  1. talyn256 did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Not your typical sherry bomb - there's clearly a lot of cask influence but the sherry hasn't imparted chocolatey/nutty notes; it's much more a wine-laden affair with floral and herby high notes, complemented by the oak spice of thirty years in the barrel.

    Rich, comforting, satisfying and different enough to be interesting without being weird or unbalanced. Big brother approves - nice work, Jura.
    • Nose
      Herbal, spicy and syrupy. Cola cubes, floral dessert wine, banana loaf, juicy sultanas and dusty oak.
    • Taste
      Deep, dark caramelised sugars - very reminiscent of spiced rum. Thick and luscious with more fruit and spice - cinnamon, raisins, nutmeg and ginger.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet, and spicy with drying oak.

    Tasting Notes by Jura;

    Rare and richly aromatic with hints of mulled wine, ginger and banana cake.

    Thirty years in the making, this exquisite limited edition single malt is all about taking things slow, aged in American white oak, Amoroso and Apostoles Oloroso sherry butts casks. Some say patience is rewarded hints of honey and vanilla, while others enjoy ripe pineapple, bitter chocolate and morello cherries – after all, who says there’s only one version of the truth?
