“I like the label!” Great King Street, Starward, Smoky Goat

There is the old adage “Don’t judge a book by its cover!” However let’s face it, we can’t help but be swayed by the ‘packaging’ sometimes!

The theme for our May Whisky Ladies evening was a trio of whiskies selected by our host simply because “I like the label!”

One was a familiar favourite and the other two were completely new to both her and our merry bunch of whisky women.

We sampled:

With some very clear ‘wins’ – the ever lovely Compass Box treat and the surprisingly fabulous Starward from Australia.

And a very clear ‘no!’.. yeah this one decidedly got our goat for being unpalatable…

  1. Nice idea to think about the labels! 🙂 Packaging is important. At one stage I thought about having a sub-collection of whiskies that come in purple boxes and labels. Perhaps you could have another tasting with the ladies where the whiskies are all from interesting bottle shapes? There’s some nice ones out there, even if the whisky inside doesn’t always match the presentation.
