Still no stock in NSW
I just bought one shipped to NSW
Oof these Japanese whiskey prices keep getting steeper…
Yeah, don't get me wrong Hibiki is really nice, but the NAS version is definitely not a $140 whisky.
Couldn't agree more. I genuinely like this whisky, but there are better VALUE drops out there.
Which ones do you recommend? I was going to buy this but saw these comments and was curious :D
@SammyB: Personally - I like to wait for sales, especially the ebay plus ones… Also, remember that everyone will have different tastes - i am not a huge fan of peaty whisky.. More towards sherry / port / bourbon casks.
I recently stocked up on the ebay plus sales and saved about $80 across Upshot, Eagle Rare and Starward Nova. None are particularly great, but for the savings, they were/are nice easy drinkers..
First choice have a good deal on Talisker at the moment - but it's not my cup of tea.
PS - Difference between JW Green and Aberlour == 2 glasses of Johnnie will give me a headache the next day… I can drink Aberlour 12 all night and not get a headache…. Aberlour A'Bundah is better but rarely cheap.
Aberlour 12 - online price @ $74
Woodford Double Oaked @$69
"Sorry, there is insufficient stock for your cart."
Same as when this deal was listed a few days ago. No stock. Called a store in Melbourne and they checked every store - no stock.
$10 more than Yesterday and no stock.
I’m so pleased that there is demand for these
Japanese whiskies at exorbitant prices that I can pick up my favourite islay scotch at cheaper prices , go jap whiskies ;)
Holy moly has the price of Japanese whiskey shot through the roof? I'm fairly sure I bought a bottle of this a few years ago in Japan to bring back for around $50.
Equivalent price in Japan now is probably 5-5.5k yen so around $75. Will cost more here with having to import it in and our local taxes adding $87/100% of alcohol ($37 here) and also GST (call it $10). But overall yes, prices are still going up!
It's almost impossible to find a bottle of Hibiki in the big metro areas in Japan at the moment. I found a bottle in a regional city down south and RRP was around 8000, which is over AU$100.
Yeah the demand is obviously outweighing the supply. Gone are the days 6 years ago when I was drinking Hibiki 17 for like $100!
I got hibiki 21 unopened limited edition. I heard i can sell it for 800-1k aud
