Did you just step out of a party in which you met some fine gents who talked endlessly about a 30 year old scotch? Or did you taste the best ‘Poison’ last evening? Forget the whisky you can't even get the pronunciation right? What does peat taste like for you to recognize it in whisky? Fruit in whisky? Hell, what is “Single Malt”? Blended whisky not good enough? Or are you just enamored by the yarn that has been woven around the world of whiskies? A few years ago, I would have said ‘Yes’ to all of the above questions. But over the last year or so, my passion became an obsession and the quest to find some answers and raise many more questions led me on to create the Single Malt Amateurs Club (SMAC).
SMAC was created with the intention of sharing with you my learning on the subject of Single Malt whisky. Having a passion for Single Malt whisky in the Indian Subcontinent can be taxing, and I am not talking about the steep taxes for our beloved scotch. The ‘Amateur’ tag has been added to encourage members to shed their inhibitions and speak out & ask.
Through ‘Store Reviews’, SMAC will give interested readers a glance at some of the best spots for acquiring their favorite ‘Uisge Beatha’ in Bangalore and in India. We provide ratings to each of these stores after visiting and evaluating them.
