According to a story on CNN.com, a Chinese businessman has put down a deposit to buy a $200,000 bottle of Scotch whiskey at an airport in Singapore earlier this month.

The man put down a deposit on the bottle of 62-year-old Dalmore single malt. Only 12 bottles were produced, the story says. The sale price breaks the retail record set by a bottle of Dalmore 64 sold in London for $188,000 earlier this year, according to the report.
