Paul John Edited Indian Whisky.
Paul John Edited Indian Whisky is a Peated Single Malt Whisky from the John Distilleries.
Nose: chocolate mint evolves from the delicate peats which sit beautifully with the lesser oaky theme; a comfortable, yet always complex, nose with the smoke soft and relaxed and refusing to bully the juicier barley;
Taste: grassy barley shows first, then slowly gives way as those most gentle peat notes dissolve onto the palate and begins to build momentum and intensity.
Again there is a chocolate mint/mocha theme, as well as a sublime mollassed note which injects all the sweetness required;
Finish: long, helped by to-die-for oils, some hints of spice and now some tannins, plus the vanilla. But all is beautifully weighted, patient and poised; Oh, and did I mention the chocolate mint…?
Balance : a new Indian classic: a sublime malt from the subcontinent. To be more precise: a world classic!
Think of Ardmore at its most alluring: one of Scotland’s finest and most complex single malts, yet somehow possessing a saltiness and depth more befitting Islay.
Then stir in a small degree of Ulmo honey and bourbon-style hickory and liquorice. Plus subtle chocolate mint. And there you have it…the smoke drifting around stirring up spicy tales of the east.
A world class whisky to be talked about with reverence without doubt.
