A few days ago, I wrote that I had some Yamazaki Single Malt Whiskey in the ANA lounge in Haneda. When the whiskey was finished, the staff brought out a new bottle of Hakushu Single Malt whiskey. Both whiskeys are excellent. Incidentally, I purchased one bottle of each whiskey in the Duty Free shopping area. Both cost Y3000 each and that’s about P1320.
When I went window-shopping around Metro Manila, I was pleasantly surprised to find two retailers selling said Japanese single malt whiskeys. One big retailer was selling it for P6000 a bottle while the Japanese store was selling it for about P4200 a bottle. Moral of the story is if one ever passes by Japan, buy the single malt whiskey there. Big difference in price!
