Whisky Lady – March Madness?

Once upon a time, March 31st used to mean year-end sales push with everyone running around, heaps of energy, effort and much more!

While I no longer have such direct business pressures, I do still need to do the accounting books so did a little whisky cabinet spring cleaning to pull out a few older oxidation bottles to have on hand for a late evening post numbers wind down. Great plan… til a cold happened. And I never waste good whisky on a stuffed up nose!!

So instead, my March round-up will not feature my hidden gems, instead share that it did bring some merriment and mischief with a trip to Jakarta and Singapore – including a nip into The Single Cask and La Maison du Whisky.

Alas March missed two of our usual tasting group sessions – both the BMC and our underground original club. However nothing was going to stop our Whisky Ladies from their monthly tasting!

And what did the ladies chose? A few less common slightly ‘Risky Whiskies‘:

Plus a birthday bonus and bourbon:

I also shared notes from an amazing evening with Krishna Nakula when we sampled:

Plus a few extras like:

Jakarta Journeys…

It is time to stock up on tolakangin, Toraja, Lampung and other coffees, perhaps even some Indomie for a friend… yes I’m on a plane back to Jakarta.

I spent most of December 2016 in Jakarta… long days, late nights but thoroughly worth the time investment. At that point, I thought my job was done and didn’t expect to return until a new project began.

However thanks to some creative re-allocation of who does what, I’m delighted to be back -even if it is just a quick trip!

I’m looking forward to returning to my favourite serviced apartment tonight, catching up with friends mid-week…

Then hopping on another plane to Singapore to check-in on company related matters, re-stock on interesting whiskies, hopefully catch-up with even more friends… mayhap a business meeting too if can swing it!

In short, I’m delighted to be back in the air, doing what I enjoy and hope this trip leads to even more such opportunities…
