Goa, India is 5000 miles from Islay, but closer than you think.

Paul John Distilleries was founded by Paul P. John in 1992 in India. To say that their growth has been amazing is to seriously understate things, because in just twenty years they have become one of the largest independent Spirits companies in the world. From their three large production facilities they serve up a broad range of products, including Wines, Brandies, Whiskies, and specialty spirit brands.

As we’ve mentioned before, the Paul John line of Single Malts are created in their newest distillery in Goa on the west coast of central India. All seven varieties have won international awards for quality — and those awards are well-deserved. Paul John Bold is a Single Malt made from local six-row barley, dried over peat imported from Islay. This is where the word "Bold" in the name comes to life. The phenol level (amount of peat flavor) comes in at 25 ppm — right in the middle range. Even an experienced Whisky pro would likely think he was tasting a classic Islay in a blind taste test.

Paul
Paul,
I really like this whisky. It reminds me of Laphroaig. If you are an Islay whisky fanatic and looking to try a good Asian whisky, Paul John Bold is one of your best shots!

WEIRDly smoky.

Jonathan,
It is peat-forward, and tasty BUT at this price point, i expect something with a little more complexity - or boldness dare I say? I actually like it best mixed with Coffee! To say it tastes better mixed tells you something, sorry. my senses aren't the strongest, but even from a Bold Whisky, I feel it's straight-forward whiskey. No Surprises.

Sean,
Really like this. Same flavor as the edited with more peat. Couldn’t have too much still given how sweet these are.

Really nice, one of the best peat forward whiskies I've had and it compares very well to products from traditional regions.

Gentle but spicy note and fresh taste with herbs on an instant aftertaste.
 
Mariano
Mariano,
Surprinsingly a very nice spicy whisky. I wonder how do they get drinkable water in order not to elevate production cost.
