Whisky Lady – March Maltiness

As March heated up in Mumbai, Whisky Lady sampling also kept pace…

All three tasting groups had some real gems and discoveries! I also finished the Canadian samples, brushed off posts from the archives and shared an article published in MansWorld (yes I do write for others from time to time).

It also marked two milestones – over 2,000 followers and nearly 200 posts!

Dalmore Smokehead Myckmyra

1st up was the Whisky Ladies of Mumbai with a sweetly smokey session covering:

KilchomanPeat

2nd was our original club with a remarkable exploration of Kilchoman with food…. mmmmmm good! 

  • Machir Bay 46% (predominantly bourbon) paired with mixed micro greens and smoked cheese, olive oil, almonds and cherry tomatoes
  • Sanaig 46% (predominantly sherry) paired with smoked chicken / smoked vegetable ratatouille with almond milk mash
  • Sherry Cask 60.6% (100% sherry) paired with chocolate ganache

BMC Cask Strength Hand Filled Whiskies

And last but certainly not least was the new entrant… Bombay Malt & Cigar (BMC) with a remarkable line-up of cask strength whiskies hand-filled by our host at the distilleries between 2006 to 2012. Yeah… we were gob-smacked!

  • Glenmorangie 10 year (1995 / 9 Nov 2006) Cask No 13038, Bottle No 45, 59.3% – Clear favourite as kept revealing more the longer you spent with it!
  • Glenfiddich 15 year (19 April 2012) Batch No 15, Bottle No 11/15, 55% – Cut above your average Glenfiddich 15 year
  • Abelour 16 year (10 June 1995 / 6 Sept 2011) Cask No 2303 (1st fill sherry), Bottle No 180, 57.2% – Sherry berry beautiful bomb!
Canada gift! (Whisky Lady)

Having caught up in February with January‘s tasting marathon, turned to the archives with:

I also shared one of my rare ‘published’ forays… with a few thoughts on:
