Glenmorangie held their Orange Retro Funk party at the new and exclusive spot The Pool the other night. With the tagline "Unnecessarily Well Made", I felt it was a rather clever play of words. Being there that night with unlimited glasses of Glenmorangie The Original ten year old whisky was an experience in itself.

|The Venue for Glenmorangie's Orange Night|
The venue for Glenmorangie's Orange Retro Funk was at The Pool, which was a pretty new spot along Jalan Ampang. Now I've been to this spot previously when Spasso Milano was here, before they relocated Pavilion KL. The theme for the night was orange, with some futuristic ladies playing their part with orange dress-up and body paint. It was pretty cool to chill out and enjoy the ambiance under the moonlight sky.

Glenmorangie The Original is a Ten Years Old whisky mainly matured in ex-Bourbon casks that’s made from slow growth, air dried American Oak from the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. The selection of casks were important to bring the lemony gold colour as well as the aroma of mandarin, lemon, apple, pear and peach fruits with hints of Vanilla.

It was always nice to catch up with friends with a glass of alcohol in hand, this time with Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch Whisky and heart thumping music, it was all good. The night began at 9pm, and continued on until the wee hours of the morning. Check out some of the photos I manage to take of my friends that night.

While chilling there, I was educated a bit more on Glnmorangie, of the fact that their whisky came in a variety of types namely The Original which we had, The Lasanta (flavoured with honeycomb and caramel toffee), The Quinta Ruban (with hints of dark chocolates as well as peeled mandarin oranges), The Nectar D’ Or (extra maturation in specifically hand selected Sauternes wine barriques). There were some limited editions as well, The Glenmorangie 18 years old, Astar and Signet.

Throughout the night, Glenmorangie entertained its guests with music, free flow of whisky and some short question and answer sessions to win a couple of iPad covers. I personally felt it would have been way better had there been some performances on top of the music, but the friends make up for it.

Extraordinary results can be achieved by paying attention to details and subtleties that often go unnoticed. Imagine, for example, the sound of whisky being poured into a glass, the rush of the liquid hitting the crystal in a steady pour, and then, the stillness as it settles. Most people probably never pause to contemplate this, but it is precisely this sound that designer Philip Michael Wolfson has transposed into design for SOUNDFORM FLUID, his breathtakingly sculptural pop-up bar for Glenmorangie.

Overall Glenmorangie's Orange Party at The Pool Kuala Lumpur was a good night out, and I'll be looking forward to more Glenmorangie nights.
Malaysian single malt aficionados and fans of contemporary design will be the first in South East Asia to have the opportunity to enjoy an ‘Unnecessarily Well Made’ experience of Glenmorangie whisky at the Soundform Fluid Bar. The bar will be part of a featured showcase taking place at the concourse area outside Robinsons in The Gardens, Mid Valley City in April 2012. Be sure not to miss out on this truly distinctive experience with Glenmorangie.
