Oyuwari Whisky. 

oyuwari whisky @ Twenty One Bar

Just whisky with hot water, it's a popular winter drink in Japan. Once the hot water hits the whisky, the lovely whisky fragrance hits you in all the right places. And of course, the hot water burns off some of the alcohol, making the whisky smoother to consume. Sure we don't get winter. But this is great for the crazy cold rainy season we've been having.

White Oak Akashi Blended Japanese Whisky.

This lesser known Japanese label is now available in Malaysia, distributed by Fortier Wines & Spirits. Evidently the stills are only in operation for 1 month each year, which means that they have super limited quantities to sell.

Seems like there are 2 versions of this 1) A domestic Japanese one where the malt whisky is mixed with molasses spirit and 2) An export version where its a mix of malt and grain whiskies (source). We get version 2.

61 Monarchy is Opened for Business. 

61 Monarchy bar / lounge opens

PJ-lites can rejoice as we can look forward to yet another new boozy hang out joint in PJ, Damansara Uptown.

It's setting itself up to be a snug, intimate, upscale whisky/cocktail lounge for the affluent with a strict dress code applied (no slippers, no shorts etc..). 61 Monarchy is part the Hyde, Good Batch and Nara Kitchen group, by the way, and are all located practically next to each other.

Inside Scoop Boozy Ice Creams.

Inside Scoop Cognac Cranberry

Crowned Best Place for Dessert by popular vote in Time Out KL's Food Awards 2015, we popped by last week to check it out.

2 flavours stood out for us for obvious reasons - Smoked Cognac & Cognac Cranberry (pictured above, 1 scoop = RM9.50). We tried them both and man, it really does have quite a bit of alcohol - you can smell and taste it! Smoked Cognac is exactly what the name says it is - smoked cognac. Both are delicious novelties to enjoy on a hot weekend.

Until next week, drink safe!
