This for above 18 only (or 21 only, age rules in your state mary vary YMMV)
Costco in San Fran [in other cities as well, YMMV
] has good prices on whiskey (could be in other cities hence the YMMV, I have attached a picture for you to price out), Blended Japanese whiskey, I have been paying 120 to 150 for the 12 and 15 yrs Hibiki on these whiskey, this is a great deal for regulars.
IMHO : This Whiskey is very smooth and matches the Blue label, now what makes it better is that its single malt, unlike the blue labels which are blended event at the 189/ltr price point.

, however when you click on the link the price is 72$, and then shipping + taxes brings is way over ~40$ more, so this is clearly cheaper!
