Unlike most I feel this Single Malt is priced at the lower end of the premium it deserves. At $250 this is a good $100 too cheap for the quality it offers.
More than half the battle is won on the nose and Mithuna rides the olfactory senses like Alexander, The Great. With its enticingly floral, fruity and oaky spiciness it captures all the bases on the very first whiff. Subsequent sniffing only makes you wholly submit yourself to this marauding warrior.
Tropical fruit flavors dominated by vanilla, coconut, sultanas and cardamom shields Mithuna's rather light body, competently. But all that armory ain't enough to expose its rather wobbly, feeble anatomy. For a 116 proof whisky this feels less robust on the palate and the dialed down viscosity is obviously felt as you hold it in your mouth for an additional second or two.
That said I am merely nit-picking because, I have hard time finding flaws barring it's slightly muted mouthfeel (muted in comparison to Mars Orbiter).
Quintessential Paul John. Lingering, long finish that lends rich dry fruit laced with cinnamon, smoked over honey maple wood feel. if nose was the clarion call than the finish can be described as a perfect crescendo.
