    Johnnie Walker XR 21-Year Old at Duty Free

    From Luxist:

    Diageo Global Travel and Middle East has launched a 21-year old
    Johnnie Walker Scotch whisky exclusively, for now, at Indira
    Gandhi International airport's newly opened Terminal 3.

    Johnnie Walker XR 21 YO is an exclusive blend inspired by the handwritten
    notes of Sir Alexander Walker, the grandson of founder Johnnie Walker.
    Sourced from the exclusive reserve of aged casks, including those of the
    now silent Brora distillery, the whisky has been allowed to age for
    twenty-one years, achieving a smooth, deep blend - the depth and
    intensity of aged oak, the subtle notes of vanilla, the sweet hint of golden
    honey and a very smooth finish. Each bottle is uniquely numbered and sells
    for $105.00 U.S.

    Diageo is quiet for now about a broader release.

    That seems cheap.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    You said it! What surprised me most was the (relatively) low price.
    I would have guessed something a bit higher for such an "exclusive"
    item. The bottle sure is a pretty looking thing, though...

    It would probably be closer to 200 if it weren't "duty" free. 105 is really inexpensive.
