- "I've always liked the idea that I've worked my way up, from knowing and doing about making whisky in 1977 to knowing every nut snd bolt in the distillery!" Thus, the distillery manager of the JURA distillery, Willie Cochrane, who has retired after 39 years of working life, summarizes his learning process. And just as this should be usus for particularly deserving managers, JURA serves him one last special bottling, just one 'on the way'. Eye / Nose: The distillery designates the shade created by adding E150a as 'mahogany honey-gold'. Looks very successful. Of course, I do not need to continue the artificial coloring and feel rather annoying, but that's all. The finish in "Pinot Noir Casks" - so to German former Spätburgender (red) wine barrels - gives the Malt a very fine, vinous, sweet-fruity aroma. One must, however, like the influence of wines in whisky. Rum pot is my first association. Pickled red fruits. With elderberry juice and some vanilla sugar and ginger tea with candy. She has a successful nose, this limited to 5,000 bottles worldwide special edition, no question. Palate: Very round and mild on the palate. Since his, probably by the final finish in the wine barrels conditional, rather moderate 47% ABV come to him well. The taste leads, as in the nose, first the Spätburgunderfluss. The fruity wine notes, however, find in the spicy oak of the barrels a good as well as suitable supplement. Even the typical Jura Brennereicharakter, which never personally appeals to me so unreservedly, is felt and not washed away, which is just the case with red wine barrels, unfortunately, more often the case. I also feel hidden smoke smells, but I rather assign the barrels. At any rate, wood and JURA bring a slightly nutty bitterness into play. All in all, the malt is pleasantly complex due to the above-mentioned components, as one might expect in this painting age, which is considered ideal by many, and the noble vine finish. Finish / Conclusion: In the finish, it flares up again briefly warm and then says goodbye rather quickly, but accompanied by a good dose of oak. Overall, the bottom line something that I have rarely found in recent years. A rock solid, good JURA. A worthy match for a relaxed and always relaxed distillery manager.
- the nose is not that great and scares off
nice red berries on the palate and finish
the Pinot Noir barrel gets through well
Cheese, this strange wine note, red berries get stronger, red haribo bear, light preserving gum
will be cute
full and strong on the palate, the alcohol tingles somewhat
very spicy, forest berries, gooseberries, blackberries a colorful mix, tannins, leather, cheese, oak comes
tart, bitter, neat red berries
Gourmand, rich. A particularly vinous nose, with hints of wild strawberries and honey. Some coolness in the background (cut grass).
Lively, zesty. The attack is frank, slightly tart, very spicy. In the mouth, the influences of the barrel are a little too much felt. It lacks subtlety in the aromas.
Subtle and sweet. The palate settles on notes of dried fruits (figs, dates) and blackberries.
- The squeezed and complexly fragrance gives way to a stunningly lively, very vigorous taste, depth, complexity and balance are attached, the finish is appropriate, generally bright and enchanting whisky, but the nose, alas, does not hold out.
Closed, wet, varnish, old furniture, raisin water, foliage, herbarium, herbal notes, dried mushrooms, mascara, paints, some mineral shades, wet roofing tin.
Thick, rich, sweet raisin notes, oak, burnt rusks, dried mushrooms, prunes, kvass wort, burnt caramel, nuts, coffee, baklava, mango, cocoa.
Spicy, warming, taste continuation, leaven wort, cola, dark beer notes, raisins, soft, spicy, slightly astringent oak, burnt rusks, coffee, tropical fruits, creamy tones, bitter chocolate.
- Best Jura I had so far in my life (and I had many).
More of this please!
- An old mature very complex top malt who has received his finish in Pinot Noir Casks!
Grapes, raisins, dark chocolate, old oak, wood;
surprisingly mild ("watery") onset, sweet ripe fruit, red wine, spicy (ginger), oily, complex;
soft sweet medium-long finish (honey?), long finish (red wine, grapes);
