Did you just step out of a party in which you met some fine gents who talked endlessly about a 30 year old scotch? Or did you taste the best ‘Poison’ last evening? Forget the whisky you can’t even get the pronunciation right? What does peat taste like for you to recognize it in whisky? Fruit in whisky? Hell what is “Single Malt”? Blended whisky not good enough? Or are you just enamoured by the yarn that has been woven around the world of whiskies? I would have answered in the affirmative to all of the above questions a few years back.
But over the last years my passion became an obsession and the quest to find some answers and raise many more questions has egged me on to create this club.
SMAC was created with the intention of sharing with you my learning on the subject of Single Malt whisky. Having a passion for Single Malt whisky in the Sub continent can be taxing, and I am not talking about the steep taxes for our beloved scotch.

Make way for India's first Limited Edition and Club Exclusive Whisky.
SMAC India is pleased to announce the launch of the ‘Amrut Amaze’ - an exclusive limited edition Single Malt Whisky released by AMRUT, the pioneers of Single Malt whisky in India exclusively for members of the Club. This limited edition bottling is a trilogy that has been created to celebrate the club and its members.
The idea of this collectible comes from the founder of SMAC, Hemanth Rao, who planned to offer a truly niche whisky to the members of his popular club. This year’s release is the first of a trilogy, limited to 120 bottles. A‘MAZE’ a kangaroo word and a noun, has been inspired by the rich historical architecture of India. The Maze on the label is a rendition of a map, engraved on an undisclosed historic monument in India; the perfect crypt and portrayal of this whisky. With each release comes a clue to decipher the location & an opportunity to appreciate the maze in its original creation.
