Whisky Lady – November 2017

November brought a trip to Germany and Singapore (with a side dish of WhiskyLive) that kept tastings on track for the  Whisky Lady!

The best was all three groups aligned to my mad travel schedule so there was a concentrated burst of all three sessions in less than a week!

Our Whisky Ladies enjoyed a carefully selected affordable trio Gordon & MacPhail:

For our Bombay Malt & Cigar  gents, we explored a “Peat Unusual” theme with narry an Islay whisky among the selection…

  • Lowland – Alisa Bay 48.9%*
  • Islands – Ledaig “Very Cloudy” Vintage 2008 40%*
  • Highland – Loch Lomond Peated 46%*
  • Speyside – BenRiach 25 year 46%*

(*Tasting notes coming soon!)

Just as the BMC gents explored peat, our original group explored different Sherry Elements:

  • Oban Limited Edition (2000/2015) 43%*
  • Amrut Intermediate Sherry 57.1%*
  • Kilkerran 10 year “Work in Progress Batch #6 46%*

(*Tasting notes coming in December… too much to squeeze into one month!)

Thrown into the mix was a Glenmorangie evening revisiting The Original, The Lasanta, Quinta Ruban, Nectar d’Or and the piece de resistance… the Private Edition 8 Bacalta…

Back in October, our original club had a remarkable Rye Night with tasting notes by our guest writer Nikkhil published in November:

I also got around to sharing notes from a peaty persuasion minis session:

Plus a revisit of Glenfarclas Minis:

  • 15 year 46% – Straightforward, no pretence
  • 105 60% – A full strength sherry berry cake, best had with a few drops of water
  • 21 year 43% – Approachable and multi-dimensional
  • 25 year 43% – A 2nd date dram that needs time to reveal its full character…

And guess what? I’m back on another plane  to Germany next week… let’s see what more can be discovered!
