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.

Anyone on the fence I'll say this is good scotch. It's very textbook sherry finished Speyside. I compared it to my open bottle of Balvenie Double Wood 12 year, and the Kirkland is better for the same money. It's richer and more complex. The age is giving it the edge for sure, the DW is rough around the edges in comparison. The Kirkland is pretty syrupy and easy drinking, I'd say it's a bit too easy for me, but a lot of people would probably like the laid back nature of it. My guess is that some air time is going to help this bottle, because I felt it was a bit closed off. My DW got better with air too. It's a no brainer for $45. It's an especially nice dram for noobs since it's so textbook and easy to drink neat. It's a nice taste of mature scotch that doesn't require the normal cash outlay.

I agree with this completely. Thanks OP, picked up 3 bottles of the 20 and one of the 15 yesterday. The extras will make great Christmas presents.

None at the Wayne Costco in NJ which does sell Kirkland branded alcohol (as opposed to the one in Clifton where the liquor store is 3rd party).

Wish that they sold this at Texas Costco stores. I guess I'll see if my niece in California can find some and bring it for Christmas.

Decided to drive to irvine for it. Yeah I had nothing to do on a Sunday Smilie. The lady at Carlsbad doing the liquor show told me they may not even get it. Who knows if she knew what she was talking about though, she just kinda snobbishly said "if it exists it comes to Carlsbad". It almost seems that San Diego will eventually get it since the district had both 15 and 20 yo. Funny how the 15 is displayed out of the box whilst the 20 yo just remains in the case for slim pickin's.
