Whisky Lady – August 2017

August was a bit of a catch-up month for Whisky Lady tastings… chock full of notes from July’s excesses with even more from those sessions to come next month.

August sessions were held with each Mumbai based whisky clubs – yet two were of a decidedly social bent!

The Original’s session featured an Islay Trio:

The Whisky Ladies turned two! With a celebration of whisky women fellowship…

And finally on 31st August 2017, we had our Bombay Malt & Cigar partners night where we explored a trio of single grains:

  • Girvan 8 years (2006) Cask 532398 46% (Berrys’)
  • Strathclyde 25 year (1990/2016) DL11335 51.5% (Douglas Laing’s Old Particular)
  • Invergordon 28 year (1987/2015) DL 11004 56.5% (Douglas Laing’s Old Particular)

Followed by two Indian whiskies:

  • Sula’s Eclipse Blended Whisky 42.8%
  • Rampur 43%

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 – March Madness

Welcome to Whisky Ladys 3rd instalment… with a decidedly desi bent to our sampling adventures.

Just as February had a Japanese theme, March came home to feature whiskies from India! I could just as easily have called this ‘India pride month!’

While our formal monthly tasting was cancelled, most of our group took part in two events covering both of India’s Single Malt distilleries – Amrut and Paul John! (more…)

Oban, Deanston, The Six Isles + Yellow Spot

This is the 1st tasting notes post from a monthly private whisky club in Mumbai, India. We are into our 3rd year and somewhere along the way I became the unofficial ‘scribe’. Hope you enjoy!

Following our standard format, we blind tasted before revealing the whisky. This month featured: Oban 14 year, Deanston 12 year, The Six Isles and Yellow Spot.

“Oh us fortunate few! What an evening it was!”
