    Please tell me that they don't add the 9% regular sales tax on top of all that.
    Most stores only display the before tax prices along with signs stating the tax scheme. A few stores make it a point to show you the "out the door" price.

    No, that's the total tax. The standard sales tax is rolled into it.

    The prices in WA were so brutal, I just went to see Andrew at Liberty on Cap Hill for the good stuff....cuz after all, what's better than dope whiskey and sushi!?!?! If you don't know Liberty and you live in Seattle, go fix that immediately!

    I will not shop there due to their asinine pricing and I actively encourage others to do the same. $90 for a HW 21 375ml bottle? Whistlepig 111 at $156? Masterson's 10 at $91? (Prices are before the 20.5% tax).

    Seattle and Washington Area Thread

    Esquin's prices are not much better than Wine World.

    I wish nothing but financial ruin upon both of them. Hopefully, Total Wine moves to Seattle proper and makes this happen.

    Seconded. Canon is an experience, but an expensive one. Liberty, it's been my experience, has a more generous pour and they're very much into the idea of educating you and learning from you.

    Thirded. The prices at Canon are stupid - at $45 a pour for Single Oak Project or $60 Pappy 20, I think he must be buying his whiskey from Wine World. Liberty gets my vote, and business.

    Want to talk about some stupid pricing? Check out Brouwer's in Fremont. They're known for their incredible beer selection and, apparently, their odd bourbon/rye pricing. Also, they're 1.5-ounce pours seem pretty damn small.

    Knob Creek: $11
    Baker's: $13
    Blanton's: $14
    Black Maple Small Batch: $15
    Pappy Van Winkle 15-Year $17
    George T. Stagg: $17
    William Larue Weller: $18
    Whistle Pig: $18
    Hudson's Manhattan Rye: $23
