Whisky Reviews for Paul John Nirvana
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 77.44 points
- Manure, nutmeg, cardamom, honey, bees, vanilla, peach, apricot and cardboard. And with a few drops of water a little pepper, walnuts, oak, green apple and lemon. After 30 minutes in the glass a smell of malted barley and bowl of beer.
- I appreciated the nose, sweet and complex, a lot of different flavors. A good price/quality ratio.
Just after the opening, the alcohol was too present, but after a couple of minutes, this disappears and all the sweet notes appears. Fruit flowers, vanilla, honey and wheat biscuits.
Less pleasant than nose, an hint of white pepper mixed with malt and currant
The sweetness disappear fast, almonds and wood at the end
- Strange kind of fruity nose, some hard to define sweetness, but also some kind of rubber or plastic-like influences.
In the body and finish it didn't get any better.
Not that is really bad whisky, but somehow this one doesn't work for me. It's pretty full for a 40% Abv, it has pretty much tastes, but I simply don't like those tastes very much.
I like the Brilliance much better.
