Paul John Brilliance Bottling Note

Produced by John Distilleries in Goa, India, the Paul John range of single malt whiskies (named after their Chairman) represents a move into premium spirits for a company who are already big players in the Indian molasses 'whisky' market.

Made using Indian 6-row barley from the Himalayan foothills, Brilliance is matured in bourbon barrels for 3-5 years before bottling at cask strength. (As with Amrut, the tropical climate cause greater evaporation, around 12-13% a year, but in turn they show very well at younger ages.)

    Brilliant Whisky overall....bye bye Scotch

    Brilliance is very delicious whisky...I have tried several Scotch Whiskies and this Indian Whiskies surely can give any scotch whisky a run for its money...highly recommended and absolutely love it..

    False reviews

    There is something funny going on with these reviews. I notice a trend of hate reviews of some brands and I don't believe this at all. I have tried this whisky before and is just a real good whisky from India.

    23rd January 2015

    Oh that smell!!!

    The bottle is covered in Mold and smells horrible - stale damp smell of mold. Would never buy this again.

    15th December 2014

    Mold Smell!!!

    The minute you take out the bottle from the canister it literally reeks of this foul "Mold" smell!!! Sorry but there is something seriously wrong with this whisky.
