Wow! Booze may be the only thing that's cheaper in Japan. I can get a variety of single malts in the $30 range. Lagavulin is the most expensive I've bought at around $70.
JW Black is some tasty stuff, though. If I were dealing with those kinds of price differentials, that's probably what I'd be drinking too. As it is, The Glenlivet is my go-to scotch.
