Whisky Reviews for Isle of Jura Turas-Mara
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.85 points
- People tend to dismiss Jura too easily. This expression is surprising multi-layered. Taste it first and you get a pleasant hint of smokeyness, leave it for a few minutes and it opens up with a fruit cocktail that is hugged by a smoke layer. Should have picked up more when I was still a busy air traveller...
- It deserves its 86 points for being a good, solid whisky. In the Nose I mostly got fresh fruit, which then slowly went into a more savoury direction. Everyone online says cherries, but I really don't think so, it's more of pear and quince at first, but also the dark forest fruit that were promised. Also grapes, which get progressively more raisin-ish. It's like smelling the grapes while they dry..
On the palate you can once again find fruity notes, the alcohol is well balanced.
Sweetness and wood lingers for a medium-length finish.
I tasted it outside, so maybe my notes indoors would be different, nonetheless I enjoyed this a lot.
