8 Talking Points for March: Yamazaki’s 2016 Sherry Cask, Loewe has a Smart TV, and Leica’s X-U Camera

#1: SPIRITED AWAY If you missed your chance at acquiring a bottle of The Yamazaki Single Malt Sherry Cask 2013, famous for being crowned world’s best whisky in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible, look out for its spicy and less fruity 2016 successor. Only 5,000 bottles have been made.

#2: SCREEN PLAY Every living room or den needs a focal point, and it should be Loewe’s latest smart TV. The Loewe Reference, available in 55, 75 and 85 inches, boasts Ultra HD, cinemaquality sound and a Bluetooth music player.

#3: AIR TIME If it’s time to refresh the inside of your private jet, head down to Seletar Aerospace Park, where leading aircraft maintenance company ST Aerospace has expanded its service offerings with a new VIP interiors completion centre.

#4: PICTURE PERFECT When food shots and selfies don’t cut it anymore, grab an adventure camera and seek out some extreme photography. The newly released Leica X-U, with its waterproof, dustsealed, shock- and freeze-resistant build, will be sure to survive whatever you can.

#5: WINTER WONDERLANDS When you need to beat the heat (which is always), join Private Jet Tours’ “Tip to Toe Expedition”, the world’s first Arctic to Antarctic private jet trip. The 11-day tour includes activities like kite skiing, zip lining over a frozen lake and visiting emperor penguins.

#6: A CASE OF CONFIDENCE Despite weakening economies in South-east Asia, the YPO (Young Presidents’ Organization) Global Pulse surveys report that Asean CEOs are actually increasingly optimistic regarding sales, hiring and fixed investments for this quarter.

#7: RETRO REVIVAL A 1957 Ferrari 335S Spider Scaglietti sold for £24.7 million (S$50 million) last month, breaking the record for the most expensive classic car to be sold at an auction. This car, which is one of just four ever built, was driven by racing legends like Mike Hawthorn and Stirling Moss.

#8: FINE PRINT Relive your army heyday in style with Moncler Gamme Bleu’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection. Designer Thom Browne uses striking camouflage on everything from cardigans to capes for his theme of obscurity.
