  1. ScotchGuyTO scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    I'm not usually a fan of Jura's individual releases, but this is heart and fruit with the right dose of peat and smoke.  The nose doesn't sell it for me, but the palate is where this malt shines.
    • Nose
      The sherry almost covers the malt in the nose.  It's a little overwhelming...

      Sherry soaked dates, raisins, ash and peat creosote.  Tobacco and some hint of citrus.
    • Taste
      The palate is another thing entirely. The spirit takes firm grasp, smoke and embers emerge in the palate, more fruity cherry pits and date squares.
    • Finish
      As it moves to the finish the peat and oak spice push through, raspberry flan and almost tea tree oil. Cigar ash and tobacco.

  2. schengel10 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Again an excellent "Tastival", this time matured in different sherry barrels! Unfortunately, NAS, still a top malt!
    • Nose
      heavy sherry, dark fruits, sweetness, English marmalade;
    • Taste
      enormously sweet onset, lots of sherry, then oranges, raisins, honey, a lot of cocoa, getting dry;
    • Finish
      soft medium-long finish, in the end Sherry;

  5. Mannix65 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    little complex, one-dimensional and rather boring
    • Nose
      Soap, caraway, anise, in the background dried exotic fruits, fermented tea
    • Taste
      Caraway, cloves, oak
    • Finish
      short, dry, bitter

    • Nose
      sehr fruchtig mit Aromen von Banane, Mango, Karamell, Marzipan, Vanille, Getreide und einem Hauch Koriander
    • Taste
      lieblich und vollmundig; leicht ölig, diverse Frucht- und Weinnoten, Marzipan und Sultaninen im Vordergrund
    • Finish
      lang, warm, lieblich; ein Hauch Lakritz 

  8. hs305 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    [June, 2016]  I had this dram during a "Feis Ile 2016" tasting at Bonn.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My
    notes state a nice modern style sherry profile.

  9. The-Man-best-Friend scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Great bottling, the various barrels are there and the spirit of Jura appears in the nose, in the taste and the finish. Euro 110.- (Anno 04/2017) are OK, for Euro 80.- it would be a top deal to buy.
