thewhiskylady - 2015-08-25

Have you ever wondered if your astrological sign could have any impact on your whisky preferences ? Probably not (If you answered yes to this rethorical question… Ok I don’t know, you’re just freaking me out!). I’m then more than happy to help you find peace in your inner selves for this year 2015  (which is almost coming to an end now but who cares about timing – here’s only about drinking). Now sit back, relax an let me enlighten your year – or at least what’s left! [Seems like I actually enjoy myself speaking like some sort of spiritual guru… I should probably consider moving to Indiana and set up a cloning business – Yes, Jim McEwan would be first on the list! ]


Baby, you’re a firework! Colorful experiences await you in 2015, Aries, thanks to expansive Jupiter’s long run through Leo, your fifth house of passion, creativity and self-expression.  You’re more bad-ass than ever (I mean look at those glorious horns… ). 2015 is the year you can fully express yourself and tell to the world who you really are.
Your dram of choice this year ? Octomore 7.2, beauty and the peat !


Enter the bull! As the calendar turned to 2015 and the clock stroke midnight, the moon was in Taurus in most parts of the world. You’re feeling full of hope and enthusiasm this year, ready to charge and tackle a personal goal with gusto. Savor this confidence surge and take a moment to capture a few resolutions or intentions. It’s time you finally start this whisky collection you’ve talking your friends about for months – you’re even willing to explore unknown malted horizons…
Your dram of choice this year ? Three Ships 10 YRS, an exceptional expression from South Africa !


You’re totally a creative visionary and that powerful and exuberant influence will push you to new heights for 2015. Jupiter, the planet of luck, abundance, and the big picture continues to light up the zone of your chart ruling your mind, communication, siblings, and daily interactions. This makes life more playful and joyful with childlike enthusiasm all around. You need an easy-drinking dram to share in good company!

Your dram of choice this year ? Teeling Single Grain !


Saturn is finally finishing up his work in your love, children, and creativity domain this fall. He’ll be back for a brief checkup and finalization, and much of your attention will be on your daily schedule and rituals, and finding some kind of magical alchemy between your work and health. You have a tendency to work, work, work and then crash and not want to leave the house for days. This year you will find some boundaries and structure around routines thanks to the presence of the cosmic taskmaster, Saturn, taking up residence in your Sixth House of responsibilities. You need an everyday dram to sip after your hard-working days.

The royal treatment continues, Leo! You still have the glorious power of Jupiter in your sign for the first half of 2015, so go ahead and rock that joie de vivre that you rock so well. As sad as it may seem to part ways with the generous abundance of the big jovial planet in your sign this summer, you can take comfort knowing that the second half of the year will bring you luck and abundance in the financial department. It’s a win-win all the way around for you this year, Leo. You can then perfectly indulge in some rare old bottlings you’ve been dreaming about for years!

Your dram of choice this year ? Balvenie 50 YRS, let’s get crazy!



This year will be a karmic balancing act, wherein every decision is carefully weighed and measured. You understand the importance of considering all potential consequences before acting, but this year it’s almost instinctual for you to stop, drop and rethink before any rolling happens. Your ruling planet (Mercury) will retrograde through each of the Air signs this year, giving you intellectual wisdom. You’re the whisky investor kind of person and you’re now only looking for limited releases with high investment potential.

Your dram of choice this year ? Mortlach 25 YRS, a huge investing potential !
