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:

Whisky Lady – December Delights

Well… my Whisky Lady adventures continue!

With December being full of merriment and mischief as the year came to a close, our original tasting group cancelled our monthly tasting session with many members traveling.

However my new group – The Whisky Ladies of Mumbai – were not deterred from swirling, sniffing, sipping and mmmmm…. swallowing!

In honour of one member’s last days in India before returning to the US, we decided to enjoy a Goan theme featuring a quintet of whiskies kindly provided by Paul John’s master distiller Michael John for our ladies sampling pleasure.

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…)
