I've blogged about the First Class Lounge and its booze here but it seems that the new additions to the already wide spread of booze is continuing. So cheers to that! They are in fact constantly trying to improve on their food selection and also the drinks selection especially for fussy people like me. With the constant bugging and constructive criticism... we all can have more booze now!
One of the new champagnes that the lounge is serving now is the Louis De Sacy Brut Grand Cru. This LDS vineyards is in Verzy and the Sacy family has settled there since 1633. There is not much write up on this Champagne as it's one of those boutique champagnes that is limited in production and probably lacked publicity.
It's not a very expensive Champagne. Maybe in the range of RM100-RM200 duty free. On the palate, the champagne is toasty with lots of citrus notes but I think it's wee too young. The bubblies aren't that refine too. Maybe it's not my kinda champagne.
Another new Champagne being served at the lounge is the Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Reserve. And since I've tried this Champagne before, I didn't consume any of it that day. This bottle of Nicolas Feuillatte has been aged 3 years and it has very delicate bubbles. It might not taste like a DP or a M&C but it certainly has a distinctive taste of its own because it has hints of almonds and hazelnuts.
Actually my favourite of all Champagnes is Nicolas's Brut Rosé! It's dry, full-bodied and light. You can taste the berries and currants and the salmon-pink tone of the champagne is so soothing! This Champagne goes very well with Japanese food which is evident in all my Japanese meals at Yoyogi in Singapore! Btw,
I don't think you can get the Rosé here unfortunately, you can now as told by my friend. You can get it at Asiaeuro.
Check out its website. It's impressive.
At the same time, I had this opprotunity to try something which I've never thought I would give it a go. It's the Sheridan's Coffee Layered Liquer. I never give coffee liquer a second thought nor would I ever learn to appreciate it but I have to admit it does taste good. And pretty interesting too for myself. The bottle itself is unique because it's a combination of two different liquids into one bottle and yet it's separated. The noozle allows one to pour the different liquer one at a time depending on your preference.
You can read one of the interesting reviews here.
It actually tasted better than Baileys although it's a little bit sweet. I like how the white is separated from the black! You can get this at below RM100 duty free which is really a good deal! Even the bottle itself is worth keeping.
I was told that Zouk KL will be playing a tribute to MJ tonight at mambo jambo...
