Apu Invades Willie's Turf

A Indian whisky, aged only 4 years, is coming to Scotland to take on the giants of the industry, and no one can tell the difference.

Ken Storrie, owner of the Pot Still bar in Hope Street, Glasgow, has been blind tasting Amrut with his whisky-drinking regulars. “The response is remarkable,” he says. “They all automatically think it’s a Speyside. I think it’s very close to a 10-year old Ben Nevis: similar in flavour, a pleasant whisky, sweet and with a nice nose.”

Postscript: The Hindustan Times seems a bit confused over exactly what is competing with what - Indian whisky set to compete with Scottish bubbly.
