Best Asian Whisky 2018 - Kanya by Paul John

When a distillery can find honey at the very end of its flavour range and profile, you know they have cracked it. Superb!

Sweetness that just entices you!

There is whisky and then there is WHISKY! This is of course the latter and screams quality from the minute you pour until long after you finish the dram.

Beautiful balanced and filled with warming notes. Love it!

A beautiful mix of black pepper, cream cheese, white pepper, cumin, cinnamon, ginger, red apples and fried banana in a sweet batter and a good dose of powdered sugar on top… The finish is medium to long in length with creamy notes, warm oranges, chocolate and fudge pieces. A complex dram and one that is beautiful balanced and filled with warming notes. Love it!

Paul John KANYA Indian Single Malt Whisky

In 2017, Paul John launched their zodiac series of limited release whiskies named and blended to match the characteristic features of the Indian zodiac. The first in this series was the virgin Kanya (Virgo) and meant to be an “earthy, feminine [and] sensuousness” single malt. D’Souza used barrels that were a minimum of seven years old and bottled non-chill filtered it at 50% ABV. In 2018, Kanya was named the Best Asian Whisky in Jim Murry’s Whisky Bible.
