  3. Gweddry scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    It smells interesting, but the taste is the exact opposite, flat and uninteresting as well as the reverberation.

      syrup, sharper, flatter, smoke, honey with chili, coffee, sherry, bitter,
    • Finish
      boiled vegetables, light smoke, sherry, dog

  4. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    One of the better - former - Jura standard bottlings with fewer off notes (Jura cheesiness) and a very complementing amount of smoke. "Heavily peated" for a Jura, mind you. Would not spend 40 EUR for this NAS, but is decent, for what it is.

    A solid offering, I think the peat helps a lot. I’m not necessarily sad it’s discontinued as it wouldn’t be a terribly frequent buy, but if Jura does have future releases on the peatier side I’ll definitely seek them out.

  7. Abadon05 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Interesting nose, but that's it. Very flat in the taste and finish.

  8. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Classy whisky, very rich, vibrant, whole, perfectly balanced, with elaborate details, a wide palette of derivatives, strong, captivating, a wonderful combination of smoky peat and fruit and sherry foundations.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, juicy notes of peat and smoke, charred branches, smoked fish, unexpectedly raisins, sweet creamy shades, tropical fruits, everything is very soft, round.
    • Taste
      Powerful, rich, sweet peat, smoky raisins, ash, creamy notes, dried grapes, burnt oak, fried nuts, tobacco, leather goods, cocoa, dark chocolate, candied fruit from tropical fruits, peat, cola again, beer caramel motifs.
    • Finish
      Soft, refreshing, peat, tropical fruits, orange peels, mint, eucalyptus, spicy oak, raisins, cola, smoke, nuts.

  9. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful, maritime smoker. Will be pretty dry in the end, but the smoke and tobacco note is really nice in the end.
    • Nose
      First, a rather youthful peat note, but it quickly vanishes. The whisky is now clearly full in the nose. Peat, without being killed by the peat, sweet, possibly sherry, harbor, a bit dirty, salt and sewing machine oil. A great, slightly more complex smoker's nose.
    • Taste
      pleasant drinking, but still good start. First salt, then peat, then pepper, with some oak and a subtle sweetness.
    • Finish
      Pepper, and quite a bit. Then peat and smoke notes, dry oak.
