All About Whisky, but not Just Whisky Either: Maison du Whisky
Maison du Whisky is a specialty store that doubles as a bar after 6 PM. They have a range of over 700 whiskies from which one could buy by bottle or savor by the glass. The staff is knowledgeable and is ready with help. I wanted a very peaty whiskey. And they produced an 18 year-old Laphroaig. Anyone interested in whisky knows Islay single malts such as Laphroaig is peaty. But this 18 year-old was something out of this world. It was pricey, but worth every S$ paid. The whisky came with water from Scotland in a tiny bottle complete with a small rubber-and-glass pipette! The original whisky bottle was kept in front of us in display. Against the shelf with rows upon rows of bottles, this one looked majestic.
Maison du is concentrating on whisky, all varieties, from many lands. They also offer other liquors: gin, rum, vodka, cognac, armagnac, tequila. They do not serve food. But this is Robertson Quay, Singapore, dotted with any number of eateries. We had dinner at one restaurant and strolled down for an after-dinner whisky experience. It proved to be a fulfilling, exquisite encounter. I recommend it to anyone having a little more than passing interest in whisky.
A bit pricey - but worth it if you are into your whisky
Service so bad I won’t go back
That is where anything resembling service ended. After completing the sale, the staff member continued to entertain every nonsensical question tossed at him and never got around to serving us. Eventually we were asked to sit outside where he promised he would bring water and take our order. It never happened.
We walked away and I will certainly never go back. Clearly the staff have no concept of service or how to manage more than one transaction at a time.
Terrible. And frankly, the selection was surprisingly small compared to the better malt bars in Asia.
