Prima whisky with everything he needs to have.

- Definitely aromatic the highlight of the unpeated Jura range with age. Still, it wouldn't be worth 100 euros to me. Still, a nicely matured malt, with edges and dense aromas.
a lot more is happening here. The whisky looks much livelier than the 18. Orange peel, a little mustiness, oak, malt, fruit, some menthol freshness. Looks a little out of date, a bit old-fashioned, unfortunately also a little bit of wet cardboard / cleaning rags from time to time, which always comes out when the Jura is not peated, I suspect. I don't have any smoke, but the nose is fun.
it has astonishingly bite, fresh and mouth-filling, light-colored fruits, oak, the right portion of bitterness, stimulates saliva.
the freshness persists, menthol, fruitiness, a bit of oak bitterness but rather minty elements. Orange peel, dark chocolate.
- A very complex and old malt, a beautifully sweet, but still refreshing fruitiness meets a lot of vanilla.
At the beginning there are some light fruits, grapes and some of these sweet cocktail cherries on the nose, citrus notes and orange with a hint of cinnamon can also be recognized. Then it becomes grassy, spicy, fresh, which I cannot describe exactly. Somewhat dark berries and subtle baked apples appear before the whisky turns nuttier with milk chocolate, caramel and toffee.
In the mouth again green grapes, here too cherries and a berry-like, subtle acidity. Spicy old oak and dry cinnamon are being replaced by sweet vanilla and lightly caramelized nuts (possibly walnuts).
The finish vanilla and fruity, maybe. with morello cherries. A little spice and after a while a slight syrup will appear.
Very typical and complex Jura that comes at first oily and heavy. Walnut oil, marzipan a dash of mint and then the typical ferns accompanied by wet soil, undergrowth and soft smoke. In the background following more and more fruity aromas of dried figs, fruit compote but also sherry, chocolate with rum raisins, softwood and salted caramel. Really beautifull!
Firm and earthy at the start. Maybe even slightly peaty. Gradually, we then nuttier with sherry, bracken, jute, dark chocolate, fine smoke and a hint of pepper. In addition, metallic accents, candied orange, soaked black cherries and caramel.
Long, beautifully oily, aromatic and complex. The sherry struggles with bitter orange marmalade, soil and smoke on the upper hand.
