CLASSIC SELECT CASK INDIAN SINGLE MALT WHISKY

#PaulJohnClassicSelectCask

ABV 55.2%

Explore tropical Goa in every sip of the Classic Select Cask. The lush freshness of this Single Malt envelops you from the very beginning. To give you this experience, we've matured it in selectively chosen cask profiles and bottled it without chill filtration, at cask strength. Relish the tropical rush, Goan style.

Nose:

Fruity, malty aromas are intertwined with honey. A hint of bourbon teases your senses.

Palate:

With the very first sip, flavours of malted barley greet you. A heady mix of bourbon and manuka honey-liquorice makes for an attractive spine. And while you relish this experience, the unexpected flavour of toasted honeycomb takes you by surprise.

Finish:

This Single Malt has an absolutely elegant finish, with juicy Demerara tones ensuring a soft, friendly finish.

Colour:

Rich Amber.

Pairing:

The spices from the oak and the mellowness of this elegant Indian classic are a perfect match for smoked salmon, ham or a sinful chocolate soufflé.

TASTING NOTES BY PAUL P JOHN AND MICHAEL D'SOUZA

IMPRESSION

An essay in complexity: softly sizzling lightly salted bacon mingles easily with tannins. The barley, offering the vaguest hint of grist, is almost in pastel, so delicate is it, with the deftest touch of citrus and moist syrup cake..

Jim Murray, Whisky Bible.

The Classic Select Cask is a pure adrenaline rush of taste with a wonderful transition of flavours..

Paul John is a great “Speyside style” tasting Scotch

Yes Paul John is a great “Speyside style” tasting Scotch and yes it's from India? I picked this up at a tasting last summer in Birmingham, UK. Only one issue ... if only there was better distribution in the US. #cheers #pauljohn #pauljohnwhisky #scotch #singlemalt #whiskey #scotchwhisky #whiskeyporn #whisky #maltwhisky #scotchneat #speyside

Display a unique character

Paul John Single Malts are classic yet display a unique (Indian) character. Typically spicy with wonderful aromas of toffee, exotic spices, burnt orange and biscuit, they make for a great dram!

This is a whisky that glistens and shimmers in both looks and in taste

I don't know what my preconceptions were, but at a higher ABV, I think I expected this to be difficult to drink and fiery. Instead it is almost criminally easy to drink. There is a creamy, mellow quality to it that remind me of the better Irish pot stills that I have had the pleasure to drink. However there is a “different” quality to it, which comes from the silky sweetness. This is a whisky that glistens and shimmers in both looks and in taste.

DIVINE Paul John Classic Select Cask

The yumminess from the nose translates onto the palate. It is a beautiful, full bodied dram. Even at the 55.2% ABV, you don't taste any alcohol and I could easily finish the glass without water.

Indian whisky is on the rise, Just so charming and irresistible

The Classic Select Cask is a pure adrenaline rush of taste

Masters of hot-tempered climate whisky work at an accelerated pace. A whisky that is not ready one day might rapidly evolve in only a few days due to the hot climate.
