The whisky scene in Singapore has grown rapidly in the last few years. Barely a decade past, there was a bare handful of whisky bars to be found here. Now, it seems like the island is dotted with them.
Riding the wave of whisky’s meteoric rise, many of these new bars come off as empty shells, bereft of substance and passion. Like fast food, they fill the appetite, but not the soul.
But every so often, a true whisky lover opens a bar, and you recognise it instantly. It is that feeling we got when we walked into The Writing Club one weekend afternoon.
