NIRVANA INDIAN SINGLE MALT WHISKY

#PaulJohnNirvana

ABV 40%

A captivating expression from the Goan shores of India, the Nirvana arouses the senses with a soft whiff of bourbon, fruitcake and an enticing caramel pudding. The honeycomb sweetness gently touches the palate with a mild salt-tinged barley while the succulent vanilla heralds the honeyed finish of this rich copper whisky, assuring sublime experiences beyond the worldly realm.

Nose:

An attractive honeycombed bourbon with luscious fruitcake, with a light whiff of enticing caramel pudding.

Taste:

A delightful soft honey with a slight salt-edged barley; an excellent mouthfeel with honeycomb sweetness.

Finish:

Immensely long, and richly flavoured with dissolving honey, barley, and succulent vanilla.

Balance:

A joyous barley plays intricately with high quality oak, that offers a dash of true goan pleasure!

Colour:

Deep Copper.

Paul John Nirvana

Aroma is basic but interesting, it shows a bit of youth and raw malt character but not in a cloying new make way (though their new make is pretty good); Palate is less sweet and less farmy than aroma but it's no less interesting; Finish is warm but short and I really wish it would stay around longer. All-in-all it's a nicely-executed basic whisky, which is exactly what it's meant to be

My new stand-by at home

The high score (94) in Jim Murray's Whiskey Bible is well-deserved. And for such a low price!! I'll always enjoy trying new single malts, but this bottle may become my new stand-by at home.

A nice blend of smooth and fruity

I love it because of its subtle, grounded flavour. It isn't a very bold whisky, which works for me. But it's the kind of whisky that is a nice blend of smooth and fruity.

I am a uk national spending many months of a year in india I'm so happy to have found such a good whiskey here. Nirvana compares to any good single malt Scottish whiskey.

Bozzy Reviews Nirvana By Paul John

Paul John Nirvana (40.0%): Here is the newest addition to Paul John's portfolio... It is their new entry-level single malt whisky with an incredibly low price tag intending to carve out a permanent space for itself in the cocktail scene. Like all their other expressions in the distillery's line-up, it is distilled from six-row barley grown in the north part of the country in the Himalayas. Nirvana uses unpeated malt only, is matured in ex-bourbon barrels, and bottled at 40%. Many thanks to Sazerac Company and Koray Kaan Özdemir a.k.a. Whisky Monster for providing us this sample bottle for the review.
