  1. WhiskeryTurnip scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    An old Jura that definitely still brought the funk. After nearly three decades in a refill hogshead this took on quite a bit of woody influence which balanced nicely against some of the odd maritime aspects. Despite a light mouthfeel, this still packed quite a bit of flavor, and the finish lasted for a good long time. The flavor profile really did not come together for me, while it was really interesting, it was not to my taste— I like funky profiles, but this was not my kind of funk. The maritime and subtle smoke notes did not really pair with some of the creamy vanilla that kept trying to come through.

    While I did not care for this one as much, I will note that a couple of friends thought it was stellar and one of their favorite bottles of all time. Unsurprisingly, I gave them the rest of what I had so they could enjoy it.

    Mental Image: Curio Shop Jar of Pickled Blobfish
    • Nose
      Honey, herbs, and woody resin. An old pot of vanilla and cream, pickled science jars, and coconut lotion on the beach. Disoriented, the nose moved toward resinous wood and velvet in an antique or curio shop.
    • Taste
      Light and delicate with an herbal profile of subtle smoke and sea. Honey and wood resin appeared with salty rotting vegetation, smoke-infused velvet furniture, and maritime florals in the background. Faint fish sauce arrived with sea asparagus and the slightly bitter end of a teapot.
    • Finish
      Lingering notes of herbal tea and honey.
