Just saw these at Costco in San Diego (Morena) marked down from $49.99 ($33 off) to $16.99 with no purchase quantity limit. Picked up a few dozen for office gifts and future white elephant exchanges.

Costco ID is 1401004 and there were 400-500 left as of 12/3.

Thanks OP! I braved the rain today and picked up a half dozen bottles. To clarify, it's blended scotch, located in the front of the store by the jewelry cases, and they had a whole bunch left probably hundreds. I haven't tasted it yet, but if it's decent I'll pick up a few more for gifts and stockpile. Listed for $80-90 online.

Bought a bottle to try. It's decent. Not worth $50 for sure but I'd say it's at the level of Glenlivet 12 so worth $25-$30.

Thanks and repped OP!!!

Around closing time yesterday, Morena still had probably a couple hundred left.

I'm not good at tasting notes, but I'd say there's a nice toasted pecan aroma to it, and it's quite pleasant all around - no rough edges. I'm normally more of a heavy peat single malt (ie. Lagavulin) kind of guy, but I'm definitely happy with my purchase. If you like Oban (which I might say has more of an almond taste to it), then you'll probably like this too.

Personally, I wouldn't pay $50 for it because there's a lot of competitive options at that price, but I wouldn't be disappointed at $30. Taste preferences are subjective, but at this price, I'd say you'll be hard pressed to find something better.

Isnt it the "Costco ID is 1401004" from the OP?

Vista Costco has a pallet by the front of the liquor isle. I'm drinking this now - would not pay $50, but good buy for $17. Same or better than anything I had recently had in the $25-30 range, but I prefer their single malts even if it's more expensive. And I don't see how this can retail for $90 elsewhere

I spoke to the liquor manager at my SoCal Costco today. This item is only available in the San Diego area. He said I could try as far away as Temecula but there were no guarantees.
