on the nose you get fresh citrus notes, spices like pepper, hints of maple syrup and finally ash. On the palate the peatiness tastes a bit like a blend of laphroaig and bowmore
In fact, Mr Paul P. John – we salute you. I reckon for this price you should get yourself a bottle. It’s good fun. Its youth shows, but it comes out fighting. This is a young Sachin Tendulkar scrapping away on a dusty wicket.
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!
Matured in bourbon casks and distilled using six-row barley, the nose is sweet and surprisingly spicy, with ginger, pepper, and cinnamon aromas. The palate delivers abundant smoke, meatiness, and leather, while the spice turns sweet, bringing about a stellar balance. Colourful, vibrant, and balanced, this Paul John single malt is a must for lovers of peat.
The yumminess from the nose translates onto the palate. It is a beautiful, full bodied dram. Even at the 55.2% ABV, you don’t taste any alcohol and I could easily finish the glass without water.
As with many Indian whiskeys, you do not notice Paul John Bold's supposed youth. I also liked the smoke and its intensity very much and meet my current taste quite well. John Distilleries definitely show with the Paul John Bold why they are one of the Indian distilleries who rightfully claim their place in the whiskey world.
There are some interesting distilleries making whisky there that are gaining recognition, such as Paul John in the Indian state of Goa. The distillery produces a range of whisky that includes a smoke bomb called Peated Select Cask
It is amazing to see how well the sherry red fruits has been built into the malt. It gives an extra dimension, smooths the edges of the spirit with an elegant touch. The spice brings intensity but the heat is nicely tamed. Nice flavours, composed with great complexity. Remarkable dram!
Intriguing profile – something I never had before. Unconventional combination of herbal, cream, nuts and peat worked like a charm here and it is immensely enjoyable!
A whisky from India, Paul John is one of my favorite whisky distilleries outside of Scotland. This cask strength whisky is packed full of flavors. Rich tropical fruits, a soft dose of vanilla from bourbon cask maturation.....
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.
The moment I put the glass to my nose I was immediately reminded me of scotch, and the first sip reminded me of Japanese whisky. After my second sip, I realized that Edited Single Malt has its own style and that style is impressive and of India.
Paul John Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish amazing whisky! You can spend hours and hours with all the layers of goodness both on the nose and on the palate.
To round off a great performance, the Paul John Bold gives a lengthy encore full of peatiness, spiciness and sweetness.
When it comes to whiskey, major spirit categories are often separated into American (including bourbon), Canadian, Irish, Scotch, and then simply “World” whiskies
A surprisingly mature whisky with a good price / quality ratio. It is the first whisky of Paul John I've tasted and I must say I am pleasantly surprised
Warth, brown sugar, soda, peated, iodine. Warmed caramel. Sweet brown sugar. Some acidity in the back. Beautiful nose, not too complex, but perfect. Dark chocolate
Masters of hot-tempered climate whisky work at an accelerated pace. A whisky that is not ready one day might rapidly evolve in only a few days due to the hot climate.
When a distillery can find honey at the very end of its flavour range and profile, you know they have cracked it. Superb!
Paul John Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish, evidence of the grape arrives early: clean and well structured. As spices form around it,
