Paul John Peated Select Cask

Country: India
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 55.5%
Score: 91 points

This cask-strength peated single malt from John Distilleries in Goa has a nose with Islay-like peatiness creosote, and medicinal notes, along with dried grass, honey, cocoa, and a subtle hint of ginger with good balance. The taste is mouth-watering with an intense peatiness, creosote, and a hint of tar that slowly fades to reveal touches of honey, linseed oil, and dark chocolate. The finish is smoky and sweet in good balance with honey sweetness, barbecue-like taste, and touches of wet hickory smoke. Excellent! (December, 2014)
