Paul John Brilliance- Indian Single Malt Whisky

Today I am reviewing a very unique whisky- Paul John Brilliance Single Malt from India. I call it unique because it is the first time I am trying an Indian Single Malt. In today's blog I will share the following information-
  • My research on the history behind this whisky
  • Vital Stats
  • Tasting notes
  • SJ's Rating
  • Food Pairing
  • Occasions best enjoyed & SJ's pro tip
Reads the product story " The brilliance of Goa is captured at its best to delight your senses. It is a non-chill filtered, non-peated Indian Single Malt". They use six row barley which is sourced from across the vast lands of Rajesthan & Haryana to the foothills of the Himalayas. With the higher husk content the barley produces an oilier wash which results them bottling the spirit with  at least 46% ABV. Add to that a robust and rich source of Goa water, it is a match made in heaven.
