  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    indian peated from a selection of casks
    • Nose
      glue, spices up, a little curry ?, in any case the peat is there without being cloying
      fruity on candied fruit
    • Taste
      long aromas in the mouth and back, on the crushed and cooked almond and then on the sherry-hazelnut, on the well soaked wood, on the cooked vanilla, on cherry cooked with a little water
      crushed kernel return
    • Finish
      long finish, fruity but quite undifferentiated there, also woody and peaty ahead

    After reading my Tasting Notes myself, I feel like I've been drinking some kind of Indian Laphroaig and when I think about it that's actually quite good: the Paul John Peated combines peat and smoke with the area's signature peculiarities, for what the Laphroaig carries in Scottish island life, the Paul John Peated brings to Indian folklore. I am a coastal person and think this is better than sandalwood in my whisky, but if you like something, you will be very happy with this malt. For me personally: not bad, but aims very close to my taste.
    • Nose
      The whisky rubs directly into your nose an alcohol-soaked peat bale, through which one must first crawl to discover other notes. You either do that bravely immediately or leave it for ten / fifteen minutes before you get raided for a second impression. For me then show tire abrasion, licorice, oak and an indefinable, milky sweetness, which harmonizes well with the oak.
    • Taste
      The alcohol-soaked peat bales migrate from the nose directly to the tongue without detours and settle there first heavy, sharp and powerful. From there it gives off a distinct taste of vanilla, toffee and especially sandalwood, which in retrospect explains the sweetness in the nose, which I could not assign. Despite the alcoholic sharpness, I feel in the mouth a cool touch, reminiscent of Eucalyptusbonbons.
    • Finish
      Very long, unexpectedly sweet and slightly milky, the whisky sticks to the palate. Even the cool touch holds up surprisingly well, while the oak disappears quickly.

    Enthusiasm 4/5 Whisky n ° 1637
    • Nose
      Powerful, fragrant, deep and fruity peat. Incense, rubber (strange combination but not unpleasant here) Delicately (Dehli-catement? ^^) peppered, sweet malt. With a little water, it is dry, on cereals.
    • Taste
      The mouth is hyper coherent with the nose. Pretty juicy texture, it has relief. Beautiful balanced between sweet and spices. With a little water, the latter tingle. It is less sweet, turning to a more austere profile.
    • Finish
      Finale saline, very spicy, combining softness and power, all is very persistent.

    (Blind PWC of 21/10/17) I was eager to enjoy this PJ Peated but I'm disappointed, not excited about this profile and the power alcoholic.
    • Nose
      Mineral peat (iron), ashy with some aniseed notes.
    • Taste
      Lively attack, too much for me. A peat always mineral and bitter.
    • Finish
      In the continuity of the mouth, mineral peat and bitterness.
