1. Hibiki Japanese Harmony Suntory Whisky

If Bill Murray drinks it, it must be good. Hibiki is the Japanese whiskey that the actor drinks in his movie Lost in Translation. And if this is not enough reason for you to own a bottle, the great taste will convince you.

2. Yamazaki Distillery Reserve Single Malt Whisky

4. Nikka Taketsuru Non Age

Another Nikka whiskey is the Taketsuru. It is 17 years old and just as intense in flavor. The notes of toffee, mocha and hazelnut make the taste experience even more mature.

5. Suntory Hakushu Reserve Single Malt Whisky

Another classic is the Hakushu Single Malt. It is similar to the Yamazaki Whisky since both are a single malt. However special about this one is the delicate and fruity note.

6. Karuizawa (silent) 15 year old Whisky

Finally here is the hot deal. This Japanese whiskey can be purchased for only £629.95. But it even gets better. In Hong Kong, a whiskey of this brand was sold for $ 118.500. The cheapest you can get is a few $ 100. And let it be said that it is worth it.

7. Karuizawa (silent) - Scotch Malt Whisky Society

The reason that the Karuizawa whiskeys sell for such high prices is simple. The distillery is no longer active, so it is "silent", which makes the whiskey a rarity.

8. Ichiro's Malt Mizunara Wood Reserve Blended Malt Whisky

Whiskey in Japan can get very old, but there are also some new ones. Ichiro is the latest whiskey brand in Japan and already has a stunning reputation. After all, the producers come from a legendary family whose drinks heritage can be traced back to the 17th century.

9. Hanyu (silent) 14 year old Whisky

In case you're wondering why whiskey is such a big thing in Japan. The whiskey history goes back almost 100 years. The first whiskey distillers began to manufacture in the 1930s and since then has become a form of art. This Hanyu whiskey is another result of this art.
