    Sniff:
    Rather light on the nose but with the typical rubber bands that is a common scent in Jura whiskies. Rubbery and feinty, so to say. Earthy, slightly mossy and with hint of hay and card board.

    Sip:
    The palate is dusty and earthy with some oak and white pepper. Rubber bands again and old moss, cardboard and hay. Quite Jura-y, all in all.

    Swallow:
    The finish is rather long but doesn’t really offer anything new.

    Ozark

    This 13-year-old Isle of Jura from 2006 was given the name Two-One-Two, which refers to small community on the island, which at the time of bottling consisted of 212 people. It matured in ex-bourbon barrels, but then got a finish in chinkapin oak, sometimes also called yellow chestnut oak, which can be found in the Ozark Mountains in Missouri.

    The nose is very pleasant with nice notes of stewed fruit (think apricots and peach but also some apples and a hint of banana), supplemented with a good spiciness. A touch of molded wood, which I often encounter in (modern) Jura. Something from freshly baked cake. The hint of wet newspapers (which I encounter even more at Jura) fortunately does not bother me in this case. Good nose!

    The body is on the light side and on the palate it is immediately very spicy. Quite a few wood herbs now though. The chinkapin has left its mark. And in this way unfortunately also suppresses the fruit quite a bit. The peach and apricot is barely to be discovered. Instead I get some orange peels and vanilla. Walnuts sprinkle some more bitterness around. Not bad, but the nose promised a lot more fruit.

    The finish is relatively long on walnuts and cloves.

    Nevertheless, one of the better recent releases of this house that I have already tasted. Much better than the 10- or 12-year-old. This is at the level of the 18-year-old or the Seven Wood.

    I'm assuming that Chinkapin means Virgin Oak here. In my opinion, it is not quite obvious.
    At least it feels like fresh wood has been used here.

    Basically a somewhat unusual Jura, unfortunately not only in a positive sense. The wood just dominates here too much for me and has a clear tendency towards imbalance. Something spoils my sudden desire to try the Jurassic, but luckily it hasn't completely destroyed it. Let's see what will be examined next. The two-one-two, however, is labeled as absolutely uninteresting.

    The price is also pretty rough, Distillery Bottling or not.

      Very dry, very dusty. One immediately thinks that the Virgin Oak Cask clearly comes through here. In addition, this somewhat strange and delicately musty candyshop sweetness, which immediately reminds me of the old Jura 10 years of Origin. After a few moments, dry spices and tart chocolate find harmony with a delicately creamy fruit note reminiscent of berries, orange peel and dry (construction) wood. Like a new spruce shelf with sawdust and chocolate with orange pieces. After a while it gives a relatively round overall picture, but GlenAllachie has managed it much better with the Virgin Oak series, for example. The fresh barrels bother me a bit here. Not bad tho.

      Old moth, here comes the wood again. Sawdust, lumber, spruce needles, dusty carpenter's workshop. Everything reunited. Fortunately, a few more sweet oranges and generally a delicate creamy sweetness shine through, otherwise everything would have ended in an absolutely exaggerated wooden soup. But that's just okay, the fruits keep the balance. Even if it hangs by a thread.

      Actually fits quite well. The wood is a little less dominant here, dry spices and dried out orange peel form a surprisingly smooth and fairly long finish.

    Nose: Grassy, vanilla, hay, apple

    Palate: Ginger Style sharp, then softer er with vanilla before bitterness sets in. Woody finish. Bitterness stays.

    Jura Two One Two 47.5% #1 Ltd ed series. Aroma of white tack, musty oak, custard creams, white mice sweets. Bit muddled and muted. Taste is biscuity, oaky, pleasant full flavour with faint floral notes. Soft peat integrates and doesn't show up as smoke as such. There's still plenty of white oak here but I'm guessing the Chinkapin adds some steely hard edges ... floral fruity notes alongside some white choc. Slight soapy note. It's hard to say where the white oak ends and the Chinkapin oak begins but it's a decent oak-forward whisky. It grew on me a little over time. A solid whisky. 3.4/81

    Scotch whisky, double matured in american oak and still does remind me of Japanese whisky. Spices (Nutmeg), nutty, honey, wood with some sweetnes and pepper on the palate. Love it!

    Nose : sweet pastries, stewed fruit, mostly apricots, peaches, baked apples, wet cardboard, damp wood, sandalwood, and wood spices.

    Palate: quite sharp and powerful on entry, then getting sweeter and creaky with vanilla, wood spice, and custard, a hint of chocolate praline and orange maybe.

    Finish: Lingering sweetness with chocolate N’ nut, orange peel.

    All in all, this is a very good whisky, certainly feels nice on the palate at 47.5%, with the chinkapin wood adding a nice spiciness and enhancing the original ex-bourbon wood. Certainly one of the better recently released Jura. very nice.

    This expression has been matured in ex-Bourbon barrels and finished in chinkapin oak casks.

    Chinkapin, or Quercus muehlenbergii, is a sub-species of white American oak that grows in areas of the north-east United States, including the Ozarks in Missouri.
