Bold is a journey that leads you down the unexplored, unchartered terrains of Goa. It offers you a slice of its best-kept secrets, unravelling the mysteries, bit by little bit. This expression of ours invites you to leave the trail, tread the path less taken and plunge headlong into the delicious depths of Goa.
After the slightest whiff of smoke, a dizzying array of Manuka honey, prickly spice and bourboneque red liquorice takes over.
This melt-in-the-mouth malt has the most profound flavours crashing in like waves. At first, the delivery feels sublimely silky and studded with oak-like honey. And just when you think you’ve savoured it all, you are surprised by a hefty second wave of spice. This is followed by a cloudy, smoky feel that coats the roof of the mouth and leaves a tidal wave of dry molasses, peaty soot and a degree of copper in its wake.
Bold has a light finish with a tinge of copper slowly making its presence known. You can also sense a gorgeous smoked mocha shaped by delicate and intricate spices.

TASTING NOTES BY PAUL P JOHN AND MICHAEL D'SOUZA
Submerge yourself into the erratic tropical climate of Goa, the land which houses the adorers of whisky. Witness the first distillery in India which administers the whole whisky making process under one roof. Entice yourself through the malt whisky making process, whisky tastings and a tete-a-tete with Michael D’Souza, the master distiller himself. Also take home Paul John souvenirs like Glencarin Glass and other Paul John Merchandises.
Yellow fruits on the one side, different kinds of peat smoke on the other. To round off a great performance, the Paul John Bold gives a lengthy encore full of peatiness, spiciness and sweetness..
Barley Mania, Gеrmаny.
A gorgeous smoked mocha is given a third dimension by the busy, delicate and intricate spices; meanwhile the molasses have time to linger and morph into mocha; one of the most weighty and chewable Indian whiskies of all time.
