Paul John Brilliance Indian Whisky.
Paul John Brilliance Indian Whisky is a Single Malt Whisky from the John Distilleries, India, Goa.
Nose; a complex amalgam of nougat, spotted dog pudding (sans sultanas!) and orange blossom. Honey with the vanilla spinning tangled webs just beneath.
Honey is captured as the bourbon element expands. A delicate gristiness ushers in a freshness to the custard tart.
Taste; the mouth feel exudes star quality with the barley generating all kinds of juicy riches. The light Demerara sugars forming an elegant accompaniment.
A coppery spine is soon carrying the barley in varied forms. While a gorgeous cocoa sub strata heralds in the spices which buzz the taste buds at will.
Finish; beautifully relaxed. A light tingle from the spices pulses contentedly, the vanillas gather in deeper intensity yet the barley and copper stretches to the end;
Balance : yet another astonishing malt from India.
