Killer Deal at K&L on Award-Winning PC6

Looks like K&L is trying to make room for PC7: The price was $129.99, now it’s $89.99. The thing is, PC6 is AWESOME and is easily worth the higher price. You should probably consider using some of that Christmas money to get a bottle before they are gone.

Such a Deal I Have for You!

I was at the Costco in Redwood City, CA yesterday and I always look over their liquor selection whenever I am in the store. I found the Glenlivet Nadurra 16 a few months back for $42. That was before it won a bunch of awards. That was a pretty good deal: Beltramo’s has it listed today for $49.89, and their prices are usually good, so Costco’s price was comparable (especially since I’d expect a lower price at a discount store).

Yesterday I saw a stunningly good price on a lovely holiday gift: The Glenlivet Master Distiller’s Deluxe Tasting Kit for $75.99. As you can see if you follow that link (sorry…no picture), the comparable price is over $100.

The kit contains:

  • One bottle of Glenlivet Nadurra 16
  • One bottle of Glenlivet French Oak Reserve 15
  • Two George G. Smith nosing/tasting glasses (Glencairn-style)

George G. Smith was the founder of The Glenlivet distillery in 1824.

This item is clearly a good deal: The current price of the Glenlivet French Oak Reserve 15 at Beltramo’s is $37.89, so the price of the whisky alone in this gift package is $87.78, without including the cost of the glasses. Similar crystal Glencairn-style nosing/tasting glasses at the Malt Advocate‘s web site cost $25 a pair. My best guess is that retail price of this gift package’s contents, if purchased separately, would be about $110 (in line with the link above; so this package is discounted at about 30%).

Contact me by email if you want to send me one of these gift packages. 🙂 In all seriousness, make sure you take advantage of this offer and share a couple of excellent single malts with someone you care about.
