  1. Skip Jefferson did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Whiskyfun.com by Serge: Isle of Jura 1999/2006 ‘Feis Ile 2006’ (58.4%, OB, cask #5000, 500 bottles) A new extravaganza by the Jura crew, finished for six months in a solera cask and six further months in Mathusalem sherry. Colour: gold. Nose: starts quite smooth and honeyed, tarry, gingery, rather syrupy. Notes of dried oranges, getting then nicely vinous and animal (game, gravy, cow barn). Hints of liquorice. Gets beautifully resinous, with hints of eucalyptus and camphor, old Chartreuse, toffee… Very complex considering it’s young age. Mouth: nervous, starting on heavy liquorice and salt. Creamy. Quite explosive and very rich. Goes on with salted caramel, resin, fir honey, cough syrup, crystallised oranges and lemons… Lots of peat but it’s nicely integrated. Gets spicy, on cloves and pepper. Long finish on lemon balm and smoked tea. A very rich one and a finishing that really succeeded I think. 89 points.
