Previously in my article titled Rare Hibiki 17, Yamazaki 12 and Hakushu 12 Are Now Part of My Japanese Whisky Collection, I informed you guys that Suntory will cease or has ceased production of the Hakushu 12 Years and Hibiki 17 Years.
The Hibiki 17, nowadays, is pretty rare but it’s not impossible to get a bottle. As of June 2018, it is still easily available at Donki in Singapore. And if you are lucky like me, you may also get the Hibiki 17 at Dan Murphy’s Australia. However, as of 1st June 2018, not even a single bottle of Hibiki is being sold at Jaya Grocer Mid Valley/The Gardens KL.
On the other hand, both Yamazaki 12 Years and Hakushu 12 Years are still obtainable in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Singapore, Japan and Australia.
