Kanya, the latest expression of the Paul John Single Malts, has been awarded the prestigious Asian Whisky of the Year in the 2018 edition of Jim Murray's Whisky Bible with a score of 96 out of 100. This unpeated and limited edition expression of the Paul John Single Malts will be released in January 2018.
Jim Murray earned his global whisky guru status through sheer dedication by personally tasting, analyzing and rating a 1000 whiskies per year and his Whisky Bible is a renowned and leading whisky guide for most whisky connoisseurs across the world.
Key notes from Jim Murray's review about Kanya, “Even towards the finale there is still Manuka honey to be found …when a distillery can find honey at the very end of its flavour range and profile, you know they have cracked it. Superb!”
About Kanya by Paul John
Ruled by Mercury and symbolised by the virgin, Kanya is the dignified Indian counterpart of the highly appealing Virgo, the sixth zodiac sign of the universe. With its earthy, feminine sensuousness, this deep amber expression personifies the intrinsic characteristics of the Kanya.
An exotic unpeated expression from the sunny shores of Goa, Kanya has been matured for 7 years in American white oak casks, and its aromas of citrusy spice and tropical fruit lure you to savour its creamy, butterscotch sweetness. The satisfying finish of toasted oak with warm wafts of honey and spice has just the slightest hint of salt, making it ever more memorable.
With rare complexities and an exquisitely balanced dryness, the Kanya is perhaps one of the softest Indian whiskies ever to be bottled.
