In terms of whisky, the absolute highlight of all Singapore “watering holes” was an evening spent at The Auld Alliance a few years ago.
I was joined by one of the original member of our Mumbai based whisky tasting club. Since his move to Singapore a few years ago, he’s been much missed.
We were taken on a tour of the remarkable collection by Arun who shared insights and tales about the remarkable collection – from ship wreck rescues to historically unique bottles – traversing the world of whiskies.
We returned post a delightful dinner to sit down and enjoy two custom created sample sets featuring four whiskies each:
- Singapore Scottish suite: Little Mill, BenRiach, Lochside, Laphroaig
- Round the world tour: Bushmills, Beam’s Choice, Kornog, Yamazaki Sherry
Arun challenged us to go ‘hard core’ blind where we sipped from black glasses so could not even be influenced by the whisky colour.
It was a perfect evening and a complete treat!
Since then my whisky sampling companion and I have tried other places yet tip date, nothing tops that particular evening in June 2015.
