The Tropical Whisky.
 
Indian Whisky is not your usual Scottish single malt or a blend because it’s comprised out of molasses and not different grains. But not all Whisky made in India is molasses based… Oh no!
John Distilleries from Goa (oh, so they're not just dancing over there?) in southern India started out as a typical Indian Whisky producer back in 1992 and soon became one of the 3 biggest Whisky producers in country. But back in 2008 they decided to expand their expressions and include a Single malt that can go head to head with their Scottish counterparts.
 
The Indian barley used in the production comes from the foothills of Himalaya and is different to the European one because it yields less alcohol but gives out a higher flavor profile. The maturation itself happens in a tropical climate that is very harsh on the Angel share, over 20% evaporates each year... That is why Indian Whisky matures quite a lot faster than Scotch.
 
John Paul Brilliance is matured in bourbon barrels for 3-5 years and is unpeated. It is the first try by John Paul Distillers to pivot away from molasses style Whisky and they’ve done their job more than well! Brilliance from sun-kissed beaches of Goa.

Pretty good, but I am not in love with it.

Very fruity and sweet, vanilla, smooth, nice finish, just enough spice, drinks almost like a light bourbon

Alex,
Has a slight fruit taste but smells of vanilla and caramel. Would be good for dessert.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
I enjoyed it. My first Indian single malt. Orange and vanilla dominate the flavor. Spiciness lingers afterwards. Nice effort!
 
Eric
Eric,
Okay, this one is quite interesting. This is my first ever Indian whiskey, so I didn’t know what to expect. I actually really like it! Weird to have hints of fruit in my whiskey, but in this case, different is good! I can’t see myself drinking this on a regular basis, but I have enjoyed it.

Sean,
I wouldn't expect to find mango flavor in my scotch, but it fits well here along with a nose full of honey and a gentle, lingering cinnamon finish.

Gwen,
This would be delicious with a dessert, but I don't love it on its own.
