  3. DulischM scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A good and tasty whisky that could do with more volume %
    • Nose
      Sweet and nutty with caramel and syrup. A clear fruity note of ripe berries, raisins and red grapes. Lemongrass brings some refreshment.
    • Taste
      A bit watery in the mouth, but also fruity-sweet with raisins and slightly woody nutmeg.
    • Finish
      Fruity and vinous with overripe grapes.

    Still a little reserved on the nose, emphasis on wine and some spice with a little Jura in the background. A little more differentiated on the palate, the age is also noticeable here, but still sweet, spicy, nutty and at the same time thoroughly balanced. In the finish it sounds a bit too fast for me for age and price tag.
    All in all, a great malt with potential for discovery, but imho priced a bit too ambitiously.

  5. PRV scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Aroma of honey, caramel, sweet oriental dried fruits, "drunken" cherry, chocolate biscuit.
    Semi-dry, peppery taste. Oak viscosity turns into light bitterness. The body is oily.
    Medium-lasting aftertaste with excessive bitterness.

    the nose is not that great and scares off
    nice red berries on the palate and finish
    the Pinot Noir barrel gets through well
    • Nose
      Cheese, this strange wine note, red berries get stronger, red haribo bear, light preserving gum
      will be cute
    • Taste
      full and strong on the palate, the alcohol tingles somewhat
      very spicy, forest berries, gooseberries, blackberries a colorful mix, tannins, leather, cheese, oak comes
    • Finish
      long
      tart, bitter, neat red berries

    • Nose
      89 89
      Gourmand, rich. A particularly vinous nose, with hints of wild strawberries and honey. Some coolness in the background (cut grass).
    • Taste
      85 85
      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.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Subtle and sweet. The palate settles on notes of dried fruits (figs, dates) and blackberries.

  9. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    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.
    • Nose
      Closed, wet, varnish, old furniture, raisin water, foliage, herbarium, herbal notes, dried mushrooms, mascara, paints, some mineral shades, wet roofing tin.
    • Taste
      Thick, rich, sweet raisin notes, oak, burnt rusks, dried mushrooms, prunes, kvass wort, burnt caramel, nuts, coffee, baklava, mango, cocoa.
    • Finish
      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.

  11. schengel10 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Grapes, raisins, dark chocolate, old oak, wood;
    • Taste
      surprisingly mild ("watery") onset, sweet ripe fruit, red wine, spicy (ginger), oily, complex;
    • Finish
      soft sweet medium-long finish (honey?), long finish (red wine, grapes);

    Red fruits, black fruits. I think smiling at Hellyers Road Pinot Noir Finish, the link is obvious. Gourmand and a little sweet. Not maritime for two cents, I would never have recognized the Jura style blind. On the palate, sweet, sweet, mellow, melted (good sign of advanced age), vinous and intense!

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    • Taste

    Oreo
    Willie Cochrane started working at the Jura Distillery in 1977 as mashman. He soon became stillman to finally become the manager of the distillery. No less than 39 years has Willie worked at Jura, but all good things come to an end. Willie retired in September 2016. To celebrate the occasion, this ‘One for the Road’ was bottled, an Isle of Jura 22 Year Old that got a finish on Pinot Noir wine casks after its regular maturation on bourbon casks.
    Its nose is a lovely sweet one on almond paste, juicy raisins and pineapple cake. Freshly baked cookies. A hint of chocolate and coffee. Walnut liqueur. The white creamy filling of an Oreo. Raspberry yoghurt. A hint of jute in the background. Pleasant and creamy.
    Good body (could have been a tad more though), honeysweet and mildly sweet and sour, soft on the spices. Reminds me of pastry again, but now more an apricot pie. Nectarine. Raspberry. Fruity and sweet, but with a mild sour edge. Caramelized ginger, pear syrup. With the second sip, the wine becomes very outspoken, but the malt never turns vinous. Good!
    The finish is medium long and shows just a tad too much tannins, making me pull a face a bit.
    Lovely Jura, no more no less. I’m sure Willie is very proud of this one – and rightfully so. Around 190 EUR, which I find a tad expensive.

    "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.
