On his table Ashok offered up The Amrut 46% , The Amrut Peated 46% , The Amrut Caskstrength , The Amrut Peated Caskstrength and the Amrut Fusion . On my visits to the table all the Amruts were going down a storm , lots of new and very surprised converts , As usual the Fusion seem to be the one really going down well , literally in the bottle !

As well as Amrut there were other exhibitors…… including Moet Hennessy , Springbank , Morrison Bowmore , Diageo , St Georges , Arran , Glenfarclas and one of my favourites Berry Bros and Rudd . Rob came up trumps with another wonderful selection from Berrys . Mel , my wife , accompanied me this year and her particular favourites were the Farclas 40yo closely followed by the Berrys Blue Hanger 5th Edition .  As well as the Tables Eddie had arranged 4 masterclasses and then at the end entertained us with his Whisky Lounge Blues Band .
