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.

Ditto for Austin Texas
The liquor stores in Texas are not owned by Costco. Unfortunately the Texas law requires only Texans can hold a liquor license.

How does this compare to Olde English 800?
Olde English has more of a distinguished taste w/ hints of hazelnut and slight tobacco aftertones. Definitely more of an after dinner drink or perhaps an 11am wakeup. The 20 year scotch malt has slight comparisons but after drinking 40 oz of it I was feeling sick to my stomach. Overall the OE 800 easily beats the Single malt in terms of something I can drink on my porch, hollering at passing women, at 9 in the morning.

LMAOI have been pouring Cutty into a Glenfarclas bottle that I have for 5 years now. Not one assclown that I have served it to has ever known the difference....I know none of you other pretentionous scotch clowns would either. That is why I am Yurmaster!!!LMAOlaugh out loudvomit
Unless they are familiar with the taste, I'm sure they wouldnt know either. Although, it's a pretty clever idea, as I'm sure they gained appreciation for Cutty's while being poured from that bottle LMAO

Have you or anyone else tried the Kirkland Bourbon? Is it a good buy?

There's a gas station about 15 minutes away that sells 1 gallon plastic jugs of vodka for $5. There's your slick deal.

Edit: Here's another link I found with rankings it's not a competition but does actually have Grey Goose included in the ranking since I don't even think Grey Goose has done a competition since Bacardi bought them.

Any specific brands and where to get them?
Try Pinnacle. It's a French vodka, they sell it at all of the liquor stores around here except for the one next to Costco.
