    Yes. Yes. Yes and yes. I actually always have a 1.75L bottle of Black on hand and it goes over well with friends who want a little extra taste but don't want to be bowled over by their whisky. I would never buy a bottle of Blue at the price it goes for around here, but I did stand in line behind a guy who bought two cases of it recently when Binny's was having a 15% off sale on all spirits. Even with the discount it wouldn't be worth it to me.

    Well, if you're ever curious about sherried scotches, Glendronach Revival is a good example of a balanced one, much different from the Macallan CS. Not my cup of tea-colored whisky, but I'll admit it's good.

    Just got done reading this month's Consumer Reports tonight and Costco blew away the competition.

    It's now official....I'm switching from Sam's Club to Costco.
    costco's pricing is regional. i've read about the prices costco charges for sm's in other markets (usually california). not the case here in texas. no big difference with the major liquor chains.
