Indian whiskies

Main article: Indian whisky ..[sp ?]

Indian whisky is an alcoholic beverage that is labelled as "whisky" in
India. Much Indian whisky is distilled from fermented molasses, and as
such would be considered a sort of rum outside of the Indian
subcontinent.[13] 90% of the "whisky" consumed in India is molasses
based, although India has begun to distill whisky from malt and other
grains.[14]

Kasauli Distillery is set in the Himalaya mountains and opened in the
late 1820s. The main whisky brand is a single malt named "Solan No. 1".
This was named after the town nearby called Solan. It was the best
selling Indian whisky till recently, but has declined since the early
1980s because of the stiff competition from the larger distilleries.
Other whiskies this distillery produces are Diplomat Deluxe, Colonel's
Special, Black Knight and Summer Hall.[15]

German whiskies

Main article: German whisky

The distillation of German-made whisky is a relatively recent phenomenon
having only started in the last 30 years. The styles produced resemble
those made in Ireland, Scotland and the United States: single malts,
blends, and bourbon styles. There is no standard spelling of German
whiskies with distilleries using both "whisky" and "whiskey" and one
even using "whessky", a play on the word whisky and Hessen, the state in
which it is produced. There are currently ten distilleries in Germany
producing whisky.[12]

Used to be a bourbon man, but now I prefer Scotch. Never tried these
Indian or German products. Calling something made from molasses
"whisky" strikes me as like calling tofu "cheese."

Yes in celebration of tax day and April 20th and 23rd, I'm gonna drink
scotch whiskey all night long. And a Bogart too.
