Chinese buyer books US$200,000 whisky at Singapore duty free!!!

A Chinese businessman has put down a deposit for a rare bottle of whisky costing nearly US$200,000 at a duty-free shop in Singapore’s Changi airport, an airport spokesman said Monday.

With a price tag of S$250,000 (US$199,400) the 62-year-old bottle of Dalmore single malt is reportedly one of the most expensive ever sold.

The buyer spotted the bottle on display and quickly made a deposit of S$100,000 by bank transfer, Changi Airport Group spokesman Ivan Tan told AFP.

 “It’s one of only 12 bottles in the world,” Tan said. He described the buyer as a “frequent visitor to Singapore”, but declined to give more details. Full story...
