Quaich Bar has opened a second branch at South Beach, which boasts features such as the backlit “whisky light” bar to showcase its bottles.
Its vast collection of boutique, rare and collectible single malt whiskies curated by founder Ng Khoon Hui include rare whiskies from three distilleries – Glen Scotia, Kilkerran and Springban – of the resurgent Campbeltown region, for which they are the exclusive distributor in Singapore. Among the most striking is the Glenglassaugh 40 Years Old 1973 ($156/45ml), a Quaich Bar exclusive that boasts an aromatic nose with tropical fruit sweetness, and a sweet and creamy taste with wood integrated notes of dried berries and hints of cocoa.
Another precious gem is the Tobermory 42 Years ($5,000), the oldest and rarest single malt Scotch produced by the Tobermory Distillery, which has a fruity and lightly spicy nose and is very sweet and easy to drink and leaves a long finish. 30 Beach Road, #01-16 South Beach Ave
