    Both seem to have gotten hard to find, at least in the few places I shop. I have the Yamazaki but haven't seen the Hibiki in a while. Used to be pretty common. Rumor was the tsunami affected availability but I have no way to confirm that.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Id take the Yamazaki over the Hibiki each and every day. I would take the Nikka Yoichi over both of them combined, however. My fave of the Japanese so far.

    Had a finger pour of some Yamazaki 1984 today. Mind-blowing, with sherry fruitiness over a warming barley heat and a perfectly balanced, everlasting finish. The bartender caught me licking the inside of my upturned glass. Best Japanese I've had yet. Itching to try the Hibiki 21, and Yoichi if I come across it.

    Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    Bought a Talisker 18. The price was nice, and I liked my last bottle. Tempted to "stock up".

    JW Green just because of the word it may disappear and the good reviews. I have never tried it so hopefully it will prove to be a sound purchase.

    If you like the Black the Green is a treat.
