    was in japan yesterday. price at supermarket for this ~$16

    just cracked open a 700ml bottle of Select by King Whisky - 698yen/AU$9
    Nikka 4ltr bottle of whiskey 2168yen/~$AU26

    just saying that we are getting screwed by tax.

    • Was that the 'From The Barrel' version, which is cask-strength? If so - awesome price, mate!

      I've tried this one before when I picked some up duty-free at BNE airport. A very nice drop, but because it's cask-strength most people may want to add a drop or two of water. I had a friend complain he didn't like it because it was too strong straight-up, I watered it down for him and he found it much nicer. I'm very partial to it at full strength.

    • was in japan yesterday. price at supermarket for this ~$16

      RRP in Japan is 2400yen/~AU$28 (tax excluded) and most stores price it around this. ~$16 is an extraordinary discount.

      • Nope $16 is around right.
        I was in Japan last month. Bought a bottle for the same price (around ¥1400 if memory serves me correctly)
        Mine was from Osaka in the Kuromon markets if anyone cares

    • Are you sure you didn't buy watered down whisky? Seems unlikely that it was cask strength.

      In Japan they water down their whisky to avoid tax.

      • that article is about premixed drinks e.g. same as UDL, etc.

    Nice find, Japanese whiskey is surprisingly good!
    Of course (moneywise) is better to bring it from there..

    • Japanese Whisky yes, Japanese Whiskey no

    My Nikka

    • lol I checked this post just to see if anyone had said this already :P

  • with the 15% storewide at ebay, this price isn't anything special?

    • Do you have the discount code for 15% storewide?

      • Nevermind … found it

        Code: CLICK15

      • But there is a problem though … we can't get the 15% off from Dan Murphy's eBay for this one - because it is less than $75 (i.e $74.99).

        Unless you buy 2 bottles.

        • U can add $1-$2 items from anywhere. 15% is applied to cart

  • does dan murphys price match?

    • Yes, Dan Murphy's will price-match it or even beat the price by 50 cents cheaper when you visit the store (or $1 off if you're lucky).

      The only problem is that sometimes the staff is reluctant to match the price claiming that the competitor store is not within 5 kms radius from them.

  • This is a really strong whisky at 51.4 percent. It's not to my taste, but my friend likes it.

    • Agree … but when you add a few drops of cold water, it would do the trick. :-)
