Fine spirits by La Maison Du Whisky @ Robertson Walk
upon a time,
they charged a cover to enter and a separate charge for drinks ordered.
Their collection of more than 600 whiskey spans across continents for
both rare and common ones, is indeed every whiskey
lover’s dream come through. Entering this small shop is akin to
stepping into a separate world altogether. As much as Robertson Walk
hustles and bustles on a Friday evening, behind the glass doors
everything comes to a calming standstill. We managed to get
counter seats right in the middle of a whiskey cellar – shelves and
shelves of prized spirits. The menu spans over thirty pages and only for
the whiskey lover, I reiterate.
I am no whiskey fan
but even sitting in the bar and watching the the bartenders concoct
cocktails or fill glasses with whiskey is enthralling enough.
Bottles lining the counter. Make an order, the bartender tipples it and places the bottle you've just ordered infront of you.
The glass to dip the stirrer in.
First up by Chivas Brothers, Strathisla. ($12)
12 years old and I winced at the first sip. Burnt all the way down with an unpleasant aftertaste which the liquor fan who had a face of complete bliss.
Another that I forgot what. Love their huge cubes of ice!
I must have been
such a sorry sight seated in a whiskey bar without a drink in hand that
the bartender very sweetly offered me an apple liquer. Intensely
fragrant – I swear I could smell a green apple orchard
in that one whiff. The sweetness was addictive too, it honestly could
pass off as an alcoholic apple juice. A great pity this is not available
on the menu, if not I’d be heading back many times over just for this!
“Too much of anything is bad, but too much of good whiskey is barely enough.” - Mark Twain. I’m sure the whiskey lover concurs.
