  1. Moses scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    I have to say in advance that this is my first good law, which I respect very much. Strong barrel selection and good management bring a result that is impressive. Great made 20s for this money. PLV a go from me!
    • Nose
      These are not typical law grades. Immediately you can smell the aromatic diversity of the wine barrels. Very fine and almost inconspicuous, it delivers a full range of floral and fruity as well as grassy and somewhat sour. Class !
    • Taste
      Full and full-bodied, it lets the muscles flex. Clear wine notes spread in the mind space. It is warm and creamy on the palate. Light chocolate with wonderful berry notes. Sweet and sour alternate. Done perfectly. Respect.
    • Finish
      Medium to long with a peppery wood-tobacco combination, it slowly dries up and still provides a good warming blend of spices. I am impressed. If André shoots the one at YT, I'll be there "immediately".

    As a fan of Jura general "weird" taste profile, that has in last years been changed in their core range to more commonly tasting whisky, I was very curious about this bottle. There should remain some of that "cheesines" in taste profile (as reviews stated), yet due to age and maturation it wasnt supposed to overpower whole tasting experience.

    So distillery-specific whisky that has its age for smooth and complex taste and also afordable since not all bottles were sold apperently?
    That is a must-have for me! Red wine maturation made me a little concerned, since that is in general not preferred finishing/maturing cask type for me.
    And how were my expectations fulfilled?

    Greatly!

    The whisky has instantly after opening great nose. Sweet, honey-like, with a very very subtle smoky note. This is as best as it could be - generous, rich and beautiful. After some time in the glass - it even opens up more and you could really spend hours just with the scent.
    For the taste it holds with the nose somehow, the only problem is some light bitternes or tannine-like flavour that feels a little disturbing. After some time in glass whisky integrates these not pleseant taste notes into generally great tasting profile. Again, it is rich, gentle and complex, with some specifics coming (presumably) from maturation type (slight bitternes) and distillery specific profile (early mentioned cheesines).
    But these extraordinarities in the taste make it great all together as a very specific and fine specimen of Jura production.
    For that price tag - full recomendation from me - when you want something good yet interesting to your whisky shelf.

  5. DulischM scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A multi-layered whisky that also has a certain lightness.
    • Nose
      Dark fruits, morello cherries and brome meet aromas of dark chocolate and old wood. Spicy mulled wine with cloves and anise is sweetened with liquid honey and syrup. Very ripe papaya adds some exotic flavor.
    • Taste
      The whisky is smooth, sweet and woody. The taste is somewhat reminiscent of blackberry liqueur with honey. Add some chocolate and cloves.
    • Finish
      In the finish a light woody note with chocolate and sweet syrup.

  6. WhiskeryTurnip scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    This seems like a love it or hate it dram. The wife clearly wanted nothing to do with it. I had more mixed feelings— it was almost one of those drams that are just so weird and so almost good that you want to keep drinking. It was like one of those foods you find a little unappetizing, but you cannot stop eating for some reason— not until you know for sure if it is delicious or gross.

    Mental Image: Tamarind pod stuck to a rubber slipper.
    • Nose
      Beeswax in a damp salty cheese cave. Peanut or honey almond butter, Chinese boiled peanuts, and a bit of almond oil provide a faintly herbal nuttiness. Salted fish, faint antiseptic notes, and rich woodiness come and go. The wife reckoned it more like a sweet creamy coffee liqueur.
    • Taste
      Sweet sun-dried tamarind, dried persimmons and apricots, grassy heather, and buttermilk. There is a lot going on in the glass but it is not always cohesive. Yogurt, cottage cheese, pond scum, and dashes of allspice and sage— I do not know what we are cooking. It has a nice oily body that leaves behind a mild astringency.
    • Finish
      Lingering black pepper, licorice, a bit of old pastry, and an old red rubber boot. The wife offered only a frown.

      red fruit / berry, spicy, leather becomes more, mini cheese, fruit cake, nutty, slightly rubber, slightly oak, mini solvent, tobacco, vanilla

      with water: more leather, roasted chestnuts, wood on the grill, fermented raisins, cherries, chemical note
    • Taste
      full, oily, strong
      old leather, library (old books), dusty, old wood (towards mahogany), tobacco, acorns / chestnuts, dry leaves from the tree, vanilla

    Quick hit review. Whisky calendar - Day 3.

    Usually I avoid Jura like the plague, but that has more to do with Whyte & Mackay and not the distillery itself. A bit closed at first, the nose opens up with distinct red wine notes, fudge and cranberries. Water helps to unpack the flavors. The palate surprises with red currants, licorice and complex wood spices. Sweet and sour, balanced and rather long, the finish adds to my excitement. This is by far the best Jura I have tasted to date!

    It's always a thing with these vattings from different types of casks. In which direction should it go? Too much of everything, too little of much ... In the end, however, a decent malt comes out, which, like the Dalmore King Alexander, does not manage to convince as 'something very special' in the long term.

    Delicious mix, a tad too sweet, but quite appealing. Round thing.
    • Nose

      Spicy-sweet wine notes, waxy, intense blackberry and chocolate-cherry tones. Slight workshop smell, with an old bike oil aroma.

      Round and cute, but not much more. For 51% surprisingly little alcohol was felt. Piquant forest floor aroma in the background
    • Finish

      Tannins from the red wine, a spicy note of Icelandic moss

  19. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    This is a really good drop. Both the maritime notes of an island whisky as well as the fruity notes of distillery and the barrel influences are easy to detect and result in a harmonious whole. Is a purchase candidate.
    • Nose
      90 90
      In the beginning fruit gummy bears and iodine. Rice pudding with cinnamon. Dust and mint appear. Next up is Nekatarine before it gets sweeter with vanilla and chocolate. Later rubber and tea.

      First sweet berries, then iodine and vanilla. The alcohol is strong.

    Very interesting, memorable whisky, which has bright features and good balance.
    • Nose
      Shades of dried gooseberries, dusty hay, old skin and fallen leaves, as well as iodine, spices and almost imperceptible smoke.
    • Taste
      Berry and honey tones, followed by spices, salt, tannins and a light smoked note.
    • Finish
      Long, measured, slightly smoky, with nuances of dried fruits, dried berries, spices and the delicate influence of oak.

  23. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Good whisky in the Jura style, a slightly squeezed aroma, straightened over time, rich, but delicate taste / finish, characteristic for the distillery profile.
    • Nose
      Discreet, dry, old wood, unvarnished furniture, boiled vegetables, burnt caramel, prunes, light sulfur-mineral shades, coffee, herbarium, light peat motifs.
    • Taste
      Powerful, rich, wood-sweet - prunes, oak, coffee, dark chocolate, crackers, leavened wort, leather goods, boiled condensed milk, burnt blackcurrant jam.
    • Finish
      Spicy, refreshing, prunes, coffee, chocolate, nuts, notes of a porter, burnt caramel, creamy notes, orange zest, soy sauce.

    Very nice and very interesting Jura, with clear touches of wine without going over the top. Around 150 EUR, which seems a fair price for a malt of two decades.
    • Nose
      The nose needs a little time. It starts closed, but hand warmth and patience can work miracles. The wine casks have helped to create a very aromatic nose on oranges, red berries, maple syrup and toffee, with hints of marzipan and something sweet & sour that I cannot quite pinpoint. There is also a floral touch and some ferns. This is very good.
    • Taste
      It is quite oily and mouth coating, mildly piquant and sweet on red fruit and oranges, with clear influences of the wine. It flirts with being vinous, but stays on the right side of that border, which I can appreciate. Again loads of maple syrup and ginger and a touch of black pepper. This works just fine.
    • Finish
      I get some tobacco leafs and more ginger and some wood in the long finish, while it remains sweet and sour.

    [November, 2017]  There are not that many Jura releases that I really like.  This is because of the sometimes stronger, sometimes weaker cheesy flavours that are a kind of a Jura trademark.  But I like cheese on my plate only and not in my glass...

    Unfortunately, this slight cheesy aroma pops up in the nose immediately after opening this bottle, too.  But luckily it vanishes (almost) completely after some minutes in the glass and when I poured another dram some days later it was (almost) gone.  The colour is tawny and the texture shows slow legs and late sticky tears.  The nose is very winey (all different kinds of wine flavours) in a mix with spices (ginger), herbs (camphor), heather honey and some hints of fruits.  A very slight cheesy aroma still is there but it is not unpleasant.  This is a quite complex nose that is interesting to explore.  The dram arrives nicely on the palate with a warming and coating feeling.  Just minor bitter notes from heavy tannins (as usual with wine cask maturations).  The taste itself is really great on a melting pot of dozens of flavours from the different wine casks and the spirit.  Among them (white) chocolate, liquorice and red fruits (cherries, raspberries).  All multi-layered and nicely balanced, I really like that!  The finish is long and more on the spicy and herbal side what is a good addition to the taste.  No distracting moments except a slight drying out (papers) at the very end.

    All in all one of the best Jura I tried over the last years.  While the nose is interesting but not my favourite profile both the taste and finish are truly great.  A very nice vatting of different wine cask maturations with a price tag that is rather above that what I call adequate (I paid 150 Euro for this bottle - I think something between 100-120 Euro would be adequate).  But we all are living in a tremendous whisky boom time, don't we?
