  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Rather creamy, shimmering, with dried fruits. Slightly maritime, it is rather cool and dynamic. Blindly, I would have bet on a younger malt
    • Taste
      Round, with minimal influence of sherry though. Spices hang a little on the end of the mouth.
    • Finish
      I find the driftwood of Jura with fruits. Slight lack of balance.

      Enthusiasm 3/5
      Whisky n ° 1924

      Very smooth, too smooth. Bourbon dominates.

      Fades away quite quickly. I don't think the age shows in this one. Some liquorice in the end.

    Cardboard sweet, hints of chocolate in the smell. Sweet and spicy on the tongue. Sweet aftertaste, some cheese and maggi. Overall, despite the color, hardly any wood, makes no mature impression, but a lot of sherry. For 19 years and just under 46% surprisingly sharp on the tongue and fairly short finish. I got the bottle as a gift and drank it myself out of gratitude (partly with support), but I don't need it again.

    I find a strange note on top of the sherried flavors that is not very pleasant.
    Almost like smelling a hint of propane-gas, which ruins the impression and the experience for me.

    This whisky, over-all, is not so complex for a 19 year old, but not too bad.
    Though, this strange note on the nose is off-putting.

      A strange odor arrives first, propane-like (or the thing they put into it, so you can smell a leak).
      Behind that though, there is sherry and even a hint of peat.
      Quite pleasant, but this whisky is rather shy, I had to add quite a lot of water and wait for white a while before it opened up.
      Sherry, caramel and some vanilla.

      Sweet arrival, quickly overtaken by spicy notes some slightly salty notes.
      Wood influence and quite pleasant, once watered down a little. In the start if was mostly just spices, it is better now.
    • Finish

      Quite long after-taste of a little sweet, a little sour and then licorice, pretty pleasant.

      Very fruity and sweet, red berries, caramel, raisins. Character from the distillery comes through well. Personally, I don't think it's a very pleasant scent, but it's nice that it does come through.
    • Taste

      Vanilla, very sweet, caramel, raisins, nice sherry.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium finish, cocoa and hazelnuts, raisins. Unfortunately no balance.

    Aroma: very sweet, raisins, intense, typical notes of jura in the form of root vegetables, oak, light dark chocolate, slightly nutty, alcohol is not noticeable
    Taste: soft, very sweet, vanilla, cereals, roasted hazelnuts, beautiful sherry notes which could also be a full ripening
    Finish: medium long, sweet and slightly dry from the oak

    A Top Jura - so far the best (as of 05.07.2019)
