Four Single Malts from Scotland

Whiskey experts have always wanted to bottle the essence of Scotland – the inspiration behind the launch from Golden Decanters. The new collection consists of cask-strength whiskies that epitomize the sublime combination of age and beauty. Each of the four major distilling regions of Scotland is represented in one of the single malt whiskeys. The Highlands – with a 19-year-old Ben Nevis, which is a vibrant blend of wood, spice, and fruit. The Lowlands – with a 22-year-old Auchentoshan, which is deep, rich, and surprisingly full-bodied. Islay is represented by a 26-year-old Bowmore, which is a deceptively sweet single malt with a dry, elegant smokiness midpalate. And Speyside’s offers a 34-year-old Glenlivet that highlights the brand’s delicate sweetness without any overly woody notes—a surprise considering its age.

Each of the four bottles is delicately etched by Glencairn Crystal with a scene of Scotland’s finest pursuits —golf, hunting, fishing, and Highland cattle. The design itself is replicated on the handcrafted American oak boxes in which the bottles are housed. 180 numbered sets were created, of which more than 40 have already been sold since the launch in October. The four whiskies are sold as a set, for about $9,161. Golden Decanters has already announced a second release, with more to come, including a possible U.S. exclusive.

A pleasant pastime for wealthy buyers would be the guided distillery tours that the company offers to its customers who make their way to Scotland. An even more immersive experience is available over the course of two weeks to take in all of Scotland’s castles, fine restaurants, and distilleries. The Golden Decanters whiskies are included in the excursion package, the price of which is available on request.

Ronin Motor Works Releases the Last of Its “Art Bike” Motorcycles

When a firearms-accessories company ventured into the world of limited-release motorcycles nearly 8 years ago, no one could have foreseen that Denver-based Ronin Motor Works would produce one of the most extreme emblems of open road travel. In 2010, Magpul Industries debuted the Ronin concept – their one-off bike that began life as a Buell 1125R. The name is inspired from the Japanese word for a samurai who has lost his master, and alludes to Harley-Davidson’s emblematic discontinuation of the Buell brand in 2009.

The concept generated enough interest in the luxury world of high-end motor toys to begin production. The initial set of 47 bikes came in seven sets – each with a different colour or design scheme, and released over the past 3 years. The final set, dubbed the “art bikes,” boasts one-of-a-kind designs from Denver-based artists. Surprisingly, the acid-etching patterns of Jason Thielke work well with the industrial design of the powerful bike and would certainly appeal to wealthy buyers with a penchant for renegade adventure. Price for the Ronin #5 is available on request but its predecessor retailed for $38,000.

Apart from the unique designs, the bike sports the same custom monoshock linkage suspension system and front-mounted radiator to help cool down the Rotax-designed motor. Stacked low and high beam headlights complete the sleek frame of the body with: system controls, gauges, seating, LED taillight, and even a radio-frequency identification (RFID) enabled key for push-button starting.

Rolls-Royce introduces the Black Badge series02

Rolls-Royce introduces the Black Badge series

Rolls-Roys has taken the automotive world by storm with not one, but two new additions to the Black Badge series and they’re beyond classy. Ghost and Wrath are designed for “people who are elusive and defiant, the risk takers and disrupters, who break the rules and laugh in the face of convention.” Basically, the company is courting rich renegades with a grittier, more brooding take on its recognizable style.

Rolls-Royce introduces the Black Badge series01

The new models will undoubtedly appeal to young, wealthy business moguls, who go by their own rules with cars that are “just as uncompromising and unapologetic in their choice of living and lifestyle as their predecessors.”

Technically and aesthetically, the ‘Black Badge’ is darker, more assertive, more confident and powerful, and more demanding than the standard Rolls-Royce silhouette. Black Badge leaves a powerful presence on the luxury landscape, marking a transformative moment for the great brand.

Rolls-Royce introduces the Black Badge series03

The unique appeal of the Black Badge series come, in part, from the black hood ornament along with lightweight, carbon fiber wheels and “the deepest, darkest and most intense black ever seen on a production car surface.

The Ghost Black Badge is powered by a 6.6-liter V12, now making 603 hp and 620 lb-ft of torque. The eight-speed automatic adds a sense of urgency and delivers a soft ride. The Wraith benefits from 51 extra pound-feet of twist and a total of 623 hp. It gets changed transmission programming to offer a quicker feel.

Both models are priced in the $300,000+ range, which means darkness sure doesn’t come cheap, but that’s fine.

Lexus Debuts a Stunning and Speedy 42-Foot Sport Yacht

The designers behind the Lexus brand debuted the new Lexus Sport Yacht, a 42-foot one-off concept, engineered by the Toyota Marine Department, and built by Marquis Yachts of Pulaski. Promoting the ‘Lexus lifestyle’, the new boat is in a class of its own when it comes to performance capabilities, dimensions and design.

With a twin V-8 gasoline engines capable of producing a total of 950 hp and for a top speed of 49 mp, the complexity of the yacht is truly staggering. A “turbo-boost” option is available at the helm and can add 1,000 rpm over the rev limiter for a boost of speed. The hull is made entirely of carbon-fiber reinforced plastic, which has managed to decrease its weight by about 2,200 pounds. A 7-inch-diagonal touchscreen in the center of the steering wheel gives the captain complete control of all navigation and entertainment systems.

Inspired by the LFA supercar, the concept yacht boasts a similar aggressive forefoot and a sleek exterior. With no walkways from the stern to the bow, to keep the flowing profile –designers have opted instead for a panel at the forward end of the saloon and a set of steps that lead to a hatch on the foredeck. The hatch has sufficient space for a deckhand to aid in anchoring and mooring the yacht. The seats lining the sides of the cockpit can comfortably fit up to eight passengers. Their form is functional and shaped like waves, allowing guests to face each other or turn and face forward.

The cabinetry, panelling, and upholstery were manufactured in Italy and shipped to Wisconsin, where the interior was assembled. The interior exhibits a strong lounge-feeling with hand-painted glass panels on the walls, a curvy-striped etched-glass floor, and a long, off-white-leather couch that can seat eight.

The Most Expensive American Whiskey01

The Most Expensive American Whiskey

In 2013 when Michter’s released its Celebration Sour Mash whiskey at $4,000 per bottle, it was an exquisite experience to obtain one of the 273 bottles available. Now, there is an even pricier whiskey that spirit connoisseurs can appreciate. The second batch of the palatable liquid is the 2016 Michter’s Celebration Sour Mash. Put together by Willie Pratt before he retired, the new blend retails at $5,000 for a bottle—a bit pricier than its predecessor. There are only 256 bottles released worldwide, making it a rare treat.

As Joseph Magliocco, Michter’s president, puts it – this is far more than another whiskey for the luxury market. “With Celebration,” he says, “we wanted to make an American whiskey that’s as good as anything being made anywhere else in the world. And I think we’ve succeeded.” For this reason an entirely new blend of six different Kentucky straight bourbons and ryes, aged from 10 to almost 33 years, was created. It was then bottled at cask strength, 58.4 percent alcohol by volume. The result has the texture of bourbon, with rich caramel, vanilla, and honey notes, but evolves like a rye, dry and spicy, with lots of oak on the long, dry finish. Michter’s trademark big, powerful flavor profile is also there, but the combination of the whiskeys in the blend make it resonate even deeper on the palate, with greater complexity.

The packaging of the new blend is similar to the 2013 Celebration. An elegant red wood-and-leather box contains the bottle; the 18-karat gold on both the stopper and the label was applied in France. There is a drawer beneath the bottle with a wax-sealed envelope with a letter signed by Willie Pratt for a personal touch.
