    Very balanced nose, wood and fruit, then the influence of bourbon casks is felt. Sponge cake, vanilla, a trickle of smoke. The palate is very good, it's warm, stewed apricots, quince jam, smoked tea, but the finish is a little acidic.

    Already matured, but that certain something is missing.

      Strawberry juice, sour to slightly sparkling, chocolate, oak, dryness

      Chocolate, sweet, light bitter, dry cheeks

    Just not my style of whisky

    • Taste
      Lightly peated, oaly, petrol lamp, dark fruits, caramel
    • Finish
      Slightly bitter peat, vanilla sweetness at the end

    N- Gentle and rounded. Bread crumb, fresh yoghurt, clove and chocolate. Embrace with a thin layer of fine sweet smoke. P- Fresh youghurt sourness bring forward delicious maraachino cherry,
    honey and sweet fig. Whiff of fine leather and seasoned wood added depth
    to the overall mouthfeel.

    T- Smooth and medium long, tabacco leaf and light peppery hot remains.
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    Okayish but would not become my favorite Jura.
    • Nose
      Old leather suit case, minerals, stone, oaky notes with sweetness and oaky and nutty notes
    • Taste
      Punchy, oak wood, still a bit leathery, subtle sweetness and vanilla notes, again some minerals, a tad bitter from the oak
    • Finish
      Medium and burning, little bitterness

    The nose is pretty mineral as a Jura should be. The palate is is different - rather vanilla and oak.

  10. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Wood=malt sweet
    T: Wood vanillas
    F: More woody vanillas with some raisins on the finish
    C: Benign but boring.
