Whisky Lady – December Delights

Global views


Well… my Whisky Lady adventures continue!

With December being full of merriment and mischief as the year came to a close, our original tasting group cancelled our monthly tasting session with many members traveling.

However my new group – The Whisky Ladies of Mumbai – were not deterred from swirling, sniffing, sipping and mmmmm…. swallowing!

In honour of one member’s last days in India before returning to the US, we decided to enjoy a Goan theme featuring a quintet of whiskies kindly provided by Paul John’s master distiller Michael John for our ladies sampling pleasure.

Here’s what our ladies quaffed in our Paul John evening with some rather cheeky tasting notes!

For me, December also meant a trip to Singapore which whisky-wise featured:

I caught up on sharing tasting notes for whiskies sampled during my June 2015 Singapore trip:

Finally posted notes from the July 2015 master class with Master Distiller Stuart Harvey:

My other goal was to ‘catch-up’ posting about all the whiskies tasted in November! Yes this is a repeat of last month’s list… just now with  links to all the tasting notes!!

    A very comprehensive and varied tasting list.
    Would have liked to try a few myself.
    Happy New Year!
    Looking forward to your 2016 posts.
