Serenity now! Time to get meditative with an Indian Single Malt.

What do Whisky and the Indian island of Goa have in common, you ask? Well, suppose they both love a good party. This might have been the reasoning behind one Paul P. John's decision to expand his liquor biz with some premium single malts, opening a dedicated distillery on the aforementioned party island. Master Distiller Michael D’Souza carefully picks indigenous local ingredients, while the tropical climate makes sure every batch is matured perfectly. And quickly ― five years spent in the tropical climate are roughly equivalent to a 15-year-old Scotch.

The Paul John series was launched in 2012, exactly 20 years after Paul P. John took up his father's mantle and got into distilling. Nirvana Single Malt isn't about the band, but rather the mental state of pure, peaceful bliss. An adventure for old troupers and Whisky noobies alike, this unpeated spirit was crafted using Indian six-row barley and aged in new charred American oak barrels, resulting in a rich combo of sweetness & spice. At long last we've found the perfect yoga partner. Now that's the sort of cultural enrichment we can all get behind.

Appearance / Color
Deep copper

Nose / Aroma / Smell
Honey and fruit hit the nose instantly with some apricots and apples in there, then give way to gentle notes of vanilla, caramel, and oak.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
There's plenty of that honey sweetness on the palate, along with raisins, caramel, and the tiniest touch of seawater.

Finish
The finish is satisfyingly long with the honey, malt, and vanilla notes taking their sweet time before gently fading out.

Is it spelled Whisky or Whiskey? Maybe you've noticed it before, but let’s just take a wee moment to help you keep your Es in order with this simple rule: There is an E in the word Ireland, so there is also an E in their Whiskey. The rule also holds true for United States, so while there is no E in Scotland, Japan and Canada the same goes for their Whisky. All clear? Good.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.  
In the U.S., Irish Whiskey sales have jumped by over 500% since 2002. It’s the fastest growing category in the Spirits industry. There’s some news to raise your glass to.
