Prices of Hibiki Japanese Harmony and Yamazaki 12 Keep Going Up

Today, 31st May 2019, I was shocked to see the prices of Hibiki Japanese Harmony and Yamazaki 12 Years at Dan Murphys Melbourne outlet. For the pass 2  years, the price of Japanese Whisky in Australia was relatively lower than Malaysia and elsewhere but I guess that is changing and now catching up with the rest of the world.

In April 2019, I managed to secure 3 bottles of the Hibiki Japanese Harmony from Dan Murphys for just AUD119.99 per bottle.

I have not been really buying Yamazaki 12 Years for months as I don’t really enjoy them. However back in May 2018, I only paid AUD179.95 to AUD199.99 per bottle at Dan Murphys.

As of 1st June 2019

The Hibiki Harmony price has increased 25% since April 2019. Maybe this is acceptable since the AUD has been weakening. On the other hand, the Yamazaki 12 Years price has increased a whopping 50% (from AUD199.99 in May 2018 to AUD299.99 in June 2019)!!!

I tell you, if you have a bottle of Yamazaki 12 Years, you better don’t open it and you would most probably make some money in a couple years time. As for the Hibiki Harmony, if you love it, you better start to stockpile before the prices increase further.
