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 – 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…
