I notice, based on posts here on b&b, that scotch prices vary quite a bit in the USA based on state or region? Why? Taxes? Demand? Sales volume? Distribution? I live in California and shop at bevmo and Costco for scotch and these are the prices I pay: Lagavulin 16 on sale at Costco $56 Glenlivet 12 Costco $22 Glenlivet 18 sale bevmo $56 Glenlivet 21 sale bevmo $134 Glenmorangie 10 bevmo $36 Bruchladdich rocks bevmo $45 Bruichladdich 12 bevmo $60ish Highland park 12 costco $36 JW black $25 All of the above are for 750ml in the last 6 months and does not include sales tax of 9%. What are others paying?
