“The lady would like a single malt!”

I’m a Canadian lass based in Mumbai, India exploring whiskies of the world along with my friends.

In 2011, we went from ad hoc informal tastings here and there to forming a private group that religiously meets monthly. Along the way I became the ‘scribe’ and started publishing tasting notes on my blog “Everyday Asia.”

However these whisky sessions were just the beginning and this blog was born as it grew into a passion worthy of its own home.

In 2015, I founded a “Whisky Ladies” club for just the lasses and our adventures with the “water of life” with a special section devoted to the Whisky Ladies Corner.

This was followed in 2016 by a 3rd club affectionately known as the “BMC” aka the Bombay Malt & Cigar club as our amusing take on the Bombay Municipal Corporation.

  1. Hey, looking for a good beginner whisky from Scotland for my dear 48yo brother for Christmas…I know it’s not much to go by but that’s all I have. He is not into whisky thus far but he enjoys a good life with good foods so I guess there is just this special extra missing for some enjoyable evening 🙂


    • Hey there! One affordable ‘beginner’ whisky that is accessible with some character is a vatted malt ‘Monkey Shoulder’ – a blend of three single malts Kininvie, Balvenie and Glenfiddich. Lots of other options too but this is not a bad place to start. 🙂


    • Ah… my Whisky Lady in India blog… call me a passionate novice who is happy to share! 🙂

      For your travel bug, you may find Everyday Asia amusing too… not so regular with posting but my outlet for stories of everyday life living in Mumbai and travel around Asia. Used to be a LOT of travel a few years ago. Less so now. 🙂

  2. Hi!! would love to join this group. Read about you all through some post. I have been a lover and drinker of single malts since the last 15 odd years. Would be very happy and grateful to be part of your tastings. Thanks
