Paul John Brilliance
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.)
Nose: Cereal and buttered toast with a hint of cinnamon.
Palate: More cinnamon with Chomp bars and citrus.
Finish: Honey and gentle spices.
Overall: A fine Indian single malt from John Distilleries.

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..
