Whisky Reviews for Paul John Brilliance

21 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.44 points

  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    He is delicious, surprisingly good, mature enough, the cocoa-fruit combo pleases, tasty ... and with 40 € still quite cheap, even more for an exotic. This is a potential permanent candidate for the alien shelf.
    • Nose
      very pleasant, gentle sweetness (cocoa powder, nougat), with tropical-fruity freshness (physalis, blood orange, mango)
    • Taste
      Cocoa / milk chocolate, cinnamon, a little nutmeg - sweet, creamy and tasty ... there is still a green-tart fruity note on the back of the tongue
    • Finish
      medium long, some white pepper, milk chocolate ... and here again something exotic-tart-fruity

    I find this an nice exotic twist on a scotch. For a standard entree bottling with a affordable price, this has quite a lot to offer. And I noticed that it improves considerably when the bottle is opened for some time. Add to that the lovely design, and you have good whisky that is fun to explore.

      This feels spring-like, fruity and fresh, while also earthy. I find nutty notes of brazil nuts, walnuts and pistache. Add to that koriander, and sweet exotic fruits such as lychee, mango and bananas. Top that off with spiced pears and apples.

      Again this is celebrating its roots with an exotic spiciness and tropical fruits. In particular curry poweder and cinnamon come forward. The fruits mainly consist of mango and banana. I also notice a slight sulphur note, but that is perfectly kept in balance. More spices with nutmeg, koriander, marsala.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The finish is fruity and earthy, with a wood dust and drying fruity aftertaste.

  6. Noface83 scored this whisky 79 points Specialist

    Nose: young malty spirit, juicy blood orange with a sprinkling of grapefruit, already neat wood with aromas of sawdust and drinking chocolate spiced with spicy cinnamon. As expected from an Indian malt, which has ripened briefly and intensely in the climate, the wood dominates and the basic character is still very immature.
    Taste: sparkling onset, is getting creamier, milk chocolate with cinnamon and pepper, pistachio, very dry and woody almost no fruit. Also on the finish wood and bitter notes dominate, cocoa powder and at the back comes out again some fruit (multivitamin juice). The finish is medium long and quite pleasant / tasty. Here is more maturity and age taught as he should have from the paper but that comes simply by the strong wood note.
    My first Paul John and I have to say that is quite successful, although of course without much depth and you have to be on wood flavors. But you should keep an eye on the distillery. There are certainly some great things from India coming towards us.

  8. spigray scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    a totally underrated whisky in my opinion. I really like it a lot.
    88/100
    • Nose
      fruity-nutty barley aroma, seems to be very young but but it is a very pleasant nose with peaches and mangos, oolong tea and hints of tinned pineapple. reminds me very much of several bere barley expressions I have tasted up to now. after a few minutes in the glass a floral component joins in. also some shellac. really not bad in my opinion.
    • Taste
      a little sharp without water but a punchy attack full of fruit.
      a drop of water helps to soften it a little. the same peaches, it still reminds me of arran bere barley. macadamia nuts, honey.
    • Finish
      rather long, medium sweet, still fruity

  9. holborndrinker scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Initially surprising soft, but soon followed by a real punch, with a lingering aftertaste.  A real eye opener.

    Lovely creamy, fudgey-sweet nose. Some white pepper spice and yeasty toast.

    Initial taste is really creamy again, then quickly into a slightly bitter development. Restrained white pepper spice, before mellowing out into a nice cereal note.

    Thoroughly enjoyable.
