    A really pleasant, fruity, spicy whisky. A little bit of maritime, chocolaty, rumumnoten.
    Overall, we ended up with the taste of homemade Rumkugeln!
    Very tasty again!

  5. Defeatless scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Earthy, farmy, muddy, grassy. These things are all in here. Beside that there is a smell of cow stable and so. It is just like walking around on a farm. Rather odd, but nice. There is also some wet cardboard and dust note in here which is not uncommon in Jura's.

    Taste:
    Grassy, dusty, wet cardboard, And then some tropical fruit. Marzipan, pineapple, green apples, and honey.

    Body:
    medium. a bit oily.

    Finish:
    Medium.  There is a dirty side on it. But I like it. It is the equivalent of the smell. Besides there is again the fruity note and it closes of with the cardboard.

    Price:
    Current pricing is quite fair

    Presentation:
    sober, decent and all the info you need.
