Highland, Speyside, Islay, Lowland, and Cambelltown...Scottish, Irish, Japanese and Taiwanese. With its extensive selection of premium spirits, Discovery Primea's 1824 Cigar and Whisky Bar offers single malt connoisseurs and cigar aficionados a cool spot to unwind and indulge in comfort. Start your flight by simply heading up the second floor at Discovery Primea...
The elegant interiors of 1824, with predominantly wood and muted grey tones, exude an old-world and classy vibe, the perfect place for a fine single malt. Named after the year when the very first license for single malt distilleries was granted, 1824 is the metro's newest spot to indulge in a good single malt. And a cigar.
And there's nothing like a whiskey tasting flight to appreciate the subtle nuances of each single malt, enjoy old favorites and discover new ones. The Bruichladdich Flight (P 1,400), with the Bruichladdich Classic Laddie, Port Charlotte, and Octomore from the famed Isle of Islay, gets you started with its heavily peated notes (more on Bruichladdich on my previous post Bruichladdich and Morning Glory).
You can also go on a tasting journey of Scotland with The Whisky by Region Set 1 Flight (P 550), with Cardhu 12 Years, Glenmorangie 10 Years, and Caol Ila 12 Years, (more on the classic Caol Ila and other fine single malts on my earlier post After Six at The Malt Room). The Speyside classic, Cardhu 12 Years is well-balanced and gentle, the Glenmorangie 10 Years from the Highlands offer creamy and subtle fruity notes, while the Caol Ila 12 Years delivers smooth and smoky hints with an elegant hickory finish. Or venture far out to the other side of the world with the Asian Inspired Flight (P 1,200) with Kavalan Concert Master, Nikka Yoichi Nas, and Hibiki 12 Years for a completely new and different single malt experience.
After various flights, settle down for a shot of your favorite, and you just know the day's end will be right...at 1824 Cigar and Whisky Bar.
