By The Way - Yum Seng Gifts for the Taipan!

So you want to get your top client or Boss, a status gift ... fit for an Emperor ...

Chivas Regal is no longer the "ah pek's" choice. Unveiled this week, the brand has a new design called The Chivas Regal 18 Limited Edition that ropes in iconic French fashion designer Christian Lacroix. The design which features a the whisky packaged in a luxurious gold stamped brocade box mirrors the rich, indulgent taste of the brand's whisky. Available in Hong Kong at Voila and City Super for HK$5,400. Only 30 bottles are reserved for the connoisseurs in Hong Kong, while 3,000 limited quantity offered in worldwide.

If he is a cigar afficianado, then perhaps Martell would do nicely as they have just launched a Cohiba cognac which comes in an elegant bottle with a silk screen print of a typical Cuban tobacco field landscape. The wooden box is open in front, and features a carousel that allows the design and artwork to be viewed in its entirety.  The cognac itself has a distinct character with an opening sensation that is rounded, smooth and almost sweet and a taste that leads into subtlety and finesse of the old Grande Champagne region. A touch of liquorice with a slight nutty note are found in the long and gentle finish. Available at HK$5,000 at Voila and major liquor stores in January, 2011.
