Amrut Rye

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample. Indian heat and whisky methods, European Rye, Amrut yeast, and a friendly competition between two obsessive Canucks. That’s what’s lead us here. An assortment of international reasons that have lead me here. Amrut Rye seems insane. A company that makes Single Malts in a very distinctive Scottish way. The last thing I expected from them was a dram that was… Continue reading Amrut Rye

I was dropping off a few mystery drams for devoz to add to a shipment for j4ni back in December so my wife and I came by to hang out for a drink or two.

Paul John Indian Whisky (Edited, Brilliance, Classic Select Cask, Peated Select Cask, Single Cask P1-163, 6 2008 Single Cask)

India is fascinating. And has a bit of English history. So it’s not surprising at all that they have a… Continue reading Paul John Indian Whisky (Edited, Brilliance, Classic Select Cask, Peated Select Cask, Single Cask P1-163, 6 2008 Single Cask)
