If you're driving, the land crossings seem to have the cheapest prices, around $70 USD.

I've seen bottles recently in SFO, LAX, YVR, JFK, SYD, HKG, SIN, and I'm sure they are in a lot more...

Itís a mix of world whiskies. I think I might pass at that price.
The Peninsula also released an exclusive Ichiro bottling this week, limited to 300 bottles. Not sure how much it's going for but saw some people reselling for $2.5k

I have seen Hibiki and Yamazaki NAS once in the arrivals hall at Changi some time in the past year. Everything was gone in 60 secs.

I don't visit SIN more than about once a month (and never see the bottles any more), but I pass by the duty free at HKG on a weekly basis and haven't seen any Hibiki or Yamazaki NAS since at least a year ago from what I can recall. It's silly really.

This was around December. Quite possible they sell out quickly but they definitely still get stocks.

Yamaya still stocks Y12 minis at •780

Good luck on the H17 minis, Park Hyatt Tokyo minibar seems to be the only place I see them now, still not a terrible deal at •3000 after taxes
