Which mixer goes best with this Coke or Dr Pepper?

Now i need an ebay code more than ever... 😋
It was less than £90 nearly as late as 2015, what caused it to spike over 4 times the price?!
17 years, too old. What's best before date?
If I was a whisky guzzling hipster I would be rustling for my wallet right now. As I am not the aforementioned, rather a whisky guzzling price/quality ratio conscience drinker I’m laughing at the statement that this is never coming back. It’s been gone for about 7 years, given that is only 17 years old, you do the math.
Heat good price
Many whisky connesurs cannot tell the difference between Japanese whisky and Speyside whisky. Get an 18 year old Speyside for £80 and laugh at the crazies paying 5x the price.

(I just know some irate Japanese lovers will come along furious now, but then again it says its blended!)

Can you imagine how much sensational whisky you can buy for £400. I could buy 10 bottles that are better whisky for the same £400 as this competent at best 17 year old whisky bottled at an very uninspiring 43%....

Iron bru obviously!
Bought this for £200 3 years ago, some places it is selling for £600.

Also, the reason I believe it's value increased is something to do with the nuclear disaster that happened in Japan several years ago.

What? Poppycock! It’s nowhere near Fukushima. It’s called marketing and a film called lost in translation. Made Japanese whisky cool overnight. Before, no one would touch it.
Anyone wants to pay this much for Japanese whisky go for it. Its ridiculous for a product which is at times good, but not that good!

"so what got you sent down to hell?"
"I mixed my 17 year old hibiki with lemon Fanta."
There is only one place in the world to buy real whisky. The price doesnt matter.
"With each award both the price and demand for the Hibiki 21 has risen, making the 17 the last of the current Hibiki aged range that could be bought at a price that wouldn't break the bank. This is expected to change now that Suntory has decided to stop producing the expression, amidst shortages of aged stock."

Probably went out of stock before they ceased making it, which then caused the price to skyrocket. Whisky is always a supply and demand commodity, but it's unique in that they can't just make any more that's been aged for x years overnight.

Japan does make some cracking whiskies, the rest of the world woke up to that, started buying it like never before and suddenly there isn't enough aged stock left to make 17 year old blends etc, which is why they've stopped making this and quite a few others.
Wish they would bring the Suntory premium malts beer over too
How can anybody justify spending this much on a bottle of (admittedly rare and quality) whisky? What am I missing guys?

Investment. It’s about picking the right bottle at the right time. I picked up a limited edition bottle last month for £280 that’s already flipping for £2k on the secondary market
so this is not to drink, it's like vintage wine?
