Paul John Single Cask 161 Whisky

Paul John 225x300 Paul John Single Cask 161 Whisky ‘Whisky from India?’ you ask?  Well yes, and this debut expression from John Distilleries has been creating a major stir in the whisky world since its recent launch.  Rave reviews for the first of a series of single cask whiskies include a ‘Liquid Gold’ award from The Whisky Bible.   Bottled to cask strength of 57% abv, just a single cask of John Distilleries inaugural whisky has been released totalling 150 bottles.   The whisky is made from Indian malted barley before being aged in ex-Bourbon barrels in the tropical heat of Goa to provide an extremely approachable experience, with sweet notes of honey and ripe fruits, a touch of spice and a clean finish.  Considering the quality and the limited supply, there aren’t too many better whiskies to spend £60 on.
