Glenglassaugh’s Reawakened Spirit
Glenglassaugh is introducing a new era with a revitalized portfolio and updated design, aligning seamlessly with Singapore’s tropical climate and the coastal setting of the whisky. The flagship 12-year-old single malt, representing Glenglassaugh’s distinctive coastal style, is featured prominently with a new design reflecting sea grass tones to capture the essence of the coastal environment. Additionally, two new whiskies, Sandend and Portsoy, embody the rich coastal essence of Glenglassaugh. Sandend, influenced by the crescent beach of Sandend Bay, undergoes maturation in bourbon, sherry, and manzanilla casks, creating a tropical sweetness with a hint of sea salt. Portsoy, named after the nearby harbour village, showcases a robust and deeply maritime flavour profile stemming from its richly peated single malt matured in sherry, bourbon, and port casks.
Champagne Lombard Brut Nature
Indulge in the Champagne Lombard Brut Nature Grand Cru Blanc de Blanc. With 50% Chardonnays sourced from Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, experience a refreshing and mineral character. The inclusion of Chouilly and Cramant adds a rounded quality, while Avize contributes finesse and elegance. Available at a discounted price of S$78 (originally S$98) at Bottles and Bottles.
Champagne Lombard presents a ‘Terroir’ collection, and within it, you’ll find the Brut Nature Verzenay Grand Cru Lieu Dit ‘Les Corettes.’ Despite its complex name, this Blanc de Noir is straightforward: a Brut Nature, meaning no additional sugar (dosage) is added during vinification. Crafted from grapes grown in the Maison’s Grand Cru ‘Les Corettes’ vineyard, which benefits from a west-facing orientation and excellent sun exposure, this cuvée boasts a harmonious blend of structure and fruity intensity. Priced at S$118 (UP S$156) at Bottles and Bottles.
South Australia’s Wynns Coonawarra Estate
Hailing from the heart of Coonawarra in South Australia, Wynns Coonawarra Estate has built a reputation for more than 125 years, emphasizing its dedication to producing consistently exceptional red wines. It is the largest single vineyard holder in the Coonawarra region with some of Australia’s largest single plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon as well as some of the oldest own-rooted Cabernet and Shiraz vines in the world.
The Wynns Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 (S$46.40 UP S$58 from Bottles and Bottles) and Black Label Shiraz 2019 (S$46.40 UP S$58 from Bottles and Bottles) are versatile for gatherings. Smooth, medium-bodied red wines feature enchanting aromas, lively flavour profiles, and a succulent texture, making them an ideal match for classic holiday fare like roast turkey, prime rib, and robust stews. Additionally, they complement appetizers like charcuterie and cheese platters, provided the wines are chilled to 15°C to 18°C before being served in appropriate red wine glasses.
Also available at Amazon Fresh, Cold Storage, FairPrice Finest, Redmart and The Cellar (online).
The Macallan Colour Collection
The Macallan Colour Collection celebrates the brand’s dedication to natural hues, showcasing the impact of sherry seasoning. This collection includes five single malt Scotch whiskies with age statements of 12 (S$109), 15 (S$224), 18 (S$475), 21 (S$1,485), and 30 (S$6,000) years, marking the reintroduction of age statement whiskies to The Macallan’s global travel retail selection. The collection introduces a fresh visual identity influenced by the brand’s rich heritage and spiritual home. This visual identity was developed in collaboration with the visionary American graphic designer David Carson, drawing inspiration from Jerez, a distinctive region with historic vineyards and exquisite wines, where The Macallan’s sherry-seasoned oak casks are meticulously crafted.
The Macallan Colour Collection is now on offer at Lotte Duty Free stores in Singapore Changi Airport, with prices starting from S$109.
Louis Roederer Collection 244 cuvée
The Louis Roederer Collection 244 represents a multi-vintage blend, crafted by the Champagne house in response to the challenges posed by climate change. Stemming from their renowned Brut Premier, this collection stands out for its unexpectedly heightened emphasis on vintage nuances and terroir influences, boldly deviating from the conventional Louis Roederer house style. Serving as a contemporary line of multi-vintage cuvées, the Collection 244 delves into the transformative journey of its wines amid the changing climate. Characterized by a remarkable blend of restrained power and intensity, it presents itself as a bold amalgamation of acidity and minerality, all enveloped in a soft, velvety embrace of freshness and liveliness.
