    Wanting to try some Japanese whisky, particularly interested in 'Nikka whisky from the barrel'. Don't mind ordering online and waiting if it works out cheaper. I'm totally new to this so can someone point me in the right direction?

    Haha I’m sure it would be but I don’t see myself flying over there anytime soon. I could try importing them from japan but shipping costs and taxes would probably add up to more than what you’d pay locally

    Have you used Boozle before?

    Cheapest found there was $75 from Dan Murphy’s Online.

    Agreeed, used to get Yamazaki under a hundred now it’s double that and it isn’t close to value at that price

    They regularly have discounts on offer but I would think Boozebud would be a great place to get Japanese whiskys. Not any currently on offer but they have a category for it and I think when they widen the range they will be listing more. Just keep an eye on it for future reference.
