  1. KB201 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    First there is a long maturation in former bourbon barrels and shortly before bottling, the whisky is decanted into former Pedro Ximénez sherry casks, which further shape the character of this Isle of Jura.

      Candied apple and subtle notes of smoke and herbs make up the aroma.

    Blind: Gorgeous old school nose, simpler further, but it's very good to drink.

    A really well made px finish. They have done an excellent job of finishing the whisky in sherry casks as the px effect is really evident.

    Quite a dessert whisky with sticky px sweetness. Juicy with notes of molasses, raisins, coffee and chocolate. Subtle medicinal peat on the finish. The bourbon maturation has minimal effect

    Not much complexity but a damn tasty malt. Really excellent as an after dinner drink

    Woody, slightly spicy.
    A lot of sherry, fruit, a light sweetness in the mouth.
    Beautiful, quite long finish.

    Very aromatic.
    Very well.
