The Whisky Bar: Limited Edition Chinese New Year Gift Box reviewSean Yoong
January 10, 2017
This review is brought to you in part by The Whisky Bar.
Here’s an impressive gift idea for Chinese New Year: Exquisite boxes stuffed with 12 shots of premium labels that promise a tasteful voyage through the world of whiskies – the sturdily crafted case by The Whisky Bar is a beauty on the outside, but what’s within illustrates the formidable thought and effort poured into this offering, with the top lids of each shot spelling out ‘GONG XI FA CHAI,’ reflecting the careful collection of whiskies to supercharge the Year Of the Rooster’s celebratory cheer.
GONG XI: ‘G’ is for Glen Grant 12YO, ‘O’ is for Old Ballantruan 10YO, ‘N’ is for Nikka All Malt, ‘G’ is for Grant’s Family Reserve, ‘X’ is for XR 21 Johnnie Walker and ‘I is for Islay Mist 12YO – the sampling takes us through the smooth, rich nuances of whiskies, with a much-appreciated booklet of tasting notes for nose, palate and finish to help guide the experience.
FA CHAI: ‘F’ is for Famous Grouse The Naked Grouse, ‘A’ is for Arran Lochranza Reserve, ‘C’ is for Chivas Regal Extra, ‘H’ is for Highland Park 12YO, ‘A’ is for Auchentoshan 12YO, and the final ‘I’ is for Irishman Single Malt Small Batch – there’s something for every whisky/whiskey preference contained here, with the potential to entice both malt aficionados and novices.
These CNY boxes are available for RM388+ while stocks last, by advance order of two working days. Collection is at The Whisky Bar but delivery can be arranged for orders of 10 boxes and above; labels may differ based on availability, and customisation can be offered by request. Email [email protected] or call 03-2143-2268 to place an order; thanks to The Whisky Bar for this sampling.
