Johnnie Walker whisky sells for $198,500 in Singapore

There’s Black Label, Blue Label…and then there’s Diamond Jubilee.  In Singapore, a limited edition whisky made by Johnnie Walker has hit the shelves to commemorate Queen Elizabeth’s 60th year on the throne in England. Only 60 bottles were made, and something tells me that although each bottle costs $198,500, these bottles will get snapped up.

Singapore is the ninth most expensive city in the world, and has the world’s highest concentration of millionaires.  Last year, a Chinese businessman dished out $198,500 for a bottle of rare 62-year-old Dalmore single malt at  Singapore’s Changi Airport Duty Free store.

Apparently, the special blend of whisky has a “velvet texture, the refreshing bitter perfume of spices, pools of soft fruits as it flows down the throat,” according to the Whisky Advocate blog.
