Glenfarclas 18 year old

Legacy is what defines this 175-year-old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky brand. Glenfarclas is one of the rarest Scotch Whisky brands in the world that have been unitedly produced by an independent family firm. The spirit of independence signifies Glenfarclas’ commitment to produce the finest Highland Malt. Famous for its traditional full bodied and well-cherished style, this Whisky is perfect as a coveted gift or for a special occasion.

The secret of the unique character of Glenfarclas is its traditional distillation method, combined with the unique size and shape of the copper pot stills in which the spirit is fermented, the selected oak casks in which it is stored and the style and location of the distillery’s warehouse. Glenfarclas produces fine Whiskies with different flavors, notes and levels of maturity. From a fresh and mouthwatering 10-year-old to the indulgent 40-year-old Whisky and the class apart limited edition 105 Cask Strength, all are part of Glenfarclas’ portfolio. This veteran Whisky brand recently launched its 18-year-old Whisky for travel retail. As per our commitment to stock the most renowned brands in the world, we will soon have Glenfarclas 18 Year Old Whisky in our store. Here is a short introduction to this popular Whisky.

Glanfarclas 18 Year Old

As is the traditional distillery style of Glenfarclas, this Whisky is heavily sherried and bottled at its natural colour.

The nose presents a lovely freshness, revealing a slightly fermented soft fruit, honey, white pepper, lemon and a hint of vanilla. A little underlying maltiness releases with a touch of water.

The flavour is fuller and more powerful than hinted at by the colour and aroma. The drinker experiences a lovely mixture of creamy fudge, dried fruits, almonds and apples on the palate. The ending is a little bitter, though long lasting, smooth and satisfying as it slips down the throat.

The next time you pass through the Kempegowda International Airport, be sure to visit Bengaluru Duty Free and bring home this spirited Highland Malt from Scotland.

Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs 1998

Taittinger brings to you its exquisite Champagne, produced in the cellars of the former Saint-Nicaise Abbey in Reims, France. Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs is made only from the best vines in the Côte des Blancs and is only produced when the harvest is of exceptional quality, worthy of a vintage year.

Only the Wwine from the first press, the cuvee, is extracted and used in creating this exceptional spirit, which is a sure guarantee of finesse. Only 5% of the Wine is used and aged for four months in new oak barrels, which enhances the intense qualities and complexities of the final blend of Champagne. Only after patient slow ageing for a period of ten years in the Saint-Nicaise chalk pits, the cuvee of exceptional quality comes out into the light.

Taittinger Comtes Blanc de Blancs

This pale yellow Champagne with light abundant bubbles rises steadily to the top for the mousse. The pure bouquet opens with a contrast between a well developed intensity and finesse that reveals aromas of pears, greengages and white flowers. After a short period of time, the intensity presents the aromatic richness and maturity of a wine that is already expressing massive potential.

On the palate this bubbly Champagne gives a lively, direct, precise attack and is dominated by flavours of candied lemon, zest and fresh pineapple. The mid palate is fresh and balanced. The overall impression is of generosity, voluptuousness and volume, highlighted by characteristics of grapefruit and citrus notes. The finish of this marvellous Champagne is long, lingering and complex.

The Champagne’s marriage of finesse and aromatic intensity is a promise of future potential, but already makes for very exciting and pleasurable drinking. It is perfect for a truly special celebration and goes very well with seafood, including shellfish and regular fish.

Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs is now available at Bangalore’s favourite duty free destination, Bengaluru Duty Free, operated by Nuance at the Kempegowda International Airport for $250.
Grab your bottle of this fine Champagne and celebrate a special occasion in the finest way possible.

A World without Duty Free


Image source: http://bit.ly/1l2seST

International brands, luxury products, 24 hour shopping and buying gifts are the things which come to everybody’s mind when planning an international trip. As a frequent traveller, you get to experience the joy of shopping for international luxury brands at duty free stores at international airports.

A duty free store is a destination to get top international brands from all corners of the world. Various product categories at considerably lesser prices than downtown stores attract travellers. But have you ever wondered what travelling would be like if there were no duty free stores? What would the World be like without duty free shopping?

Limited access to international brands

One major fantasy of modern travellers is to acquire renowned international brands that they read about only in glossy fashion magazines or browse on fashion websites. If you are a brand loyalist for a high-end brand that is not easy to get at your local lifestyle store and you’d love an opportunity to shop when travelling abroad, you’d find it really hard without a duty free store that allows you a range of products under one roof, to choose from.

Heavy taxes on branded products

Even if you find your favourite brands in city retail stores, you will shop sparingly, because your favourite international brands will burn a hole in your pocket, as the prices for such products are sky high. VAT, import tax, and other taxes add to make up the incredibly high prices of these brands at local retail outlets.

Travelling won’t be as much fun

Travelling is always fun when shopping is a part of your itinerary. For some, travelling without shopping is quite a boring affair. Duty free stores at the airport are the best places to kill time before your flight or to pick up gifts. Would waiting in transit be as much fun if you didn’t have anything to do?

Gifts will be expensive

Everyone likes to meet their colleagues or loved ones after a trip with a surprise gift. At duty free stores, you have the freedom to pick up gifts for those waiting for you back home, without any hassle. In addition, these stores have great discounts and offers on wide categories, so you can conveniently buy gifts for kids, your better half, a business associate, your boss, friends, etc. Without duty free stores, you will allot time on your precious travel itinerary to make time for shopping and not to mention, also pay a fortune for the same.

Not much variety

Duty free stores give you the joy and pleasure of shopping for a wide range of products from a number of global brands. You can pick up products like gadgets, liquors, perfumes, chocolates, fashion accessories and much more from famous international luxury brands. Now imagine shopping from different shops, at different places, spending time on comparisons and maybe even spending more than you want. Would you want to go through all that trouble?

So yes, international travel would not the same without duty free shops.
