While on the subject I hear Heineken is relaunching with UB soon. Two of my favourites from one brewer - long live Vijay Mallya!

Yup Nitin, nowhere as smooth as Black label.
But it has a different charm, which only genuine whisky drinkers will appreciate.

Sam, I have no clue how you got the 'Tiger' for cheap. In Bangalore, I found Rs.65 for a 330 ml can (which is almost double of a KF strong 330 ml can). I will recheck again if the shop guy gave me wrong information on the pricing. Probably he showed me the imported can. Really wanted to try it !

Yup, but Bourbon (and other American 'whiskey's) should be classified separately. They are purely grain spirits and not a blend of grain and malt like Scotch & Irish.

But I guess that is for another thread and can evoke as many emotions as a Jap v/s Euro car debate.

Interestingly, Bourbon was first brewed by the Irish settlers in America. Heard this saying somewhere, it goes something like - 'Gin smells like perfume, Scotch tastes like medicine, Bourbon was brewed for the Gods'.

For sure it is 40 bucks for a pint - 330ml and 70 bucks for a bottle - 650ml.

Hmm, thats good pricing. It would be robbery if they charged 70 for a pint. Its brewed right here in India. But it does taste just as awesome as the ones abroad. Btw, it has hit store shelves? Didnt know that.

Bangalore rates for Booze have been increased after the Karnataka state budget, that may be the reason for this price difference.

Yes yes, it's everywhere. And I agree, it tastes amazing.

The correct Singapore style to drink it is in a large beer mug full of ice!
