There aren't many whiskey bars in Asia, and this place has a very extensive and impressive collection.  Interior was furnished very lavishly in rich tones of rich oak and dark mahogany tones, housing buttery soft leather seats that could only be described as luxurious, and rows of Whiskey lined the shelves, forming part of the decor themselves. In fact, it looked like an old English library in a posh home.I decided to go for French series - Absinthe, though the alcoholic content was at 70% high. My drink is named Belle Amie (SGD$24.00) - interestingly, it came in a drip form. I wanted patiently and watched the precious Whiskey falling drop by drop into the glass, till I got a beautiful light-Jade green drink in front of me. A whiff drew out the tangier notes that was like parsley, coriander. It was smooth to the tongue's touch, and tasted like the way it smelt - slightly piercing but sweet, nothing like the usual Whiskey I used to drink. I loved it and my views on Whiskey changed immediately.Friends had other whiskey drinks - Highland Park (SGD$16.00), Bunnahabhain (SGD$18.00) and Glenfiddich (SGD$24.00). Some of the ice cubes are shaped like footballs - adorable, but they melted faster.For full review and more detailed information, please feel free to visit:http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2016/03/drinks-at-auld-alliance-whiskey-bar.html continue reading

After vacating their previous premises at Chijmes, bespoke whisky bar The Auld Alliance has found a new home in Rendezvous Gallery, next to Rendezvous Hotel. Established in 2011 by Mr. Emmanuel Dron, The Auld Alliance is named after a period of truce between Scotland and France, and is widely considered to be Singapore's finest whisky bar.Ambience at The Auld Alliance retains its classical library style, with huge plush leather couches, dim lighting, and rows upon rows of bookshelves, lined with The Auld Alliance extensive range of over 1,400 labels of whisky. The spacious layout can accomodate over 60 people, including a private 14-seater room for those seeking even greater privacy than what The Auld Alliance hidden location currently offers.Service at The Auld Alliance is professional and knowledgable. Besides the owner, staff are trained and well versed in the vast collection of whisky available, from the various labels, to serving, and even curating and storage. Don't let the 70 page book-like menu intimidate you, just ask the staff if you need assistance!The Auld Alliance doesn't offer any food, beyond simple nuts / snacks. Go for the 1,400 labels of whisky, ranging in price from as low as SGD $14 per glass, to as high as hundreds of dollars per glass for the rare labels. The menu helpfully has some descriptions, on taste of each whisky, and their country of origin. Befittingly, the majority of whisky is from Scotland, though they also carry other whisky labels from many other countries, including Australia, France, Taiwan and India.Besides the extensive range of whisky, The Auld Alliance also offers an extensive variety of wines, with over 80 labels available. They also offer a decent selection of cocktails and absinthe.The Absinthe Clandestine Marianne (SGD $23 Per Glass) is a white Swiss absinthe, has a refreshing minty taste with flavours of anise, wild flower, and honey, and a lingering bitterness of wormwood.The Whisky Glendronach 12 Year Old Sherry Cask (SGD $16 Per Glass) is a Scottish whisky, with a medium body, tastes of nuts and fruit, hints of sherry, and a strong alcohol aroma.Full The Auld Alliance review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/06/the-auld-alliance.html continue reading
