While I may live in India, I’m originally from Canada and the land of my birth is celebrating 150 years today!
In terms of whiskies, most of what is available in Canada isn’t to my taste. However a special treat from my June 2016 trip was acquiring a brand new fresh “hot off” the distillery barrel single malt! Shelter Point single-handedly brought Canadian pride to this Whisky Lady!
I first shared it with our Whisky Ladies of Mumbai in January 2017 followed by a shared nip before the International Scotch Day (by far the best whisky of the night!) and then a rather companionable evening with a fellow whisky lady after we drained the last drops of our Nordic samples.
It is one of those whiskies that just got better and better the more you sipped.
Each time I returned to it, I enjoyed it even more!
No surprise then that they sold out!
I can only hope that Shelter Point’s 1st batch from 2016 is the start of many more interesting and enjoyable whiskies to come!!
So on Canada Day – Cheers to you Shelter Point, eh?!
