Whisky Reviews for Isle of Jura Turas-Mara

- Ok dram with good nose and reasonable taste. The finish unfortunately is much too dry and oaky.
- Surprisingly good PLV
Nose: Many fruits, real fruit salad with berries, apples, tropical fruits, grapes and a little dried fruit as well as vanilla with a nice balance of sweetness and acidity
Mouthfeel: gentle onset, then unfolds with time more, it is worth keeping the drop in the mouth for longer - sweet starting and then becoming increasingly dry, the barely noticeable spiciness in the nose beats through. In the nose imho Portfassdominiert sherry tones come through here more - a little nut, delicate bitterness.
Finish: Much longer than expected - spice drowns out the fruit - is there some youth perceptible? I'm not sure ... some fruit comes out the back again - but overall very dry
- Long time since I tasted such an awful whisky - glad it was a free sample - hands off!
New leather couch galore, unripe walnuts, dry hay, green fruits, vegetables
Bitter almonds, then sweet fruits, peaches, honey, little grassy, wet tobacco
Medium long, bitter sweet
Plums, blackcurrant, blackberries, cherries, honey, grapes, a fruit potpourri
Fruity, oak, strong
Great aroma - that's it then - but does not get to the 16er Jura ran.
Nevertheless good everyday dram
- A NAS Malt of Jura; good and cheap!
dark fruits (cherries, grapes, berries), port aromas, honey (sweetness), hints of vanilla;
vigorous, fruity, berries, dried fruit, port, malt, caramel, then seasoning, oak; enjoyable;
medium length finish, fruity note gradually fades away;
- 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.
- More interesting and bearable than other recent Juras, but not something I'd need to have again. Interesting development though.
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.
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.
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.
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.
- You can drink - but you do not have to, it does not hurt, but I would not buy it either
Meat broth Muff, raisins, grapes, apple, orange - more dominant - walnuts, walnut shells, slightly bitter, wood dust
Pepper, walnut, musty port, orange, raisins, bittersweet - sawdust, chopped hedge
quite dry, wood dust, nutmeg, walnut shells
