  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 59 points Moderator

    Long time since I tasted such an awful whisky - glad it was a free sample - hands off!
    • Nose
      59 59
      New leather couch galore, unripe walnuts, dry hay, green fruits, vegetables
    • Taste
      60 60
      Bitter almonds, then sweet fruits, peaches, honey, little grassy, wet tobacco
    • Finish
      58 58
      Medium long, bitter sweet

  2. Martin1965 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      88 88
      Plums, blackcurrant, blackberries, cherries, honey, grapes, a fruit potpourri
    • Taste
      84 84
      Fruity, oak, strong
    • Finish
      86 86
      medium

      Great aroma - that's it then - but does not get to the 16er Jura ran.
      Nevertheless good everyday dram

  3. schengel10 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    A NAS Malt of Jura; good and cheap!
    • Nose
      dark fruits (cherries, grapes, berries), port aromas, honey (sweetness), hints of vanilla;
    • Taste
      vigorous, fruity, berries, dried fruit, port, malt, caramel, then seasoning, oak; enjoyable;
    • Finish
      medium length finish, fruity note gradually fades away;

  4. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The nose I think not bad. The taste is then rather towards drinking whisky. You can drink it right next to it. However, I do not need something like that.

  5. Totoro scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    More interesting and bearable than other recent Juras, but not something I'd need to have again. Interesting development though.
    • Nose
      Leathery and dusty-dry up front, with a yeasty edge. Some winey fruits (apricots and tinned tangerines) and burnt caramel. Overly dried rooibos tea and nutmeg.
    • Taste
      Lactic, even a bit cheesy. Musty as well. Cherry liqueur. Pleasant acidity, but a thin mouthfeel. Goes from sweet-and-sour to spicy and even a bit salty (the coastal influence), so the development in itself is certainly respectable (and perhaps down to the many different cask types involved here). Still, it's a bit insubstantial.
    • Finish
      Fuzzy-dry afterglow, a bit musty and cardboardy. Overbrewed tea. An idea of sea salt.

    Aroma: burnt caramel, brown cane sugar, malt sweetness, creamy notes, sweet raisins and dried apricots, berry jam, fragrant hay, inclusions of coniferous resin and lacquered wood, red-hot walnut, pickle.

    Taste: caramel, sweet dried apricots, honey, nuts, a little dried ginger, orange jam.

    Finish: medium duration, bitter-sweet, honey-grass, wood tannins.

    Rating: 82

    The result: a sweet dessert dessert, a little more interesting than the base 10, wine barrels added a little more overtones, the main degree of flavor, some taste too simple and lightweight turned out to be, but then pleased with a rather pleasant and relatively long finish for such a small fortress.

  8. dRambo scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    You can drink - but you do not have to, it does not hurt, but I would not buy it either
    • Nose
      79 79
      Meat broth Muff, raisins, grapes, apple, orange - more dominant - walnuts, walnut shells, slightly bitter, wood dust
    • Taste
      75 75
      Pepper, walnut, musty port, orange, raisins, bittersweet - sawdust, chopped hedge
    • Finish
      78 78
      quite dry, wood dust, nutmeg, walnut shells

    • Nose
      79 79
      Meat broth muff, raisins, grapes, apple, orange - more dominant - walnuts, walnut shells, slightly bitter, wood dust, baking cocoa
    • Taste
      75 75
      Pepper, walnut, musty port, orange, raisins, bittersweet - sawdust, chopped hedge
    • Finish
      78 78
      quite tart, wood dust, nutmeg, walnut shells - in the finish bissl sprittig

  10. Myst111 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    He would have expected something more complex due to the numerous finishes. But due to the price, you can assume that was saved here at the maturity. Nevertheless, a whisky with a very good price for money.
    • Nose
      91 91
      The port barrel is dominant, but also mango and tropical fruits are clear to me. In the background a little vanilla and cinnamon
    • Taste
      88 88
      Again port and tropical fruits, some cereals in the background
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium to long:
      Here the young age makes itself namable. Wood, minimal metallic, but again port, sweet and fruity with some dark chocolate
