  3. mydramofwhiskey scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Easy drinking whisky - 4 year old whisky that punches above its weight. Nose has strong orange. Palate has soft vanilla creamy and buttery mouthfeel. Not much complexity - quite same after 3 sips. Oak in the finish.

  4. thijs100 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Perfectly decent throughout.
    • Nose
      Malty (drifting in the direction of malt wine genever) and sweet with touches of oak shavings and plenty of cornflakes, followed by caramel and some soft forest fruits. Finally a whiff of cardboard.
    • Taste
      Rather a creamy mouthfeel at such a low abv. Soft oak spices, somewhat tannic and slightly bitter, but the subtle sweetness bring balance. Syrupy caramel, a touch of honey and rye.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices, bitter oranges. Medium in length.

  5. koraykaan scored this whisky 83 points Member Junior

    I wrote a whole article on this on my website but the main point is, this is a light and delicate 'single malt' whisky that is equivalent to 10-year-old Scotch line for $30.

    • Nose
      That beeswax! Great notes of tropical fruits, caramel with malty and sourdough like yeasty character.
    • Taste
      Classic creamy Paul John texture. Bourbon like honey sweetness with baking spices, barley notes. Incredibly juicy for a 40%abv whisky
    • Finish
      Surprisingly longer than expected. A medium to long finish with velvety texture. Smooth, round with orange zest, vanilla and mango.

    Not really my taste, I prefer Sherry and Peated, but surprisingly good. I didn't know Indian whisky and I wasn't expecting something so sweet and tasty. Fruity, cereal, and salted toffey in the end.

  9. MacBurner scored this whisky 76 points Newbie

    Mild, sweet, a little boring. A tasty summer whisky.

  10. SirMattsmore scored this whisky 78 points Newbie

    Very complex tastes like oak and wood but also fruits and even dirty things like rubber , it was a nice experience but wouldn’t buy it again.
