Suntory Hibiki 17 Whisky Discontinued!
Forbes reports that the Suntory Hibiki 17 will be discontinued as of September 2018.
From September 2018 the Hibiki 17 will gradually be removed from the core range, and production will stop.
The Hibiki 12 Year-Old was sadly discontinued in 2015
Due to several awards, both the price and demand for the Hibiki 21 has risen. 
We found the Suntory Hibiki 17 for $140, while the 21 was about $251.
We featured the Hibiki 17 on Nerds Drink Whiskey in July of 2016, and it has remained an all time favorite.
We mourn the loss of this great whisky. 
For Forbes (much more in depth) version of this story:

What we know about Bill And Ted Face The Music so far:
It's thankfully NOT a reboot!
The story is about them not writing the song that saves the world yet.
Bill's daughter Thea and Ted’s daughter Billie help them.
They now have a 24 hour deadline to write that song.
They try to steal the song from their future selves. 
They're middle aged, their wives (the princesses), are now working double shifts at Denny’s, and they're poor.
The humor is not cynical, snarky, or dark. So they still have a sense of innocence. 
The budget is not that big.
They still want to 'Party on dudes!'
They still want us to 'Be excellent to each other.'

In Whiskey news:
Rock legend and icon Bob Dylan will launch his own series of three whiskeys. The band news? It's being done through Angel's Envy, the most boring whiskey we have ever reviewed on this show. Will Mr Dylan's whiskey be as bland and uneventful? Should he have stuck with his original brand name of "Bootleg whiskey" instead of his new name "Heaven’s Door Spirits?" Time will tell if the straight rye, straight bourbon, or the “double-barreled” whiskey will be as tasty as his music has.
