Paul John Brilliance
Paul John – launched in 2012 in UK then 2013 India. This Goa based distillery wanted to produce Premium Single malts and cater to the growing and changing Indian market.John Distilleries’ Mithuna scored 97 points on Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible, giving it the distinction of the world’s third finest whiskey this year.
Brilliance’s six-row barley is sourced from the foothills of the Himalayas then matured in ex bourbon casks.
Nose: Delicate nose, whiff of sweet fragrances – orange blossom honey, vanilla and sultanas. The aromas of the bourbon influence slowly kicks in with coconut and mild coffee beans. Some milk chocolate too.
Palate: Extremely rich mouth feel, a fabulous balance of sweet and spice flavours. A touch of oak with cocoa and cinnamon. Closes on tropical fruits with banana and mango.
Finish: Smooth and crisp finish, mild spices and powerful vanilla. Tastes like a typical Speyside whisky.
