Kotmj, fyi its closed on sunday. Its the row behind Maybank, so basically the inner layer facing the MBPJ Tower. The wine selection is good and cheap, i know some people buying their wedding drinks there. I've seen bottles of champagne Veuve Clicquot that is cheaper than duty free. The salesmen are knowledgeable, they look like samseng and they are btw. If you want recommendation ask them, they'll give good recommendations.
6, your on dude till your next hols.

I hope to drop by this Saturday.
Kotmj, i do suggest goin to Tong Woh at PJ State (MBPJ building). It has one the cheapest price in KL and also the biggest cellar in KL for wine and whisky because they are biggest distributor of alcohol in Malaysia. They have an amazing selection for wine, they carry the gran crus. I get all my Japanese whisky from them. Talisker is available at KLIA duty free so my suggestion is to buy at duty free if you can because the Talisker i bought at klia was 200 plus, my guess at tong woh would be 400. So my suggestion go for Yamazaki 12 which cost 270 and you got spare change for a good bottle of wine. The reason i suggested Yamazaki, i could never find any Japanese whisky at duty free.

Monday was an amarone della valpolicella, I think a 2003 Altesini. Very intense blackcurrent aroma, I immediately thought of petrol due to the concentration. Not a fan, but I probably shoulda let it stand some time.
Tuesday was some gibberish wine recommended by an otherwise-excellent restaurant (best aglio olio I've ever had). Next-to-nil acidity meant it tasted like grape juice with alcohol.
Friday was a 2010 Banfi rosso di montalcino, from aforementioned restaurant. Surprisingly enjoyable to drink - plenty of fruit with good balance. Great beginners' wine.
Saturday was a 2007 Terre de Barolo barbaresco... cost thrice as much as the Banfi for just a pinch more complexity. Otherwise, a decent wine but nothing to shout about.
More excited by what I bought back - 2003 brunello by Banfi and a 2004 sagrantino from Arnaldo Caprei. Latter was recommended by the shop assistant in DFS. I hope she's right, because I passed up a couple of Gaja wines for it. When I got back, I walked into a nearby wine bistro with an enoteca machine, they were selling Gaja's 2007 barbaresco for $172 a glass... I could've gotten a bottle for that price!

Back when I lived in Europe the best value wines were Spanish Gran Reservas that often have a wire net around the bottle. When I was writing my Master's thesis I consumed a bottle every couple of days.
