There's a distinctive liquor store on the Eastern Shore near Cambridge called the Wishing Well, right on Rt. 50.  Always intrigued by it, finally stopped in  Picked up a handle of Wild Turkey for around $40 and asked the clerk if he had anything special hiding under the counter, which he did.    :D

Solid selection overall, if you're headed that way and beats Virginia ABC pricing handily (except when the occasional 20% off sale is in progress).

My buddy's wife orders all the booze for the DC Costco so she pulls me a bottle of Blanton's from every shipment.


Scored another bottle for $55.00 yesterday.

On the way back from Daytona yesterday we made a side trip to the Costco at Myrtle Beach so I could check out their selections for the first time. Didn't see any Blanton's tho but I did fill up for $1.69 a gallon. SC gas pricing is ridonkulous.

Have been to that Costco many a time.  We will pass through there this weekend on the way back to FL.  Yes, gas is cheap in SC.  Although I paid $1.83 per gallon this morning at the Costco in Woodbridge VA which is a good price.

There's not a better $55 whiskey on the planet.

Great. I just bought my first bottle of Woodford and now I have to get something else. :(

Good luck finding Blantons at any price lately, much less $55.

The 20 dollar Kirkland Costco scotch is decent for its price. That’s 20 bucks for 1.5 L. The step up for 40 bucks for a handle is even better. But for something to mix or just get drunk on my porch they are great. I found the pandemic was making me race thru my expensive stuff. So this is a good substitute that won’t break me.

Blanton’s is nowhere near $55

Wishing Well has a surprisingly good selection of wine and beer.

I can’t recommend Mularkey’s distillery in Manassas highly enough. Fantastic spirits, especially their cinnamon whiskey, vodka, heritage whiskey, and smoked whiskey. Great people and products.

I didn't even see them, was dazzled and blinded by all the shiny beautiful bottles to the left.
