Paul John Indian Single Malt Whisky
THE GREAT INDIAN SINGLE MALT
As each drop is as delicate as a pearl on a sting, with the golden waves colliding with the pulsating spices from India- the Great Indian Single Malt is one of the most versatile spirits on the table. The 6-Row Barley used in the malt is specially grown in the foothills of Himalayas and is harvested during summer for its perfect maturity, unlike the two-row barley from Scotland. The boldness is admired with a lot more proteins and tannins, as a result, there is a lot of fatty acids that adds to the character.'
From germination to malting and peating of these special barley grains comes with a distinctive smokiness and taste; while the non-chill filtering helps in retaining their original color and taste. For Peated Whisky, Peat is imported from Scotland – Islay and Aberdeen. Goa’s weather is endured as it helps in the faster maturation at an angel share of 8%, than any other whisky produced in the colder climate. The double distillation of the single malt in traditionally designed copper pot stills makes the spirit acquire a distinct, rich, full-bodied flavor.
