Many experiments are underway at The Paul John distillery at a time. Taking inspiration from the Mars Orbiter Mission or Mangalyaan, which made us the first Asian country to reach the Martian orbit, the makers have paid their homage with a limited-edition single malt with the same name.
Its intense and dramatic aromas of peat are tinged with orange peel, butterscotch and honey. On the palate there are notes of nuts, star anise, dark fruits, raisins and mocha. The finish is exquisite and intriguingly long. Only a dozen-odd bottles of this expression were made available in India. Rs38,000 (Goa)
Mithuna is Paul John’s second release in its now much sought-after Zodiac series – Kanya was the first release of the series. At an ABV of 58%, Mithuna by Paul John is an unpeated whisky matured in American virgin oak casks. Named after the Indian counterpart of the 3rd Zodiac sign Gemini, it has nuanced nose of vanilla, orange zest, nougat and oak. On the palate, it gets denser with coffee, dates, cinnamon, star anise and dark cocoa tones. This sweet journey lingers in the aftertaste. Mithuna is intense and complex. Rs20,000 (Goa) and Rs22,000 (Mumbai)
This whisky has no seven-year itch. After maturing in American oak casks for seven years, this unpeated expression is finished with 50% ABV and earns a honeyed fruitiness with a dash of spice. Kanya is Virgo, the sixth zodiac sign of the universe. Feminine and sensuous, this pour has a creamy, butterscotch sweetness. Ending with a finish of toasted sweet oak and white pepper. A dry pour, this is one of India’s most subtle whiskies. Rs18,000 (Goa)
