Paul John Mithuna Indian Single Malt Whisky by Whisky Monster
We first heard about Paul John Mithuna in September 2020, when it was announced as the World's 3rd Finest Whisky in 2021. Lucky for Paul John, this whisky was the only whisky that wasn't released as of the day. The winner Alberta Premium Cask Strength Rye and Stagg Jr were already well gone and sold out. It took a few months, but we are finally about to see Mithuna on the shelves in a few weeks.
The Little-Known Indian Whiskey That Beat Out the World’s Best
Paul John’s newly-awarded Mithuna whisky is the product of India’s west coast, where Indian and Portuguese cultures intermix for a kaleidoscope of culture and flavours. Now delivering one of the world’s top drops, as voted by Jim Murray, Goa sits aside some of the great American and Scottish whiskies in the hallowed halls of his hugely-influential Whisky Bible.
India’s Paul John stepped up a notch again with a stellar single malt in 2021, Mithuna. I received two sample bottles (50ml) earlier this year, and I need to tell you that I enjoyed them. This is an unpeated, not-chill-filtered single whisky. It is matured in virgin American oak (the way folks following the Scotch model say “new”) and finished in ex-bourbon casks, before bottling at 58% ABV (116 proof)
