8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.79 points

  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The Jura octomore? Rather sweet peat, a bit fruity, I guess peat lovers will enjoy it but really one dimensional

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Harsh industrial whisky with smoke, rubber, chemistry, but also classic chocolate and coffee notes are not forgotten, as always very delicate and with a fine elaboration of details.
    • Nose
      Restrained, dry, first nose - peat and rubber; dry boards, old bonfire, wood dust, uncoated tablets, mineral notes - plaster, stone chips, gypsum; light sulfur shades, fawn, a little bit of dark chocolate and coffee.
    • Taste
      Powerful, saturated, smoke, peat, rubber, here it is much brighter than in the aroma, sweet syrup-chemical notes, pepper wave, sulfur-mineral shades, dark chocolate, cappuccino, roasted nuts, charred branches.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, peat, sweet smoky notes, creamy tones, boiled condensed milk, butterscotch, dark chocolate, cappuccino, metallic acidity, like a battery licked, sulfur-mineral shades.

    Peat on the nose, but nothing frightening either. But also, cascading: wood, fruit, caramel, salt. In the mouth, the peat dominates clearly cons, at least on the first sips. Behind is wood. The texture is thick. By letting it open, the honey begins to dominate the nose, and it is found in the mouth for something more balanced now. The addition of water does not transcend the nose but does not lose any of its vigor, but in the mouth, it is more juicy, with even more honey, and driftwood (quite typical of Jura elsewhere, as a Prophecy under steroids). Long finish on peat. Enthusiasm 3/5

  4. autowatch092 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Very smoky, camp fire, smoked bacon, a slight fruitiness is noticable
    Palate: Strong peat, some pepper, a bit sweet, with water citrus notes emerge.
    Finish: Long and smoky.
    Overall: A great young peat monster that doesn’t have to hide behind its cousins from Islay.


  5. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    The mushroom side of Jura is clear, with more caramel and candied orange peel. Attack slightly peaty, powerful mouth, better than nose, caramel, thick texture. Enough monolithic despite everything. Long finish on caramel and black mushroom.

  6. Ivynor scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Rather confusing and hard to follow. better however than many of the official Jura.
    • Nose
      A little peaty, buttered and slightly caramelized. The nose is strange, oscillates between an impression of soap, oil, and something "dirty" (rotten wood, foam)
    • Taste
      Rough enough, hard to drink. Not very sweet, with a slightly creamy texture. Peat, iodine and seaweed are associated with a little citrus and always these "dirty" notes. Alcohol moderately integrated. Sherry little marked or nonexistent.
    • Finish
      A bit peppery, rough, marine, with touches of moldy wood, old cellar.

  7. nulty scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I didn't expect much from this one but it's more than decent.

    It does lack balance and the peat/ashes combo sometimes come across as a bit agressive.
    • Nose
      More on earthy notes than peat at first. Butter, hazelnuts, dried raisins and liquorice. Maybe a tad too much alcool. With some time the peat comes out, with some meaty aromas and BBQ.
    • Taste
      There come the peat. Quite smoky as well, with some salty notes (sea spray). Some fruits that's don't last. Quickly fades away and ends on ashes.

      Taste lasts longer with a few drops of water, more fruits as well (citrus fruits). Thick, nice mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      Ashes, warm but too oaky with water.

  8. granella2003 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Strong peat, smoke, fruit and mineral aromas.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it is really peaty, minerals, green apples and lemon peels are also provided.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium length with notes of licorice , curry, pepper and tar
