Driving into S'pore

Hi all, will be driving from Malaysia to S'pore next week. Just want to know if i can bring in a botol of wisky for personal consumption or not. We would be travelling in 3 car and there would be about 10 of us.

Will be coming from the Second Link.

Thank you.

Should not be a problem as you said it is 1 bottle.... which I believe it is a 1L bottle?

Singapore Customs Duty Free listing here

http://www.customs.gov.sg/leftNav/trav/Duty-free+Concession+and+GST+Relief.htm

You will notice that Malaysia arrivals do not get the alcohol allowance, in fact under the table it states this :

'There is no duty-free concession on liquor products if you are arriving from Malaysia, whether by air, sea, road or rail.'

So no, that bottle of whisky would have to be declared, and from this page on the Customs website

http://www.customs.gov.sg/leftNav/trad/val/List+of+Dutiable+Goods.htm

The duty would be 70SGD per litre imported (you want code 22083010 or 22083020).

You can bring it in but you will have to declare it and play tax. Works out around the same price as buying in Singapore. So unless its a special bottle, not worth the trouble.
