Whisky Reviews for Paul John Bold

- Excellent! Maybe the oak was just a tad too active on the palate, but overall a nice range of flavours and a good balance. Recommended.
Touches of peat, along with a whisper menthol and angelica root, followed by peaches, and tinned pineapple. Finally a whiff of smoked paprika powder, cinnamon and cured meat.
Beautiful oiliness, spicy (ginger, cloves, nutmeg) and fairly peaty. But there's a sweet tropical fruitiness here again. Passion fruit comes to mind, as does mango. A fair amount of toasted bread too, as well as a pronounced oakiness.
Sweet peat, a tad dry. Medium in length.
- A stunning dram, by this combination of peat smoke and intense exotic fruit, very pleasant surprise even if the peat is well below what the nose could glimpse.
very pleasant peat mingled with exotic fruits, marked on pineapple, with vanilla and fresh lemon.Uniform smoke evaporation.
intense fruity flavors, the smoke fades unfortunately in relation!
Back spicy, honeyed, vanilla, a little wood and dry smoke on the return.
long enough, but also disparate and disintegrating.
On the same aromas with a fruity and floral side.
- Excellent value for money. Peat smoke not as prominent as in an Islay. But makes it's presence felt combined with fruity flavours.

Great smoky malt. Sweetness - Smoke and spice harmonize very well with each other - 88 points
- Tasted blind - it made it's mark and stood it's ground between a Clynelish 14 and a Kilchoman Machir Bay.
Deserves to be on the list of Scotch lovers;-)
- Very nice whisky, which I presumably would have put blind immediately to Scotland.
Surprisingly Scottish, my first Indian, that's why I expected something different somehow. Strong smoke and sweetness are the strongest flavors at the beginning. The smoke is more medicinal than campfire smoke. Then spice and herbs develop properly. After about 20 minutes, a few red fruits are added. The nose is ever interesting and strong.
The first 2 seconds he was very silky and oily, but then comes with a lot of noise, the smoke and spice to light. The right machine forwards: pepper, heavy smoke (which comes here even stronger than in the nose), some tobacco and leather notes, the fruits come again at the end. The alcohol content is just right for me.
A little orange, caramel, dark honey and growing oak. For a long time I would say. The smoke does not fade and sets a nice counterpoint to the more dominant oak. Now also shows dark chocolate.
