spicier nose compared to the Paul John Bold, fuller flavored but lacks the intense metallic and minerally notes of the Bold. fruitier, deeper and darker and still very good

Nose

very peaty, very laphroaigish, bandages and ointments, iodine,
menthol, quite some eucalyptus. theres a wee fruitiness behind all that but I cannot really pin it down. if you wait long enough you may find some soot and ashes.

Taste

medium sweet arrival with lots of smoke and malt candy. a wonderful balance between smoke, fruit and malt. still this beautiful eucalyptus. water not needed

Finish

relatively long, warm and satisfying

Comments

brilliant stuff, gonna get me a bottle

Comments

Ein schöner, runder Whisky mit guter Balance zwischen Rauch und Süße. Der lange sirupartige Abgang bleibt in Erinnerung. 

Das war mein erster Whisky aus Indien den ich probieren durfte, hat aber die Neugierde geweckt - 17.12.2016

N- Blows of sweet peat with sharp balsamic, alluring wet fur. Soft and elegant on nose despite high strength. Vanilla and oak at spine.

P- Buddha fruits sweet and touch of bitter, cool mint underlay, standing tall and firm.

F- Refreshing, whiff of woody bitter and intense thick honey, not so pronounce on peat compare to Bold, balance and delicious dram.

Nose

Citrus zest, light floral peat, and floral notes

peated soft white fruits and lemon cream
Taste

soft white fruits, cereal grains, and floral peat

with water: earthy savory-herbs 
vanilla, creme brulee and smoked cream
Finish

floral peat with orange blossom water

with water: mixed baking spices at the very end
Comments

Water definitely brings out the nuanced complexities of this well made whisky. According to the brand ambassador, it's about 7 years old and matured in exclusively bourbon casks.

Nose

Neben einer deutlichen, erdigen Torfnote machen fruchtige Noten und viele Gewürze die Nase aus. Einiges an Orangenschalen, aber auch tropische Früchte und der Einbildung sei gedankt, indische Gewürze. Die Nase ist sehr lecker.

Taste

Viel Torf, sehr kräftig, Menthol und der Alkohol zeigt sich ein wenig. Mit Wasser dann schön fruchtig und leicht pfeffrig, und natürlich immer begleitet von dem kräftigen Torfrauch.

Finish

Leicht salzig, etwas pfeffer, Gewürze, vermutlich von der Eiche, Orangenschalen und natürlich eine deutliche Portion Torfrauch.

Comments

Ich bin ein großer Fan der getorften indischen Whsky, da diese die tollen würzigen Fruchtnoten mit dem Torfrauch verbinden. Ich finde, das passt sehr gut. Dieser hier reiht sich nahtlos ein. Nebenbei gefährlich süffig.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Walnut, barley sugar sweets and classic earthy peat notes. A touch of salt.

Palate: More BBQ smoke, more sugar, more slightly damp earthy notes. Hints of tropical fruit and spice.

Finish: Bitter orange peels on the finish.

Overall: Catches a good balance of "sweet" and "peat" loved by many.

Nose

Apart from honey and a touch of fruit, with citrus in the lead (say mandarin and lime), I get loads of peat in the share of earth, vegetal hints and plasticine. Quite floral too. Heather? Dandelions? Hints of cocoa. The nose is quite pleasant.

Taste

Despite the higher ABV it arrives rather softly. The peat speaks first, with a salty edge, followed by wonderful fruity notes from tropical fruits, both fresh and candied. This is good. The honey makes it somewhat creamy. The peat makes it powerfully smoky.

Finish

The finish may be somewhat short, but does remain nicely smoky with a lime-y finish.

Comments

The best Paul John so far, without any doubt. Around 80 EUR.
