Whisky Lady – December 2017

December brought yet another a trip to Germany with much merriment and mischief for this  Whisky Lady on my return!

All three groups had an opportunity to meet…

Normally our original group does not meet in December. However I used my powers of persuasion to pull together an ‘off the books’ evening to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary. Our “O Canada” evening included:

Our Whisky Ladies embraced the season with an Après-ski theme featuring:

Keeping with the decidedly non-Scottish theme for December, our Bombay Malt & Cigar did a “BMC goes Bourbon” night with:

There was also an impromptu evening of Sinful Samples :

Plus I played some catch-up with notes from previous sessions, with more to come in the new year!

Here are notes from our November BMC’s “Peat Unusual” theme with narry an Islay whisky…

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

Plus our original group’s November exploration of Sherry Elements:

Still to come is a wee glimpse into a Glenmorangie evening revisiting The Original, The Lasanta, Quinta Ruban, Nectar d’Or and the piece de resistance… the Private Edition 8 Bacalta…

*Whisky tasting notes coming soon…ish

Hope you had a terrific 2017 and may 2018 bring you much malty merriment!

Whisky Lady – October offerings…

Happy Diwali and Hallowe’en everyone!!!

As the lights glow, firecrackers pop and people get dressed up in silly costumes, time for my monthly Whisky Lady round up! Even being away in Jakarta for a good part of September and early October did not deter sampling adventures….

Nor an opportunity to share an extract of an interview with Inver House (AnCnoc, Balblair, Old Pulteney, Speyburn, Hanky Bannister, Caorunn) Master Distiller Stuart Harvey on whether “Single Malt drinkers are promiscuous.(more…)

Whisky Lady – November Novelties

As quiet as this blog Everyday Asia’s been lately, my other blog Whisky Lady has been quintuply busy!

November brought incredible ‘novelty’ with a grand total of five (yup! That’s 1, 2, 3, 4.. 5!!) whisky sampling occasions exploring a wide range from the affordable and accessible to the impossibly rare with insane prices!

It was such a busy whisky tasting month that most reviews started in the status of *Notes forthcoming! (more…)

Whisky Lady – April adventures

Welcome to Whisky Ladys 4th instalment summarising the April’s whisky tasting adventures.

While our formal tasting session was cancelled, the month had two highlights:

  • Whisky Lady invades Man’s World with a Glenmorangie event and interview
  • Tasting take two revisiting Japanese and Indian whiskies from previous tasting sessions

Whisky Lady in a Man’s World 

Thanks to an accidental rescue, Whisky Lady now has a regular whisky feature in Man’s World magazine. The 1st assignment took me to Delhi to interview Dr Bill Lumsden, Director of Distilling, Whisky Creation and Whisky Stock for The Glenmorangie Company. (more…)

Tasting Notes from 16 May 2013

Following our standard format, we blind tasted samples before revealing the whisky. This month featured: Singleton, GlenDronach, All Malt and the Belgian Owl. (more…)
