PIPER-HEIDSIECK CUVÉE ESSEN­TIEL AT­LAS

Epicure - - CELLAR CHOICE -

New fea­tures at this year’s edi­tion (3 to 4 Novem­ber) in­clude a to­tal of 14 mas­ter­classes, where you can taste ex­tremely rare malts such as Karuizawa 1978 and Port Ellen 22 Year Old, or at­tend the Bruich­lad­dich Black Art launch. The for­mat of the tast­ings at the main room also sees a limit of 10 whisky coupons (at 10ml each) per ticket, un­like the free pour at pre­vi­ous years. Ex­pe­ri­enced pun­ters, how­ever, will still be able to en­joy the VIP room with un­lim­ited rare pours. Tick­ets from $119. An­daz Sin­ga­pore, 5 Fraser Street. whiskylive.sg Such is the clout of At­las that it is the first in the world to work with Piper-hei­d­se­ick on the Essen­tiel in­dus­try pro­gramme. Ex-at­las som­me­lier Ma­son Ng and cur­rent head som­me­lier Lu­cas Liu met with ex-chef de cave Séver­ine Fr­erson to taste and se­lect the fi­nal blend. This first run of 2,500 bot­tles holds crisp but not overly ag­gres­sive notes of Meyer lemon, fresh red ap­ple, white jas­mine, crushed al­mond and the savoury ac­cents of porcini mush­room. $25 by glass, $150 per bot­tle (dine in) at At­las
