  1. The closest I've seen is a 200ml.

      Thank you-this is for a gift. Do you know of a website where i can find the 200ml size?

    2. To the best of my knowledge, it is available in the United States ONLY in 750ml and 200ml sizes.

      BevMo in Sac has the 750ml size available for $169.99. I honestly do not know if they carry the 200ml size; it is not shown on their website. On the high side, I've seen Johnnie Walker Blue for as much as $199.99 -- again, for the 750ml.

      Sorry I can't be of more help, but a phone call to the BevMo on Arden should at least answer if they carry the 200ml . . .

        More importantly, is it worth $169.99? I've not yet tried the blue, but I've had red, black, green, and gold, and wouldn't pay anywhere near that for any of them... Is blue really that much better? Given, of course, the totally subjective nature of this question!

          For me? No. It's not worth the price. But is it really, really good? Yes. (But I'd rather buy a bottle of Macallan 18, or better yet, some really great Cognac, Armagnac, or Calvados!)

            I agree completely - it's very good but overpriced. I'd rather buy two bottles of Lagavulin 16 or Clynelish or Highland Park. Heck, for the price you could even get a Port Ellen or Brora.

              Add me to the list of people who would much rather have a couple of (excellent) bottles at half the price.

            I've tasted it before, and it is really really good. Much better than their others. But I'm with Jason here: for the price, there are other things I'd rather have.

        2. I have tried it on a cruise ship liquor tasting. I am no connoisseur of Scotch but I know I did not like the JW Blue.

          1. Just on the JW note, my local Costco has JW Green Label for 40.99 right now, in a wood gift box. At that price, IMO it's worth it.

            1. Blue is a showy priced sip, good to the taste but out priced compared to other great scotches....
