Updates will be sporadic in the next 2 months until April. Not only will I be too caught up with my offline commitments, but I will also have to majorly cut down on leisurely drinking.... unless it's in an event, which I won't say not to, hehe. Meanwhile, feel free to get quite frequent updates from my Instagram (lots of of silly daily shenanigans) and Facebook page. Happy chinese new year, happy chah goh mei and happy valentines in advance!
Old Parr is all the rage.
Evidently an underground popular whisky, my uncle introduced it to me 2 years ago... and then I hear it get mentioned more and more. It's a legit scotch, no doubt - 1 of Diageo's many, many brands. If you can get your hands on it for a good price, it's a very decent house pour.
This Old Parr seems to be the in thing among local businessmen lately. The label is over 100 years old but this expression is just over 25 years old, which is now only gaining popularity in Malaysia. I wonder why so low key. It's an easy-to-drink everyday scotch. I suppose it's perfect for business entertainment and doesn't quite hurt the bank account. What do you make of it? Edit: evidently always been quietly popular. I just didn't know about it #drink #booze #alcohol #whisky #blendedwhisky #scotch #whiskey #oldparr #angeltini
Ril's Bar, Bangsar
One of the earliest cocktail joints in Bangsar, it's currently helmed by 2 new imported bartenders, Zach & Mat, who are quite cocktail geeks. I haven't been back for over a year but with these new guys around, am looking forward to trying more of their signatures and interpretation of the classics. Prices start from RM42 and up. I've been planning to do up a list for cocktail bars I've visited - it will happen in 2016!
Hanky Panky happened tonight at Rils. New menu, new bartenders - hi Matt hi Zach! I like it but gonna have to come back again soon. You know, just to make sure it's legit and shit. It's tough man. But someone's gotta do it. #drink #alcohol #booze #cocktail #bar #cocktailbar #rils #bangsar #jalantelawi #klbar #kualalumpur #Malaysia #angeltini
Martini Pinoy - just in! 1 of 2 of their limited-time-only specials, with @no3gin, Martini Bianco Vinegar, rosemary, orange. It's like a martini but with a nice twang of acid to make it so easy to drink. A good one to introduce to a virgin martini drinker. RM50. The other one's called a Rachel's Sour. Nikka black, lemon, coconut, cinnamon. Rm48. Yes I'm back at @rilsbangsar :p #drink #alcohol #booze #cocktail #cocktailhour #bar #cocktailbar #rils #bangsar #jalantelawi #klbar #kualalumpur #Malaysia #angeltini
Omakase + Appreciate
Giving a little shout out to their snack menu. Not a wide range (just 3 options) but tasty enough to satisfy your alcohol-induced munchies.
Hunky Dory. A sour vodka cocktail with a surprising nutty twist from Yinying's new monthly menu. Yum. Rm40. Haven't been here in a while. And after going to so many in Klang Valley this is still one of my favourites. The bar is made of a large block of cement. So super no frills, I bet they wouldn't even bat an eyelid if you showed up without shoes and in your jammies. My favourite part is when it's nice and quiet during off peak hours. Coz this old girl doesn't like crowds and noise anymore. #drink #booze #alcohol #cocktail #cocktailbar #klbar #omakaseappreciate #kualalumpur #bar #Malaysia #angeltini
Kyuri noodles. Japanese cucumber. Sesame dressing. Chicken floss. RM8. How does something so simple tastes so freaking awesome? How? I cannot brain this. There are no words. It's ridiculous. Just... Just order it with your cocktail next time when you're at Omakase. #drink #booze #alcohol #cocktail #cocktailbar #klbar #omakaseappreciate #kualalumpur #bar #Malaysia #angeltini #eat #food #snack #barfood #barsnack #fanomz
Hello Wholly Spirits!
There's a new distributor in town which focuses on fairly uncommon stuff which are quite sought after by bartenders and spirits aficionados alike. Check them out at whollyspiritsasia.com
Welcome to Malaysia, boys! Spirits made by bartenders for bartenders. Generally lovely in cocktails and neat. I'm infatuated with that vodka. It's like freaking cotton candy. Can't wait to see them appearing in cocktail bars worth its salt. #drink #booze #alcohol #Vodka #tequila #gin #rum #cocktail #liqour #angeltini
