Ever since I attended the launch of 56 Degrees , I've been wondering how they were doing, so when Eddy of Tai Thong group told me he was organising a whisky pairing dinner with the aforementioned tipple, I was rather intrigued.
The diners were in a small ball room, all decked up, very boudoir like, with dim lighting, to set the mood. At RM1,888 nett per table, you get a chinese banquet and TWO bottle of 56 Degrees. Our table managed to finish one bottle, which makes me wonder what happened the second bottle which disappeared mysteriously, so much so the handful of us who wanted the "one for the road" didn't manage to get it.
Paired with a whiskey cocktail, either the 56 Escape or the Scottish Lass, (both of which I found too sweet, and therefore just stuck to the old man style of whisky on the rocks), crispy crab dumpling with Wasabi Dressing, with deep fried pumpkin and lotus root with salted egg.
Lobster with fresh fruit salad with Italian Vanilla dressing,...an impressive platter by any standard, and the lobster meat was firm and fresh, although a bit drowned in the fruit salad. ..
For the grand finale, Braised Abalone (14 head), Sea Cucumber Stuffed with Tuna and Wanton.
The promotion is on going, and is pretty good value considering you get two bottles of whisky.
