Whisky Reviews for Paul John Kanya

    Oriental

    The newest expression from the Indian John Distilleries is the Paul John Kanya, a 7 year old malt of which only 1500 bottles were released. Kanya is the Indian version of Virgo from the Zodiac. It is said that Indians born under Kanya are patient, precise and observing. Jim Murray awarded this malt no less than 96 points… but who cares about Jim? Let’s taste.

    The nose is oriental and floral. I get some parma violets, joined by some game. Quite a bit of cocoa kicks in and something that reminds me of orange liqueur. White wine surfaces, which is somewhat unexpected. After a few moments of air it turns very fruity with even some tropical note. Lovely and very aromatic.

    The body is fine and the arrival soft and accessible. Immediately sweet notes appear as if from sugared orange peel, toffee and dark honey. I get some latte with foam on top and a nice spiciness. Chocolate with caramel filling appears. Barley sugar. It all works like a charm to offer a lovely, creamy malt on the palate.

    The finish is medium long, clearn, a touch drying, but mostly very sweet.

    Well, it comes as no surprise that this was awarded the title ‘Best Asian Single Malt’. But it will set you back almost 200 EUR – ouch!

    N- Lifted gamey and furry notes earmarked this probably a worthy LE to look up for in early next year. Well lays with dark cocoa, perfum-y garden floral and sour grapes.

    P- Plenty of toffee and milky cafe latte on the build up with solid spicy honey notes, good strength, gentle coats of malt with right touch of sweetness for balanced mouthfeel.

    F- Medium long, wee bold on spiky oak shadowing the rest. Fine, modern and tasty nonetheless.
