For those currently sheltering from the monsoon in Kathmandu, or just back from a long, probably damp three-week trek and fancying something a bit more distinctive than another beer – here’s what we recommend.
We were hosted by Proprietor Jim Jones to sample and advise on the Whiskey selection for his outdoor garden, set in the heart of Thamel, Kathmandu.
All of these are distinctive top shelf whiskeys and moonshine, some very popular already and all hailing from the Great American West. From Leopold Bros, the Denver Distillery and Wyoming whiskey.
Just in case you only want one – here are a few of the top quotes and ratings from the nine people across the line of nine whiskeys we sampled, in very discreet sips naturally.
Many thanks for our panel of (now) connoisseurs – and to Jim for hosting the event.
Pairing with French fries and follow with a curry (10/10) recommended.
