My SBGJ217G Hi Beat with a new bottle of Yamazaki - weirdly the face and label colours are almost a match.

Nothing fancy, just “smooth & delicate”.

Hoping to get to Japan in the spring. I am very jealous of a lot of the bottles posted here!

Incoming SBDY033 with a Hakusha LE from the distillery shop. Demand for Japanese whisky seems to be insane - apart from these small bottles, which sold out in a few minutes, there was nothing to buy at the shop, and also no Japanese whisky of any description at Haneda duty-free. Far more stock in British supermarkets and in LHR

Picked up this little trio (just to get me through to my next trip) from three different convenience stores in Osaka. My duty free allowance was mainly given over to a couple of Big Beasts from Scotland this time. Wore my GS SBGT235 as I usually do for travelling

Thanks, it's the cover of a huge new Criterion set of the Showa Era Godzilla movies. There's pages of great artwork in there: https://www.criterion.com/boxsets/26...ilms-1954-1975
