Colour: Amber Gold
Nose: After the slightest whiff of smoke, a dizzying array of Manuka honey, prickly spice and bourboneque red liquorice takes over.
Taste: The grassy flavours of barley show up first, but gently make way for subtle peat notes. They slowly dissolve and pave the way for a rush of mint and mocha.
Finish: The finish is long and drawn out. You can sense a hint of spice and chocolate mint as it ends on gentle peat notes.
Pairing: The hints of peat and chocolate mint in this Single Malt are perfect with a mildly spiced lamb stew, or even dark chocolate.
History of Paul John
Established in 1992, John Distilleries grew to be a leading spirit company within less than a decade, The Great Indian Single Malts has been crowned with innumerable global awards over the years.
Goa was specially chosen as the home of their single malts, not just for its unique micro-climate and water source (100% from Goa) but also because the destination holds a special place in Mr Paul’s heart. Copper pot-stills made in India, were specially designed with long necks to create fruitier spirits. Double-distillation in these pot-stills prolong intimate contact with the copper and this renders a distinct, rich and full-bodied flavour to the new-make spirit. Paul John’s Distillery has two warehouses each with a different temperature, the tropical climates increases the rate of maturation in the Bourbon Barrels from the US. A whisky will develop a different composition of flavours at different temperatures, so Indian single malt whisky will be its own unique configuration of flavours.
