The First ‘Whisky of the Week’ for 2018!  I start on an Indian note –  with the Paul John Classic Select Cask.  I love exploring world whisky.  Whisky that come from non-traditional countries such as South Africa, France, India or Taiwan.  It is probably linked to my endless wanderlust.  Drinking a whisky from a new country allows me to dream about traveling there and seeing it for myself.  When I got invited to taste a few Paul John during a tasting at Churchills Bar I was understandably excited.

In my non stop search for affordable and delicious bends I have tasted some rather “interesting” drams.  I have tried some excellent blends.
