Isle of Jura 1988/2012 24yo TWA Joint bottling with Bresser & Timmer 700ml 50.8%vol. Ex-Bourbon Hogshead 251 btls. これは,安心感抜群の TWA だけど,ギャンブル性の予感がしていた Isle of Jura 1988! そりゃ,Isle of Jura でギャンブル性を感じないわけがないですよ? Color:意外と,醤油ギッシュを感じない,ほうじ茶のような控え目な色. なので,よりいっそう不気味な予感がします. Attach:キタキタ!やっぱり, けっこうなパヒューミー!エグイ化粧っぽさ!香水っぽさ! Body:これは,Color 同様に重厚な醤油ギッシュは意外とありませんでした. 薄いけど印象に残る,あんかけや酢豚のような微妙系の和の味わい. 醤油ギッシュ一辺倒にならないところがさすがは TWA? Taste:錆びた容器で頂く lemon tea のすっぱさがたまらない. 床暖房の上で無残に溶けて臭くなった蜜柑がおいしくなったような不思議な果実感のある味わい. Finish:私が苦手なサラダの中の蜜柑や正月の干し柿などのトラウマが消えていく,これまたちょっと渋苦系の抜け方がたまりません. お久しぶりの Isle of Jura で心配したが,こういうのを頂くと,ほっと一息です.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Apple and menthol, leather and peat. That is the essence of this great nose. Fairly clean and straightforward, although it becomes more fruity if you leave it to breath for a while. It also has a great coastal side.

Taste

The attack is quite powerful with a lot of licquorice. The fruit evolves towards a slight bitterness from grapefruit. In the meantime, a salty side also emerges. Waxy!

Finish

The medium long finish is very salty and almost perfect.

Comments

This is a top Jura! Very complex and exciting.

Nase: sehr dezenter Torf, Vanille, sahnig, wuerzig, Steinobst (Pfirsich), Puderzucker
Geschmack: weich, rund, Pfirsich, salzig, hintenraus dann suesser
Finish: Torf wird deutlicher, etwas Frucht und Salz, kaum Eiche, aber schoene Wuerze

Toller Jura, normalerweise kann ich recht schlecht mit dieser Brennerei - aber der hier gefaellt mir richtig gut !

Color
Pale straw
Nose

Oha, jede Menge Klebstoff (Prittstift?), im Hintergrund PVC-Duschvorhang. Nach einer Weile auch ein wenig Frucht (Pfirsich?).  Insgesamt recht frisch und mit einer maritimen Randnote.

Taste

Wuerziger Beginn, hinten heraus malzig und leicht erdig. Nicht wirklich vielfaeltig.

Finish

Gut in der Laenge, wuerzig, ja leicht pfeffrig ausklingend.

 

Comments

Nichts Besonderes. Interessante Nase, am Gaumen recht einsilbig. Kann man, muss man aber nicht getrunken haben.
