Whisky Lady – October 2017

October was the 1st month that I juggled a new full-time ‘regular’ job that immediately plunged me into a demanding yet incredibly interesting project. And yet, what is a Whisky Lady to do but keep up with tastings too!

Thankfully it was a ‘slow’ month with only the Whisky Ladies and Original club’s having full tasting sessions. To keep things interesting, there were also were a few minis sessions too!

Our Whisky Ladies celebrated Diwali in all our finery and accompanied the festivities with Asia focused whiskies:

Whereas our original club had a remarkable rye focused evening:

  • Cody Road Rye (Iowa)
  • Cascadia Rye (Português Port Barrels) 43.5% (Washington)
  • High West Whiskey Double Rye 46% (Utah)
  • Pikesville Straight Rye

My mini sessions had three distinctly different bents… The 1st was peaty with:

  • Peat Chimney 12 year 40%
  • Big Peat 46%, Longrow 46%
  • BenRiach Quarter Cask 46%
  • Ledaig 10 year 46.3%

The 2nd was a revisit of Glenfarclas with:

  • Glenfarclas 15 year 46%
  • 105 60%
  • 21 year 43%
  • 25 year 43%

And the 3rd was not whisky at all but rum!

  • Diplomatico 40%
  • Zacapa 23 Solera 40% vs XO 40%
  • El Dorado 12 year 40%
  • Criterion 10 year 56%

October also introduced a new guest writer from our original club – Nikkhil Shirodkar – who provided the terrific notes on the September session I missed:

While I missed Mumbai, I did explore a whisky watering hole in Toronto… where I sampled a trio of bourbons at 1602 Dundas:

The month closes with my hopping on a plane to Germany… let’s see what can be discovered next!
