Yes it is good stuff, classic, but very good. Don't mix with something else. You can add a little drop of water to "open" the whisky (I don't do).

Hi,

Since I came back to France I offered two bottles of Indian single malt whisky to my father in law, Rampur and Paul John.

Rampur is a very classic whisky. This is very good stuff. Try it!

After the Rampur we tried the peated single malt whisky from Paul John. If you already love peated whisky (as Islay whiskies (30 years ago I spent a week on this fabulous island)) you must try it. It's great.

No, I bought in Paris.

I saw a bottle (I don't remember which one) in Mumbai airport : the price was not very interesting (a little better than in a Paris shop).

Paul John is an excellent whisky in my opinion..

The best thing is that even my local Marks and Spencers in a remote corner of Britain has it in stock.

Not the peated one

I have to try the Brillance we see via your link.

If you like "the taste of the peat" (It sounds like a thriller title) try it !

Amrut is famous but...

...But I have been told that Amrut is made from Scottish Barley. I love Scottish people (since Mary Stuart we are united by the Auld Alliance...) but...

...But I will try Amrut later because first I was looking for an Indian single malt.

Trust me, Rampur and the peated Paul John are very good.

I used to hate peaty whisky but I am slowly liking it as I am getting older .

I have worked in Inverness in the early part of this century ( in the northern part of Scotland ) .
It was a great place to potentially do a very good whisky tour.

However this was when I used to hate whisky and only liked beer. Missed the opportunity to visit places where my favourites are made like Dalwhinnie, Glenmorangie etc.

It is certainly...fake news. One of my favourite tipples. Not available in certain States though. Dunno why?
Luckily enough, available at the official "permit" shops in my State.

Available as a medical necessity, I suppose, with a chit from a physician.

Thanks, but no need for us to have a chit: ferriners are assumed to be drug addicted alcoholics, and to keep them stabilized the wise State of Gujarat allows them alcohol without a chit albeit with the most asinine system of rationing.

There were talks of it.

However there is some good news for rum lovers. How brothers Hemant and Vinay are planning to take Old Monk back to its iconic status

You are well informed, Hfot2. It is called a "Health" Permit. Certified as absolutely necessary to carry on the business of living, by the Civil Surgeon , no less.

I too am a patient who requires this medication, btw.
