WhiskyPLUS Kuala Lumpur to Feature Cigar Terrace and Masterclasses

Set to be Kuala Lumpur’s biggest whisky and spirits tasting event, WhiskyPLUS 2018 at the Hilton Kuala Lumpur on Saturday 28 July will be offering a range of whiskies and other spirits from Malaysia’s top spirits importers, distributors, and wholesalers.

Guests at WhiskyPLUS will enjoy unlimited tasting and a selection of chef-curated light bites to complement the session, as well as opportunities for indulging in masterclasses, pop-up bars, a VIP Premier Tasting Room, and an exclusive special selection of purchase-by-the dram rare whiskies, some of which are truly one-of-a-kind offerings.

“Whether you’re a serious whisky connoisseur, a casual aficionado, or a total newbie looking to expand your whisky horizons, WhiskyPLUS will take your enjoyment and appreciation for the whiskies of the world to the next level,” said event organiser Chad Merchant of TEGMedia.

WhiskyPLUS will also feature an indulgent cigar room, with a great selection of Cuban and non-Cuban cigars. Cigar Journal’s Asia-Pacific Editor Samuel Spurr will be present to guide enthusiasts through the intriguing world of premium cigars through a series of introductory cigar masterclasses.

“Cigar Journal is excited to be a WhiskyPLUS exhibitor. The whisky and cigar worlds frequently over lap and this premier event will be the perfect opportunity to explore both,” said Cigar Journal’s Samuel Spurr. “Short masterclasses will give guests an insight into the world of premium cigars, while allowing plenty of time for whisky sampling. I’m looking forward to introducing Cigar Journal to guests – as a global magazine, Cigar Journal’s content appeals to connoisseurs and newcomers alike.”

Tickets are available for either Standard or VIP entry for each of the two sessions. All attendees will receive entry to the main tasting floor, with unlimited sampling of a range of blended and single malt whiskies from around the world, complemented by a few other premium spirits, as well. Attendees will also receive a commemorative Glencairn-style whisky tasting glass with the WhiskyPLUS logo that is theirs to keep, along with complimentary F&B vouchers for Hilton KL restaurants, a selection of chef-curated light bites to enjoy with the whisky tasting, and more. Attendees selecting the VIP entry pass will receive additional privileges and goodies.
