What I say

This Jura expression was Dram #3 of 2019 #WhyteChristmas twitter tasting from Whyte & Mackay and hosted by Steve @thewhiskywire

Distilled on Jura in 2006 (with its then 212 human inhabitants and matured for 13 years in ex bourbon barrels and finished in Chinkapin Oak (Quercus muehlenbergii) native to North America.

My tasting notes:

  • Appearance: Full amber gold (10/20),
  • Nose: Gnarlier, classic Jura nose-full, sweet lemon drizzle cake, chunky oak wood, yeasty beer, buttery fudge and highland toffee, salted caramel latte coffee
  • Taste: Apple, peach and pear pie dusted with cinnamon and served with salted caramel and praline sauce, white pepper spice builds, butterscotch, fudge, highland toffee and milky latte and mocha coffee linger with an after-eight or buttery Murray mint.
  • Finish: Long, chocolate, coffee, toffee and mint

Overall

Delicious! A great classic Jura expression full of coastal salinity and sweetness and that wonderfully complex toffee/latte coffee mixture and even a complimentary hint of mint present in this.

Score 86/100
