Just received word about 40 minutes from posting this and stopped by my local in Bay Area, CA. Looks like they have about 30's on hand in select warehouses.

If you're in the Bay Area, there's stock in Hayward, Redwood City, South SF (i think SFO), Almaden, and Automation.

Item Number: 763242

Is there anyway to check local inventory without calling?

Did you end up with any? Currently in the parking lot. My conversation with employee Edward.
Me: I was told you guys received Yamasaki 12 in today
Ed: (paused, awkward silence) um, who told you that
Me: a group of ppl
Ed: (another pause) nah, we didn't get any
Ed: if we did it would be next to the Japanese whiskeys

Got mines about 10-15 mins ago from Automation. They're limiting 1pp. Another fellow whisky enthusiast was there as well so -2 to the inventory. No idea how many is left since it is all being stored in the merch pickup area. Did see 3 cases of normal Hibiki in their storage so there is plenty of that.

Yeah I was probably the 3rd person and the cashiers just found out when I asked and they were pushing the cart shipment to pickup area.

The friend who collected 5 was in a different location. They told him they didn't have any and he made them look it up to find out it is there.

XD good work from your friend. I had just came back from JP and it definitely is scarce there as well. I was seeing stores marking this up to $200 US dollars.

You got me excited since I missed the last Hibiki stock. Went to Costco in Irvine, CA. Couldn't find it on the shelves. Had them check their computer no stock here or in the neighboring OC/LA stores.
Any idea how far up into LA they checked?

They go for $200+ on Ebay, and will only go up over time.

He bought 12 bottles. I guess there is no limit. I plan to buy a few of them as gifts, so hopefully I don't have to make 2 trips.
