  1. karloff scored this whisky 74 points Specialist

    Seven Wood? Sounds like a sex party at Snow White's house. What is going on with Jura? I hope this was just a one off experiment. Well done for trying, now move on. This was a sample courtesy of my Polish neighbour Mick.

      Not much on the nose at all, what is there is very faint. I can find Kiwi Fruit, blood orange, Lyon's golden syrup, dark plum, blackberries and raspberries.
    • Taste

      The taste is okay,pleasant enough, dark fruits with a little spice, even some dark chocolate. I think someone might have mentioned this but there is too much in the mix, most of it is lost leaving only a couple of dominant features. Also it is lacking a bit of a kick.

      A medium dark fruity finish, again with chocolate on the death but not dark this time. In fact the finish is the best thing about it.

  2. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    there are too many barrels and therefore no one gets through properly and you get nothing "to grasp"
    that is nothing, is too thin
    • Nose
      Flower meadow, pastries, light and green malt, hay, a bit strange, minimal smoke
      later elastic bands and bright fruit
    • Taste
      soft and silky on the palate
      bitter, wood, espresso ??
    • Finish
      medium long
      bitter, red berry is coming

  3. Alessandr0 scored this whisky 67 points Newbie

    Did not like. It's hard to compare something, it's hard to spot some notes of flavor or taste. Sweet in the nose, sweet on the tongue. Lotion, vanilla, something like that ... Aftertaste some rosy, unpleasant, as if sucking the sole of an old boot.

    I do not know, maybe I did not understand something, but this drink does not deliver pleasure to me. The standard Jura 10 yo is much nicer, albeit almost twice as cheap.

  4. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Very woody nose, sandalwood, blueberry, a touch of smoke.
    On the palate the influence of the French wine barrels is felt, it's quite warm, complex. Bunches of grapes, bark of wood, fig. Final moderately long.
