This is a nice friendly bar with a good selection of malt whisky. Good atmosphere with plenty of tourist. Only complaint is malt whisky is over priced . Worth a short visit but drop run up a tab .

Back again on our now annual lads trip to Inverness and here every evening, once more a taste of Whiskyteer heaven!

As ever, the range of whiskies on offer impresses mightily and the top class staff make this place - huge shout out to the awesome Sarah and the legend Charlie.

The ever changing global clientele gives this place a real interesting vibe with aficionados of the water of life making their pilgrimage and meeting fellow worshippers!

Only been home three days and missing it already - looking forward to next year’s trip!

After being recommended to visit The Malt Room by another local bar we decided why not. Neither my partner or myself really like whiskey, but when In Scotland we thought why not.
The staff were brilliant. Very very friendly and knowledgable. We tried a couple of whiskeys including the 40year old tomatin single malt at a whopping £200 a shot! (Worthy every penny in our eyes!) The barman was very informative about this whiskey and we really felt like we were apart of an experience! The bar itself is very cosy and had immaculate ambience. And you must try the cocktails! Delicious. Thank you guys!

The Malt Room was the best evening or our 13 day trip to England and Scotland!! Try to schedule it in. The atmosphere was cozy and the whiskey presentation was exactly what we hoped. We learned about Scotland, we learned about Scottish Whisky and heard great songs.

In need of an evening drink (specifically whiskey) we found the Malt Room down a small alley off one of the main streets. I started with a beer and then followed with a whiskey while my wife chose a prosecco followed by another whiskey. The beer and wine were fine and the whiskeys excellent. The advice from the friendly staff was outstanding, they really know their stuff and are happy to give good recommendations. We returned a few nights later so clearly we were happy. One work of warning, the bar is relatively small, there was always a happy atmosphere but you may have to wait if you want to sit down.

Incredible whisky tasting experience. Top of the line bartender helped us w selection. We did two flights. He also took the time to explain each whisky, distiller and answer our questions. Very quiet and relaxing. Our best stop in Inverness. Highly recommend.

Wonderful visit and historical tour of Inverness and surrounding area! To top it off we actually were able to meet and talk with the head of Clan MacKenzie. Such a nice man and such a special visit!!

Recently visited “the malt room” for a well organised but laid back Stagg event.

Not only was the booking easy, it was supremely personalised, with the owner himself.
We couldn’t have asked for more.

Once we arrived we had an excellent room and atmosphere for the occassion.
A special 5 sample, high end whisky tasting.
Excellent setup and knowledgable, friendly staff.

We had Paddy leading the tastings and his knowledge and passion for whisky excelled all others i have met. The selection was superb and was a well priced event considering the length of time, food provided and enjoyment of it all.

Everyone commented on how flying to inverness was worth it for this session.

A vast selection of all types of whisky. Something for everyone.

We will be going back for more private whisky tastings.
