On occasion of World Whisky Day this Sunday, here’s a list by The Single Malt Amateur Club of the top Indian single malts and why you should try them. If you intend to use any of this information for your stories, please attribute the inputs to Hemanth Rao, Founder of Single Malt Amateur Club.

In addition to this, instead of sharing new entrants here is a list of lesser-known whiskies that are available locally and one should grab a bottle when presented with an opportunity. 

  • Scapa 16
  • Old Putney 10
  • Ardmore Legacy
  • Bushmills 10
  • Glenlivet Nadurra 16

PS: If you have a feeling that the whisky world dates are returning too often, you may not be the only one. International whisky day is different to the World Whisky Day which is marked on the 3rd Saturday of May every year. While the latter is an organization that has been associated with the whisky world, International whisky day was established in 2009 to commemorate the birthday anniversary of a great English writer Michael Jackson. (Not the pop singer) Being one of the most revered & influential authors on the subject, the Whisky Day Festival was organized in the Netherlands in the presence of several whisky writers. I would thoroughly recommend the book “The Whiskies of Scotland” for an overview of the Scottish whisky world.
