average person tell the difference between 720p and 1080p or the difference between a quality TV and a crappy one? Nope, not in the least it's the main reason consumer laptops have such shitty resolutions and bad models of TVs sell at the same volume as good models. Am I always going to suggest people buy the best quality picture TV available in their price range? Yes, yes I am.

See my point? I'm not in anyway attempting to argue that the average person can tell the difference between smirnoff and monopolowa I'm simply saying why would I suggest the crap tier smirnoff that's $10-15 a bottle when I can suggest the gold tier monopolowa that has ranked 92-96 out of 100 for the past 5 years in a row and is $10-15 a bottle... I don't get why you would even argue that people should just buy smirnoff when they can actually buy great vodka for the same price as smirnoff just because the average person can't tell the difference between the two doesn't mean they're never going to lend their headphones to someone with better than average hearing or have someone with discerning eyes watch their tv or someone with a discerning palate drink their vodka. I will always suggest the best quality for the lowest price.
Thanks for taking the time to summarize this better than I could. Smilie

I was told by a wine specialist at Costco that this is Macallan but since Costco is not using their name this time, this is cheaper than previous years version of Kirklands for Macallan
I'm not saying it is impossible, but this is highly suspicious. Macallan 18 year old sells for $150+ a bottle. Macallan is also one of the most popular single malt whiskeys. If they had a whole bunch of excess 20 year old laying around, why would they dump it at costco for pennies on the dollar? Even if it didn't meet their quality metrics they could still do a lot of different things with it and get a better return.

I'd love to be proven wrong and take advantage of it.

The Kirkland American Vodka is pretty darn good in my opinion. Comparable to a Svedka or similar Vodka. Obviously not as good as their Grey Goose knockoff but definitely worth the ~$15
Costco cashier said he heard the American Vodka came from Tito's.

I was in the store in Edison, NJ this afternoon and asked an associate that was working the department about the 20 year scotch. They did not have it but he said there were 2 others in today also asking about it. Must have been slickdealers.

I am not saying that Grey Goose is the best vodka out there, but what I am saying is that for the amount of vodka Kirkland provides per bottle for the price they sell it for compared to the price Grey Goose charges per bottle its a very good value. If you dont like Grey Goose obviously dont drink the Kirkland brand then.
