Good morning,

I have been told about three brands of good Indian Single Malts :

Amrut
John Paul
Rampur

I searched on the Duty Free website of Indira Gandhi Airport and I did not find one of them.

Maybe they forgot to put on the list?

Have you seen one of these brands (I would prefer Rampur ot Paul John) before in the Duty Free shop?

Thanks in advance for your answers

It is very sad, for me, and for the Indian products : the duty free shop is a precious showroom for the products which are shown.

I will buy it in Paris, much more expensive than in India.

I remember buying spirits in India in 1983, rather than soft Scottish misty names, we were sold products made by the Laxmi Chemical Company, or some such. Desperation, but it still hit the spot!

Crying for the demise of Old Monk rum.

Or is that fake news?

in the UK the Paul John brand is available in the spirits section of Marks and Spencer.

http://www.marksandspencer.com/paul-...lp&pdpredirect and can be bought online.

not sure if they do delivery outside the UK though but I can see that you probably might get it cheaper in Paris.

Amrut is rather expensive. In NYC, a shot of Amrut at the nearest WhiskyBar is $20.

Hi,

There is Amrut in Indira Gandhi Airport. No Paul John, no Rampur.

I will buy the bottle of Rampur in Paris (La Maison du Whisky, 63 !). What I read about the Rampur and what I know about my brother in law make me consider this is the right one for his birthday... I will tell you after a shot (He will offer me a shot, I hope...).

Great to hear about Old Monk Rum.

I should of course have researched it further but the person I heard it from is usually very reliable.

Really pleased to hear it's not being discontinued.

I haven't had any for over 10 years now.

That's good. The whisky in your whisky shelf would have aged in all this time

I don't think you have missed much. The taste for the basic version has changed. Even I have shifted to whiskey from the beloved Fatboy bottle.

Good to know that you have shifted to Whisky

But I don't think that the taste of Old Monk has changed. At least in Kolkata we are getting bottles with same flavour & taste as before.

The Paul john is 46% and will do better with a splash of water.
Even Mrs.ukdoctor (who hates whisky ) loves it.

I bought a bottle a few weeks ago from my local marks and spencers and I think its excellent value for money .

M&S also have a Indian wine (don't remember the name ) but was out of stock..
