Some wise man once said that the best place to buy the best ‘nectar’ read liquor is at the Airport Duty-free. Indeed, the Airport Duty-free is such a delight to explore, right? But there are so many brands and too many neatly stacked counters and shelves to delve into… and to pick the best and the right alcohol is indeed a herculean feat. So TheGlitz curated an assortment of the best liquor available at Duty-free all across India.

Presenting TheGlitz Curated 6 Best Liquors At Duty-free

Chivas Extra 13

Extra aged, extra cask, extra flavour

Back in the 19th century, John and James Chivas refused to settle, always pushing the boundaries of what was expected. In their Aberdeen Emporium, they imported different spirits and spices from across the globe, fascinated by a world of flavor.

Chivas Extra 13 Rum Cask Selection is an exceptionally sweet whisky that adds a new layer of flavor to the luxurious Chivas house style. If you’re after the sweetest Scotch, look no further, finishing a portion of our blended Scotch whisky in rum casks brings the best of Scotland to sweeter, more tropical shores.

Nose

Taste
Explosion of juicy orange, sweet apricot jam and sticky honey

Finish
A lingering sweetness accompanied by a touch of cinnamon

Jameson Caskmates

Jameson Caskmates was born from the collaboration between Jameson and Cork’s Franciscan Well Brewery. Our Jameson triple-distilled whiskey is aged in craft stout-seasoned oak barrels and while our signature smoothness is very much intact, notes of cocoa, coffee and butterscotch confirm the stout influence. Caskmates is a head-turning, modern Irish whiskey.

Nose
An initial aroma of freshly cut hay is complemented by a crisp orchard fruit character – green apples and pears, with a twist of lime zest. Mild pot still spices appear, deepening from green tea to hazelnut and milk chocolate

Taste
The initial sweet mouth coating typical of the Irish pot still inclusion is quickly complemented by the subtle touch of hops and cocoa beans from the beer cask finish

Finish
Long and sweet with milk chocolate and butterscotch

Price
INR 3790

Location
Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru airports

GLENMORANGIE SIGNET

A velvet explosion, inspired by espresso.

As Dr Bill, the freethinking Director of Whisky Creation, enjoyed a cup of his favourite Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee, the notion of Signet first came to him. At once his mind filled with spiralling mocha flavours that he could not forget. It would take him years to bring our unprecedented whisky to life. But in its tiramisu tones and melting chocolate, you can taste his most delicious imaginings.
Signet begins with our precious chocolate malt spirit, made just once a year in our giraffe-high stills. Its espresso-like intensity fills our Distillery with aromas more familiar in an Italian coffee bar. Over the years, we temper its power with rare and treasured casks. Bourbon for creaminess. Sherry for sweetness. The spice of virgin charred oak. All balanced by some of the oldest whisky we own. The result? A velvet explosion of flavour. Bursts of bitter mocha, sizzling spice and waves of dark chocolate, mellowed by smooth butterscotch. Whisky, as you have never tasted it before.

Taste: A velvet explosion of crackling spices swirls around bitter mocha and dark chocolate, toasted hazelnuts and mellow butterscotch.
Aroma: Coffee, ginger and cinnamon melt into dark chocolate and tiramisu, with dark toffee, crystallized orange peel and rich fruit cake.
Finish: Mocha and spice combine with cappuccino and amaretto, before a finale of chocolate-coated raisins and orange.

Price: INR 50,900


Location: At all airport duty-free
