If you are HIBIKI Lover, you can get this one for $199.00 with No Tax but you need to pay for shipping.

I love me some Hibiki, but the price keeps going up. Wish they brought back the Yamazaki 12 or even the Hibiki 12. I still have several Hibiki Harmony's I need to get through though.

Those days are gone. I wish Costco can carry Hibiki 12 just once more time. $59.99 is cheapest price I've ever since from 2019. Another supermarket is selling $99 to $109.

I'm a simple man that just enjoys Suntory Toki for occasional highball, but my bro gifted me Hibiki 21 last year and I sip on it for special occasions. What is this one good for? May go to local Costco and pick some up for him and friends that drink Japanese whiskey way more than I do. Also, if you're interested in helping with research please PM me; I have a friend in Tokyo that works for Kirin who's been asking my friends and friends of friends on early market research on expanding to US liquor market.

this one usually is $79.99 and often out of stock. it's like the 21 year just less mature so less smooth. but it's 80% there. whiskey the higher price ones are at an exponential scale in terms of improvement. the more you age a whisky the less the bad characteristics show up. i've been dying to get my hands on some Suntory Chita. i'm also a fan of suntory hakushu whenever it shows up at costco.

Hibiki is excellent whisky made by Suntory. This is probably the best non-aged blended japanese whisky that you can find.

As a whole, Japanese is very Scotch-like. If you enjoy lightly peated Scotches, then you may also enjoy Japanese whiskey. Hibiki Harmony is just a basic blend, nothing special other than it's cool bottle. The age-stated bottlings like the 12, 17, 21 and 30 are much better imo. You get more depth of flavor to them the older they get.

I typically see this bottling at most stores here for about $80 and after having it a few times, I just leave it sitting. Grab a bottle of Balvenie 12 Doublewood for a similar experience for less money and it's almost always available. Cheers

Most Japanese whiskies are similar to Scotch in style and flavor. It's been distilled there since the 1800s, but just gained popularity globally in the past 20 years, or so.

10 years ago, Japanese whisky was a great, affordable alternative to pricey Scotch. But in recent years, because of its trendiness, it's become just as expensive as good Scotch, which kinda defeats the original appeal.

But at this price, it's 100% worth it. (It's a little brighter and lighter than most Scotches, but same ball park style-wise.)

Brand-wise, it comes from Suntory which is not only the largest distiller, but the largest beverage company, period, in Japan. Think if Coca-Cola also made liquor and beer, that'd be Suntory. So it's not some small, artisanal distillery, but because it's a mega-corp the quality control is excellent.

You're right. It's been mostly $65 at my local Costco when I've seen it the past year. Doesn't fly off the shelves like other rare stuff like Yamakazi, but it sells out within a day or two. $60 is a good price. I think I paid $55-$59 back in 2019, when I last stocked up on several bottles. I drank a lot during the pandemic, but we were trying different stuff since we drank so often. Peace

FYI, if you have a beer/wine steward at your local Costco, see if they'll add you to their contact list. Our guy here (SF Bay Area) sends us a message when he has good stuff in.
