Is there currently a limit or maximum allowance of declared number or measurement of alcohol (whether wine, liquor, beer) bottles/containers when traveling into the United States for American Citizens?

This question arose as I recently returned from a (Jamaican) cruise (from the Port of New Orleans) and brought back four 1 liter bottles of rum.

Or does this differ from state to state as well? As alcohol regulation is a deferred state right?

You can bring back as many as you want, however, you will only get the first liter free from duties. "The other will be dutiable at 3 percent, plus any Internal Revenue Service tax."
