Liquid Gold from Goa, India.
Made using Indian 6-row barley from the Himalayan foothills, Brilliance is matured in ex-Jack Daniels bourbon barrels. Big fruity malt, oily texture with honeyed spice, this tasty little number is always a big selling single malt. Unpeated, non chill filtered with natural colouring.
Nose: Good core of juicy barley. Toasted grain with salted butter. Cinnamon-dusted-red berries, with a little green apple skin following it up.
Palate: Lots of chewy caramel and chocolate here. Picks up from lively spice along the way, with a little bit of waxy orange peel on the mid palate.
Finish: Orange lingers. Surprisingly long, with the rye notes from the nose coming back in full force.
Great price and even better flavour.
