    Jura Whisky 75 Proof - Clear Glass - Short Gold Screw Cap:
    Unlike any other Jura tasted, juicy fruits on the nose with a splash of minerality, crisp but also with a little weight on the nose with time. waxed apple, lemon grass, green grapes with a soft smoke which becomes more pronounced in the glass with time ending with the coastal sea breeze as it holds to the palate and finish very well.

    Jura Whisky (75° proof UK, OB, bottled +/-1979) Five stars It’s the old label that’s been then reused by the excellent and much missed Matthew Forrest. Probably distilled in the early 1960s, when the modern distillery was built (1963, I believe). Colour: straw. Nose: well, it’s another Clynelishian Jura on the nose, and rather the old Clynelish (aka Brora). Wonderful waxy notes, linseed oil, citrons, hawthorn tea, wet stones, hessian, grapefruits, menthol and ink. Brilliant ‘old coastal Highlands’ style, maybe not the most powerful ever but remember 75° proof UK means 43% vol. Excuse me? Yeah, 42.796%… Mouth: we’re even closer to the old Clynelish 12 yo cream label, what a surprise. There’s some smoke, some pepper, this big waxiness, grapefruits, various phenols (some kind of bitterish cough medicine), pinesap, a little salt, again this feeling of ink… Beautifully austere or, as I sometimes write – quite stupidly – Jansenist. Finish: medium long, more herbal but there’s always quite a lot of wax and bitter grapefruits. Comments: this is extremely different from the early official 8 and 10yos. Superb, thank you mucho Jeroen. SGP:353 - 92 points.
