Produced by John Distilleries in Goa, India, the Paul John range of single malt whiskies. Made using Indian 6-row barley from the Himalayan foothills, Brilliance is matured in bourbon barrels for 3-5 years before bottling at cask strength.
Good core of juicy barley. Ryvita with salted butter. Cinnamon-dusted-red berries, with a little green apple skin following it up. The palate has lots of chewy caramel and chocolate. Picks up from lively spice along the way, with a little bit of waxy orange peel on the mid palate. The finish is long, with the rye notes from the nose coming back in full force.
