I enjoy a quiet place- music not too loud - a place to have a conversation- business discussion and most of all to unwind - one answer = The Den!!!The place i visit the most. The ambiance that you feel...the decor...the way it's lit up, is just so relaxing. They serve the finest hand picked Single Cask Whiskeys and Cigars as well!! I have fallen in love with the whiskeys there. This coming from a man who has been loyal to Jack Daniels almost all his life - I'm now a changed man. Tremendously big Thumbs Up to Ms Natasha who has educated me and everyone whom i've taken there since my first experience on the types of whiskies - where they come from - the history....u name it - she knows it! She has a wealth of knowledge about these whiskeys. I have even learned what whiskey would suit my mood at that given time. Imagine that. Just tell her what your taste buds are after - and she will name the perfect whiskey for you. I have personally tried quite a number of whiskeys there....and i enjoy all of them. Though i must say that i have my favorites. So be sure to pop in The Den and tickle your tongue with the finest whiskeys around!! And at the same time get educated on whiskeys! A good place to chill and partake knowledge of such which is a rare as i have been to many other places where most of them are rather reserved when it comes to educating us (whiskey enthusiasts) on what we are consuming....Overall - The Den is a must Visit!!

This superb little hangout place is situated within the new boutique hotel, Macalister Mansion along the Jalan Macalister.Ultra small in size but superbly design and very cozy place to relax and have a drink especially their specialty single cask whisky. Quite a good selection of the limited single cask scotch, on top of other blended and single malt whisky, including some Japanese labels.I don't smoke cigars but my friends do and they thoroughly enjoyed the night as well. Bravo!

We managed to drop by with some local friends during our last night stay at Macalister Mansion.The Den is located right at the front of the main entrance of the Macalister Mansion. It is very small in size. It is practically a corner for fine whisky and cigars. The ambience is quiet and dim, and the deisgn is exquisite and tastefully done. Excellent for a good chat and catch up with my old friends.The choice fo cigars is not too much, but all good selection. They even have the Cohiba Behike, which is the most exclusive lĂ­ne of the well known Habanos brand. What a pleasant surprise!Apart from the popular brands of blended and single malt whisky, they also serve quite a good selection of the single cask whisky ranging from different regions in Islay, Campbeltown, Highland, Lowland, Speyside and etc...Wow! Another surprise find at Macalister Mansion and definitely in this small island of Penang!The lady Manager there was very friendly and very knowldegable in whisky. She was kind enough to explain and introduce the various types of whisky to us. We tried the whisky flight, which is basically a tasting set of vairous types of whisky from different regions. Very interesting!A must try for the whisky connoisseur!
