What they say:

An indie bottling of 21 year old Jura whisky, distilled in 1992, matured in a bourbon hogshead and bottled in February 2014 by Cadenhead with an outturn of 114 bottles. A top Island distillery and a top whisky indeed.


What I Say:

Another miniature bottling purchased and put aside for a rainy day. Over the festive period I had both reason and time to open some of these. The first was from one of my favourite Speyside distilleries  Aberlour 18 Years Old 1994 – Strictly Limited ~ 46% (Càrn Mòr), the second was this Cask end from Cadenheads from another of my favourites; Jura. This expression was matured for 21 years in an ex-Bourbon Hogshead.


Refractive gold, thick/heavy tears


Sweet cereal barley, toffee, spirit/feinty, caramel, oak wood, spicy, light, fresh linen, apricot/peach mousse, green coconut, mint/peppermint, menthol, green tea, soggy tea leaves, candlewax, toasted coconut and celery/smoked apple


Toffee, Murray Mint sweeties, light mint, creamy toffee and butterscotch, creamy vanilla and fresh coconut flesh, Sandalwood-like (slightly less perfumed), caramel, banana milkshake


Medium, drying, creamy, gently spiced, black pepper heat, cleansing and light


Unusually minty, suggestive of a slightly under-active cask, however this combines beautifully on this occasion with the toffee sweetness of Jura. The end result is a minty toffee reminiscent of Murray Mints. Incredibly smooth and creamy.
