Brand: Paul John
Type: Single Malt
Strength: 46% ABV
Created by Master Distiller Michael John using Indian 6-row barley as well as peated Scottish barley. The final vatting contains 15% of the peated spirit with maturation taking place in bourbon casks.
Nose: Toasted cereal, big barley and honey notes, Hob Nobs! Slightly vegetal peatiness, lemon and seaweed. Some beach bonfire but the peat isn’t overpowering. Malty.
Palate: Wood spices, a bowl of porridge with honey and then demerara whilst sat beside a fireplace.
Finish: A touch of mocha, oak and old fashioned liquorice.
