    Best Places to Buy Scotch

    Hi folks!!

    I live in MI and my access to scotch whiskey is very limited and some times very expensive.

    Since I travel a lot for work I was wondering if you could share your favorite places to find good scotch at a decent price.

    Thanks, Rene'

    Where do you travel?

    There are many great on-line retailers that have Scotch. Two of the best are:

    Binny's www.binnys.com
    Hi-Time Wine www.hitimewine.com

    Shoppers Viineyard in New Jersey has some decent scotch too. Also, depending on how close to Detroit you are, cross the bridge or go through the tunnel to Canada and check out the duty free stores. They sometimes have some nice duty free only bottles!

    I love the selection at Binny's but need to get a friend to buy it for me. I am planning a trip to Chicago soon.

    Never heard of Hi-Time, thx!!!!

    There's a great store The Boozer turned me on to in Bloomfield Hills. They have a great selection of Scotch, and actually sell the BTAC at state minimum (shocking).

    It's called Hills and it's at 41 W Long Lake rd., just west of Woodward.

    Anyway, if you go to Indianapolis ever, Vine & Table in Carmel and Kahn's at 52nd and Keystone both have decent selections.

    I have no problem finding even the rarest scotch, if only I could say the same for bourbon!

    There must be some sort of solution to both our problems!?

    Re: Best Places to Buy Scotch

    When I was in San Fran, the place to get good scotch (which I did) was BevMo. They had a great selection and fairly decent prices. The best prices by far I've found thus far though is in the New Hampshire state run liquor stores (20-30% cheaper but selection is wanting).
    Whisk(e)y - a bargain at any price !!!

    I would never have thought of that, I wonder if anyone would be interested in such an exchange?
