Whisky @ Stables Hullett House,1881Heritage, 2A Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui Tel: 3988 0104 The vibe: spot on — just the kind of ambience you want in a whisky bar: dark wood, low light, good but quiet music and lots of deep leather couches to sink into after a hard day at the office. It's good to see Hullett House continue to take advantage of their historic location: the space is well-restored and the black and white whisky-related photos complement the heritage feel. The drinks: the cocktails we tried were quite good. The "HM" Choice (HK$148) stands for House Mixologist Choice and on the day we went was a very nice barrel-aged Negroni. Still, this is the kind of bar where you should keep it simple. The best reason to visit — aside from the chocolate-dipped bacon — is, of course, the whiskies. The menu boasts a great selection of Japanese whiskies and scotches, as well as Irish whiskies and a good bourbon selection, all for much cheaper than you would be able to find on the island. I went for the Blanton's Single Barrel (HK$138) — my go-to bourbon in the US and one I am always thrilled to find here. The powerful flavours of burnt caramel and vanilla made me homesick. A local seasonal brew from Young Master Ales (HK$88) was the perfect end to the night. The verdict: it is difficult to find fault with Whisky @ Stables. I just hope more people will be willing to make the trek across the water, as both times I've visited this casual establishment it has been empty. Maybe this will help if I say it again: they have chocolate-covered bacon.
