Went to my local Costco today (Located in Fresno, California) and I did a double take. Glenlevit 12 Year Old
single malt scotch whiskey was priced at $19.99, apparently due to a $7 manufacturer instant rebate
, which goes through November 30th. This means that while liquor price may be different depending on the area, a great majority of Costcos should have it marked down by $7

You might not need a membership to purchase Alcohol at Costco, depending on local laws or if you can get a Costco Gift Card. See Wiki for details.
You'll find Glenlivet 12 Year
normally priced anywhere from $25-$60, depending on your region and sales, or if ordering online, it sits in the middle to higher end of that range when including shipping costs.

While this isn't my favorite scotch, as I like them a more smokey, it has a nice light flavor and I'd highly suggest it to those who are new to scotch drinking who might get put off by really smokey scotches. And at $19.99 a bottle, you can't go wrong.
I didn't buy any today,
and didn't snap any photos
but kissdisap did take a photo! I'll make sure to do so when I go back into town
soon. I did buy a bottle though not long ago for $26.99, and took my receipt in to have them price adjust my previous purchase (See wiki on Costco Alcohol Price Adjustment Policy
), so I got $7 back
At least around here, that's the cheapest Glenlivet has been in recent memory. Feel free to post prices and Costco locations, and I'll keep a running list in the wiki.
Thanks kissdisap for the price label picture!
