Whisky Reviews for Paul John Single Cask

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.33 points

  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    A little bit too much active oak in this one. Would be interesting to try it next to a similarly aged refill cask version.

    Thanks to member GIORGOS for the sample!
    • Nose
      Strong raw peanuts, something I've also found in high ABV casks of Amrut. Oak spices and some candy touches. Reminds me of high strength bourbons, but without the corn, or perfume notes from new oak. Feels huge for sure, but also simple and strongly oak-based. Some touches of spicy flour with water.
    • Taste
      Sharp and bourbon-like. The bourboniest malt for sure. Flour, peanuts, pepper, and oak. This wood is starting to get to me. How about with water? Feels very American, in that the oak is all over the place. Is this a feature of the maturation climate, this over-extractive profile? If so, perhaps Indian malts are not my cup of uisge.
    • Finish
      Oak, and syrup. Water makes it slightly candied.
