    Re: Whiskey prices on the rise again

    In Ohio the following prices apply:

    Jim Beam black 18.90
    Elijah Craig 19.00
    Knob Creek 29.70
    Makers mark 23.80
    Wild Turkey 19.80
    Van Winkle Lot B N/A

    All of these prices include sales tax. The Elijah Craig and Jim Beam black are reularly on sale anywhere from 1.50 to 2.00 cheaper. WT drops somewhat in Nov. and Dec. for the holidays and Makers Mark and Knob Creek are rarily on sale. Makers Mark seems to inch up in price every couple of months

    Re: Whiskey prices on the rise again

    These are WA State prices. I think the prices have fluctuated a little up and down, but nothing so dramatic that I have paid attention to it yet.

    Jim Beam Black $21.95
    EC 12 $19.75
    Knob Creek $32.95
    Makers $25.95
    WT 101 $22.95
    VW 12 Currently can't get it...but I think it was $40.00 last time I was able to get it. The 15 was around $45 last time it was here and the 20 is going for $85.15.

    I agree that all of those EXCEPT the Van Winkle 12. Can't touch that out here for less than $40.

    Re: Whiskey prices on the rise again

    With whiskey, as with any other luxury potable/edible (expensive cuts of meat, fresh seafood etc.) If it goes up in price and I want it I'll economize in other areas to make room in the family budget.

    I'd much rather pay more for the same products I now buy than pay the same for watered down or in some cases younger and or less choice versions!

    Life is too short to forgo those luxuries I can afford.

    Re: Whiskey prices on the rise again

    Everyone that isn't, should be thankful that they aren't scotch drinkers. One used to be able to purchase Macallan 18 yr for 40 bucks + tax just 10-11 years ago. The price before tax now runs around 150. I suppose if you can afford it, and have a huge passion for the stuff, the near 400% markup hasn't phased you. As for me, I haven't purchased a bottle of scotch in over 5 years. Here's to hoping bourbon never goes through even 100% markup in 10 years time!

    Re: Whiskey prices on the rise again

    The prices for scotch are supposed to go up at least 10% by year end due to demand. I look for bourbon to follow the same trend as most of the big drinks companies that own scotch brands have bourbon brands as well. A good place to load up on whiskey is the duty free stores. I generally have good luck at the duty free stores going to and from Canada. My wife and her sister like to go to the casinos while I like to go solely to load up on whiskey at the duty free. Many of the Irish brands are also a good deal if you are into that category!

    I have not been to Canada since last September.
    Since then I think I heard that you now need a passport to cross over.
    Is that true?

    Only if flying. They keep pushing back the date for implementation, because the State Department has a several-months' backlog of passport applications.
