Whisky connoisseurs, assemble! The second edition of the annual WhiskyPLUS is coming up fast on 15th June, held at the grand ballroom of the newly opened luxury Pavilion Hotel Kuala Lumpur Managed by Banyan Tree.
This year you can expect over 50 participating whiskies and other selected spirits brands, as well as independent bottlings and some new-to-market expressions. Guests will receive commemorative Glencairn-style whisky tasting glasses, complimentary F&B vouchers for restaurants in Pavilion Hotel and Banyan Tree, as well as a set meal box; while VIP pass holders get access to the VIP lounge, samples of an exclusive selection of premium whiskies, and some additional privileges and goodies.
Read on for a few more tips about what to expect:
Pick your session
With the success of last year’s event, the day will be broken into two sessions – Session 1 from 12pm to 4pm, and Session 2 from 5pm to 10pm, with an additional charge of RM30 – to make sure your experience is enjoyable and not at all harried. These sessions are capacity-controlled, so tickets are limited.
Visit all the corners
Also returning is the Cigar Corner in the main tasting room, with a selection of Cuban and non-Cuban hand-rolled cigars ready for purchase (and also for smoking, you will be ushered to the Whisky Cove for a comfortable, quiet puff). Speaking of corners, tokens can be purchased for the Collector’s Corner for a sampling of rare, old, and collectible whiskies by the dram – definitely not to be missed.
Don’t forget to check the bars
KL’s hottest cocktail bars and most talented bartenders will be in the main room shaking up drinks and putting on a show to keep you entertained and lubricated.
Guardians and Dram Full members get a discount
WhiskyPLUS is collaborating with the Malaysian chapter of Glenlivet Guardians and Dram Full Malaysia, and will be treating members to special discounts on entry passes – available only on the exclusive platform for Guardians, the Dram Full Malaysia Facebook page, as well as the official ticketing site.
