Tasting Sessions

A few years ago, friends in Mumbai and I decided to meet monthly to sample a mutual passion – single malts. Together we began a journey exploring the wonderful world of whisky – discovering gems, duds and many somewhere between.

Along the way, I became the ‘scribe’ of our sampling encounters and shared these observations first on my other blog Everyday Asia and then here on Whisky Lady in India. In 2015, I started the Whisky Ladies of Mumbai with the most fabulous women you can imagine! Then in 2016, a new group was added to the mix – the Bombay Malt + Cigar club. Beyond that, from time to time, I’m part of smaller ‘mini’ sessions, and fortunate to occasionally join master classes and special events too.

Welcome to the chronicle of our collective tasting sessions!
