That 1920 goes for $62/btl pre-tax in WA.

I just picked up a couple of bottles from a local store for $104 out the door... which sadly feels like a steal.

For WA, that’s a great deal all-in with the extra vig they collect on liquor.

Yes. Just nuts, considering I’ve picked up the special release for $19.99 here. I brought in a shot (in a vial) of Willet 4 for my wine/beer guy as a thank you.

Nice Andrew.

For reference I think we sell them for about $25 wholesale, if I'm reading it right $104 for both would be great.

Purchased at a local store, but definitely NOT for retail prices. A splurge for the holidays.

If anybody is getting hit with mark ups for Weller special Reserve and Antique I’d be willing help get some to you at cost. They arrive here fairly regularly now, regular bottles and 1.5’s. I think they are just under 25-30 pre tax. Might prefer the opportunity to trade for beer/whisky that not available here...

Anyone know if BTAC and Pappy will be dropping soon in WA state? Also why are we the last state to get anything?

Ever follow overpricedbourbon on Instagram? WA liquor stores are on it regularly for head shaking prices, Costco is on for good prices, albeit the taxes after the fact are brutal regardless of their fair starting margin.

The more whisky thay goes to Kroger/Safeway/Costco the fairer the prices are marked up and close to MSRP....caveat the taxes don't let them get close after the till. Safeway and Kroger eat the 17% which helps consumers and Costco works at 10-13% so they are doing what they can, but you can't get around liter or spirits sales tax at register.

Picked up some Willett Pot Still at $53.99 yesterday at QFC (Sammamish). Kills me to see it discounted down to $40 in CA... but at least I’m seeing it now?

Have seen High West Midwinter recently at Whole Foods. K&L has blown through two batches in the past few weeks, put it on your email alerts if interested.

Bought a few bottles of Bulleit Barrel Strength @ $20 per earlier this year at Costco (Summerlin, Las Vegas). Angel's Envy @ $38.

Saw some of those at the local costco. Can’t recall price. That bottle annoys me though. It’s like the la gardine bottle of whiskey
