You cant really make out the difference between Golfer’s Shot or other brands available in premium liquor segment in India, they all taste the same with minute differences.

Golfer’s Shot does gives you s sense of aroma of oak cask but does not really makes its presence felt. Its smooth on palate and that’s what real is differentiator between premium segment and regular whisky available in Indian market, produced in India.

Packaging looks fine and goes with with Golf concept but little more should have been done on the bottle, bottle cap is really of poor quality.

    1. I bought two halves of golfet shot whisky from Chandani Chowk on 25th May at about 8 pm. On consuming this, the next day I developed urine problem while my brother got his stomach upset with loose motions. Further, its taste is also not so wonderful as it is being claimed.

  1. I had Golfers shot a couple of weeks ago. After that I’m buying only this. Nothing else. It’s easy on the stomach, no hangover, excellent taste and mood.

  2. I am drinking golfers shot, and i totally disagree with all the reumors like stomach problem hangover taste & problem of urine…..
    It is a fine whisky……
    The thing that we should keep in mind with every brand of liquor is 3D
    D- dilution
    D- duration
    D- diet…..
