A Res­i­dence Per­mit in Aus­tria

The land syn­ony­mous with

The Sound of Mu­sic is also the world’s top res­i­dence des­ti­na­tion, ac­cord­ing to the Global Res­i­dence Pro­gram In­dex 2018-2019. A wealthy, cul­tur­ally rich coun­try, it’s also clean, safe and just a res­i­dence per­mit away from be­ing called home if you show proof of liq­uid as­sets of €40,000 (and other as­sets such as a univer­sity ed­u­ca­tion or own­er­ship of a home there). An Aus­trian res­i­dence per­mit al­lows you to travel visa-free through the Schen­gen states. Thai­land came in fourth, and Sin­ga­pore, 17th, in this year’s re­port.

Ard­beg Twenty Some­thing

The third bot­tling of Ard­beg Twenty Some­thing has been re­leased – a 22 Year Old sin­gle malt dis­tilled in 1996 and ma­tured in ex-bour­bon casks till re­cently. We tasted this rare Scotch in Novem­ber: Its trop­i­cal notes set­tled into a mas­cu­line blend of soot and tar, as sweet smoked ap­ple, pep­per­mint tea and vanilla tof­fee gave way to spicy white pep­per, clove, aniseed and eu­ca­lyp­tus oil. Ex­clu­sively avail­able at Ard­beg em­bassy – The Grande Whisky Col­lec­tion.

Walt Kuhn, Girl with­tur­ban (Zuleika), 1938

This oil-on-can­vas mas­ter­piece res­onates with the Amer­i­can pain­ter’s sig­na­ture dark out­lines, brood­ing aes­thetic and pen­chant for por­tray­ing cir­cus per­form­ers. It is es­ti­mated to fetch more than US$300,000 at the Lady Blue Eyes: Prop­erty Of Bar­bara And Frank Si­na­tra auc­tion, held on De­cem­ber 6 at Sotheby’s. Other good­ies in the line-up in­clude the cou­ple’s prop­er­ties and Bar­bara’s beloved jew­ellery col­lec­tion.
