My local liquor store is stocking Antiquity Whiskey, imported from India. Does anybody have any experience with the brand?

According to google its a Scotch whiskey.  It says its the best know and most popular of the Indian whiskeys.

I know that when I was in India, I dared not sample any "home brew" ... Even their top shelf stuff was bottled in thick bottles that looked like something out of the old west -- thick, green (as if they had to be thick to keep the contents from eating through the bottle itself) ... scary bottles.

 Sounds like it was Aged in the Clipper-Ship "Cutty Sark" on it's way from India to your local package Store!

I bought a bottle, out of curiosity,and will report the results in a few days. The glass is clear, not green, and the color is similar to that of Johnny Walker.

They use fresh water from the Ganges river.  That way you have a natural brow color-no dyes or food coloring needed.

I tried it last night, on the rocks. Although bottled and labeled to suggest scotch, it definitly does not remind me of it. It is distilled from sugar cane molasses and , while not tasting like rum, there are some sugary aspects.  Didn't care for the aftertaste. Will try it mixed tonight. Probably will not buy it again, as it is too expensive for that sort of use.

An experiment I will not repeat, once I've tried it mixed.
