Re: Whisky in Washington DC
As a former DC area resident and a regular shopper of the DC stores while in town, be assured that the DC liquor prices are far less than Maryland and Virginia. The DC booze taes are far less than the taxes in MD and VA, even with a higher sales tax. The DC stores are privately run, the MD and VA stores are government-run. The DC stores actually compete against each other, hence the better prices in DC. The Monday Washington Post has the ads for the Dc stores each week. Although there are many stores in D c where I buy my scotch, I recommend Macgruder's on Conn. Avenue two blocks south of the MD line (in DC). Pearson's on Wisconsin is also a great place for decent prices, it's several blocks south of Wisconsin Ave. Central Liquors downtown on 9th street also has a large selection.
