“Incredible whisky collection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

A very large collection and it was typically rare of rarest kind of whiskeys I did never know about them. It was very enticing from the way they would decorate the outside tables with a candle. The umbrella seating arrangement was the best. Reading the drinks menu card is a pleasure.

“Great selection of whiskys in a comfortable setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Each time I travel to KL, I always make a pit stop at The Whisky Bar. It is unpretentious, stocks a wide selection of single and blended whisky from Scotland and Japan, and offers a conducive environment for one to savour the 'water of life'.

They now also offer samplers where you can taste different whiskeys from either a particular distillery or country of origin; great for anyone looking to explore before deciding on a personal favourite.

The cigar collection isn't too bad either, though it could be more comprehensive.

But all in all, The Whisky Bar is a lovely place to unwind after a long day at the office, or shopping mall.

“Asia means Scotland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

One would not expect it in Malaysia but a bar catered to scotch and whisky lovers...dare I say where Asia meets Scotland. With close to 300 whisky and scotch selections it is quite a treat.
Solid selection of Steak to match it is nothing if not different. Staff are very helpful and are there willing and able with advise. Point of differentiation is the ice cube/balls shaved by hand.
Certainly worth trying.

Dear Jane A,

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review.

You have put it so aptly - Asia meets Scotland! In the heart of Changkat Bukit Bintang, the street packed with pubs, bars and restaurants, we want to bring to our patrons a "whisky haven". Hence, the Scottish theme, the custom-designed bar and stools, as well s the 350 types of whisky.

It is dedicated to whisky, and we hope both the whisky connoisseurs and those who are beginning to explore the mystery of whisky would feel equally at home.

Once again, thank you!

“Great whisky selection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Everything is there, the hush and retro atmosphery that make you want to light a cigar while sipping your whisky in the big leather seat. Not cheap but really good selection of Whisky, waiters that can explain the difference and advise you. Whisky served very profesionnally, An experience!
