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 :

(*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!

Whisky Lady – September 2017

September’s Whisky Lady tastings was a mixed month as one club didn’t meet and another did but it was a rare session I missed due to travel! Naturally I augmented with other experiences and shared the final set of tasting notes from our remarkable July which had seven different sessions!

The gents from the Bombay Malt & Cigar club met late August with an unusual selection of three Single Grains and two Indian whiskies:

Our whisky ladies had a lovely Sunday sundowner with this quartet:

Whereas our original club enjoyed the following (alas without me as I was off gallivanting in the North America!):

  • Writers Tears Cask Strength (2016 Release) 53%
  • Springbank 12 year Burgundy (June 2016 Release) Cask Strength 53.5%
  • Springbank 12 year (January 2017 Release) Cask Strength 54.2%

I also held a bottle polishing-off session with experiments in barley, wheats and more:

Plus a sample session with Duty-Free No Age Statement (NAS) drams:

I shared July’s tasting notes from our “Dream Drams” evening with an exceptional set enjoyed with India’s Malt Maniac Krishna Nakula featuring:

Plus revived the Whisky Tips with:
