PAUL JOHN SELECT CASK PEATED ~ INDIA
88/100 Distiller Score
Nose - Walnut, barley sugar sweets, and classic earthy peat notes. A touch of salt.
Palate - More BBQ smoke, more sugar, more slightly damp earthy notes. Hints of tropical fruit and spice.
Finish - Bitter orange peels on the finish.
Overall: Catches a good balance of "sweet" and "peat" loved by many.
John Distilleries was founded by Paul John in 1992, when they began producing a number of spirits, including Indian molasses ‘whisky’. One of their most well-known products, Original Choice, continues to be extremely popular to this day, selling 10 million cases annually.
Their splendid selection includes both unpeated and peated single malts, most of which are matured in ex-bourbon casks, though there have been a smattering of Sherry cask releases over the years.
