A great balance of sweet and peat with a dash of heat. 

John Distilleries was founded by Paul P. John in 1996 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.

The Paul John line of Single Malts are created in the newest distillery in Goa on the west coast of central India. Their seven varieties have been recognized with international awards for quality since their first releases. The Paul John Peated Select Cask is made from local malted barley, but the peat is imported from Scotland. Every detail is attended to. It has been aged in ex-Bourbon casks and bottled without chill-filtration at cask strength — a whopping 55.5% ABV. It’s a rich, thick, and powerful expression of one of the best spirits to come out of Indias thriving Whiskey industry. Namaste!

Donald
Donald,
I like the smoky and earthy flavors. I like this very much.

Chris,
Couldn’t finish

Lloyd,
Part of my tasting box. I didn't get the peat at first, very subtle on those notes. The oak was there with a light char. Not a bad dram, but not among my first choices for a peated whisky.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Got it in my tasting box so I was sure to savor and take my time with it. As soon as I opened it I could smell the smoky peat emerging from the bottle. After letting it breathe a bit I could really smell the mellow oak. Every sip was smooth in the beginning, builds to a spicy burn, like a black pepper flavor in the back ground, finishing with a hint of sweet roasted spices that lingered for a while. It is one of those whiskeys that warms you up, so I would love to have some on a cold winter day after being outside in the snow. This was my first Indian single malt ever and I will definitely keep in in mind for the fall/winter here in Colorado.

Spicy with a hint of sweet finish. I love it.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a good, intense, Indian Single Malt Whisky that has an aromatic birth; while a complex life leads to a long & complex death with notes of dried orange, rose & malted barley. The high alcohol masks the signature potpourri.

Very alcohol forward. Beautiful Amber color. Peat nose with a hint of orange peel. Heat! Smoke forward. Peat and phenol taste. Added 3 drops of water. That tamed the nose to almost a herb-like quality. The water brought the honey forward with a smokey peat finish. Drew the heat farther back. Would be far down the line in my choices. Tasted new.

Joseph,
An unusual peated whiskey. Has similar flavor profile to a cognac but just with a kick of heavy peat.
 
Steve
Steve,
Pretty solid, don’t get me wrong. But they overdo it with the alcohol. It covers too much of the taste.

Shaun,
I was really excited to try this one. Sadly I wasn't as impressed as I though I would be. For me - not bad but nothing to write home about.

If you like phenols this is your dram. If you want any other flavor at all - this one isn't for you.
 
Melissa
Melissa,
Smelled very strong, wasn't very smooth. The initial taste was kind of like rubbing alcohol but the after taste wasn't bad.
