    Japanese whiskies have rocketed up in price. I have a bottle of Taketsuru 12 year old that I bought 5 years ago for $100 at Dan Murphy's. It's now $350 and sold out.

    • i purchased the whiskey OP has posted in japan for about $70 aud in 2018. its nuts.

      • Yes same and this one wasn't too bad.

      I agree prices have definitely inflated, you can probably get a better value whiskey at that price point. Demand is outstripping supply and most of the old range is being discontinued.

        I remember reading in 2015 that Japanese distilleries were discontinuing age statements, so I went out and bought a bottle. But now that the price has inflated so much I have two conflicting feelings. I don't want to drink anything costing $350. It violates my Ozbargain feels. But I also wish I had purchased more.

    Why people would pay $200 for "blended", "12 yr old" whiskey is beyond me. The finish on most jap whiskey aren't even that great especially for the money.

      Its a sad day when a drink of whiskey has been turned capitalist. I almost feel like this rush buying of jap whiskey is like the FOMO in the stock market.

      This is perfectly describing blue label..

    This is not a good drop, nor a good price.

    Nikka make some great whisky, this isn't one of them. Go pick up the straight from the barrel, or any of their single malts over this.

  • Some Japanese whiskies are not even made in Japan. Research before you pay inflated prices.
    I bought a few bottles in Japan for $30 last year which are selling $100+ here. Good drum but $100+, too many better drums.
    $200 can get you 18 or 21 to, or some cask strength or distillery versions, real Scotch.

    Impressive, more or less on par with the cost of getting this in Japan.

  • I have this whisky in my collection. It's really light, not my preference of choice.

  • Can anyone recommend a decent Japanese whisky to try which doesn't cost so much?

    Been quite a fan of Makers 46 which is quite reasonable for the price.

      Nikka FTB. Usually runs 75-80$, good drop and is cask strength.

      • Thank you, will give it a go.

  • Nikka Black is my fav. Bought this by accident while I was in Japan, it’s so clear, almost taste like water at 37% alc, a pallet cleanser between diff whiskies. Again, cost is a fraction in Japan compared to pricing here.

  • Japanese whiskey with an age statement are now overpriced. And the price does not reflect the taste nor the experience other than a lightened pocket.
