Whisky Lady – January Journal

It is Friday night and for you whisky drinkers, time to make you jealous!

Some may recall I decided one of my vices passions deserved its own little home. Thus Whisky Lady was born.

I also promised to share whisky posts here only once a month…

My 1st monthly malt missive is a bit of a catch up so bear with me!

Last night we kicked off the new year with:

December was a “World Tour” with:

  • Hammer Head from the Czech republic – Curiosity not craftsmanship
  • Glen Breton from Canada – Not worth repeating!
  • Nikka from the barrel from Japan – Well done for a blend!
  • Mortlach 15 year from Scotland – Mmmm… need I say more?

In November, we had a decidedly American twang – “Bring on the bourbon & rye” with:

  • Russel’s Reserve from Kentucky – Easy drinking
  • Rough Rider “Bull Moose” from New York – Not half bad for a one year old…
  • Breckenridge Special Reserve from Colorado – Kick up your heels!

I also opened up the cupboard and sampled:

Top pick from this lot? Still the Hakushu 18 year, though do rather enjoy the Monkey Shoulder and Mortlach 15 year.

Hakushu 18 year anyone?

Hakushu 18 year anyone?

Slainthe!

  1. I would really love to know more about good whiskeys but I never got around except a couple of tastings. Especially here in my hometown the chances of having a good tasting round are pretty low (might be also because I dont know anyone here :P)

  2. I’m not a whisky or whiskey fan, but I do love to see someone who appreciates it!

    Need to broaden my horizons to Japanese whiskies….
