Kanya, the latest expression of the Paul John Single Malts, has been awarded the prestigious Asian Whisky of the Year in the 2018 edition of Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible with a score of 96 out of 100. This unpeated and limited edition expression of the Paul John Single Malts will be released in January 2018.

Key notes from Jim Murray’s review about Kanya, “Even towards the finale there is still Manuka honey to be found …when a distillery can find honey at the very end of its flavour range and profile, you know they have cracked it. Superb!”
About Kanya by Paul John
Ruled by Mercury and symbolised by the virgin, Kanya is the dignified Indian counterpart of the highly appealing Virgo, the sixth zodiac sign of the universe. With its earthy, feminine sensuousness, this deep amber expression personifies the intrinsic characteristics of the Kanya.
An exotic unpeated expression from the sunny shores of Goa, Kanya has been matured for 7 years in American white oak casks, and its aromas of citrusy spice and tropical fruit lure you to savour its creamy, butterscotch sweetness. The satisfying finish of toasted oak with warm wafts of honey and spice has just the slightest hint of salt, making it ever more memorable.
With rare complexities and an exquisitely balanced dryness, the Kanya is perhaps one of the softest Indian whiskies ever to be bottled.

    Hi there.. The price rise does seem to be an issue with some people but I’d say it is demand that will set the price.. of it sells then the price was right..

    Hi Tyrone..
    Kanya is a lovely dram and although I understand your thoughts I still think it is worth a little more than the select casks..


  3. Maddy says:

    A rather big price jump if you want my opinion as I have tried the other offerings and for a fraction of the price I would rather buy those.


  4. Tyrone says:

    Hi there, Do you think this is actually worth the asking price ? I have hadachsnce to try and in all the honesty I preferred the select casks, what are your thoughts ?


  5. L Laverette says:

    What i do not realize is actually how you do not say it is not worth the sudden price rise ? Kanya is a lot more money than even the single cask what are released so can it really be worth so much more money ?


  6. Kraig says:

    Look forward to this release and your review once you get the chance.

    It’s always hard to really dissect a whisky at a festival, better to try at home with peace and quiet..

  8. That’s a really nice pour. I was able to take a small sip of it last weekend at a Northern German whisky fair called Bottle Market. Paul John’s importer Bremer Spirituosen Contor already had the Kanya at their booth and let me try it. To give more profound feedback on it, I would need to sit down with a dram without ruffle or excitement. But my first impression was indeed very good… I liked how the malt’s gentleness harmonized rather than clashed with its fervour.
