    [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?

    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".

    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
      87 87
      Spicy-sweet wine notes, waxy, intense blackberry and chocolate-cherry tones. Slight workshop smell, with an old bike oil aroma.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Round and cute, but not much more. For 51% surprisingly little alcohol was felt. Piquant forest floor aroma in the background
    • Finish
      85 85
      Tannins from the red wine, a spicy note of Icelandic moss

  6. 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.
