Paul John Bold whisky review: On revisiting this I had quite a different experience, the peat influence appears to have grown despite this likely gaining a couple of years maturation since we tasted the inaugural release version back in 2015. Perhaps it was this extra maturation or the gentle introduction by way of the Edited expression prior, but I was much more aware of the peat influence this time and enjoyed it quite a bit more too. 87/100

Paul John Edited whisky review: Tried previously but I hadn’t managed to write up notes. I do remember being taken aback by how ‘peaty’ this one seemed but I recognize this now as that herby/heathery and mentholic peat which I sometimes find a little challenging in Highland Park expressions. Presented well here it fits right into the sweet and malty Paul John (much as HP’s maltiness often rescues their expressions on my palate too). A wonderful blending together of Scotch and Indian single malt palates, sweet, malty, minty and peaty. 85/100
