I notice, based on posts here on b&b, that scotch prices vary quite a bit in the USA based on state or region?
Why? Taxes? Demand? Sales volume? Distribution?
I live in California and shop at bevmo and Costco for scotch and these are the prices I pay:
Lagavulin 16 on sale at Costco $56
Glenlivet 12 Costco $22
Glenlivet 18 sale bevmo $56
Glenlivet 21 sale bevmo $134
Glenmorangie 10 bevmo $36
Bruchladdich rocks bevmo $45
Bruichladdich 12 bevmo $60ish
Highland park 12 costco $36
JW black $25
All of the above are for 750ml in the last 6 months and does not include sales tax of 9%.
What are others paying?
