Luxebook May 2023

MAY 2023 THE GIST Like every year, we are back with our special issue on all things whisky. While whisky remains the most favoured drink in India, the audience is ripe for homegrown brands to take space alongwith traditional imported scotches and malts. For our special issue, we have a whisky tasting wheel and flavour profile chart that displays what a well-rounded and diverse drink it is. Intel on the latest private whisky clubs in the country is here to get you to connect with like-minded people who enjoy the tipple and savour it as much as you. Alongwith, a special collection of decanters for those indulgent evenings at home. Our deep dive into the role of the cask in whisky-making is an attempt to understand its part in generating depth of flavour, a quest part of every whisky makers’s dream. Besides, if you have a taste for the finest, then behold the best whiskies available in auctions, and the most awarded whiskies of this year. Happy reading, and cheers!
