Checked the stores in the Northern Illinois region but nothing was available. The inventory checker said there were several in southern Wisconsin and Northwestern Indiana with a few hundred bottles on hand, but they can't ship them. From what I could see, the stores that had them in the Midwest all had 300+ on hand with more incoming, and those that didn't weren't ordering any in the near future.
Why would you drink anything with a Kirkland label on it?
Because if you want this same 20 YO Scotch with the real name on it the price would be at least doubled. Most large retailers do this on various items and call it there store brand. Its still made mostly by the brand name makers of the item, the stores just buys in bulk for resell.
Picked up a bottle at the new costco in DC. It's good, but not as good as my 21 year old Glenlivet. I'd say it's on par with a good 12 year old bottle of Balvenie that costs a similar amount. It's smooth, but doesn't have as full a flavor as the glenlivet 21. It's got a bit of initial bite. Overall, I can't complain for the price. It's also only 40% ABV which is low for a scotch.
The depot responsible for the East Bay in Northern CA didn't even have it in and was supposed to today. Maybe it came in this afternoon or it will come in tomorrow and will then be disbursed to various Costcos. This is directly from a supe's mouth at the Danville, CA Costco. She said look for it next week. Danville is getting 500 bottles so don't freak out.
