Jura 18 Years Old

jura-18yo-bottle

On paper this expression is full of great flavours but I found myself really looking for anything representative of its age. Perhaps a slightly more subdued smoke and some earthier woody spices. I feel like this one is still getting there… 84/100

Jura 12 Years Old

jura-12yo-bottle

A much cleaner presentation from Jura, certainly they have tightened up on their base bourbon cask maturation stock. I found myself wishing for a little more depth (and grime) on the palate and this is a little sweet & polished on the finish but overall a great balance and intensity. 84/100

Jura Winter Edition

Jura Winter Edition Whisky Review: A classic Jura expression, not sherried to death but the spirit is really brought to life by the addition of sherry-derived flavours complementing core Jura distillate. For me this is much more of an autmnal dram than a winter warmer due to the association with ‘bonfire night’ flavours. 87/100

Jura Two-One-Two

Jura-212

Jura Two-One-Two whisky review: 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. 86/100

Jura Seven Wood

isle-of-jura-seven-wood-whisky

Jura Seven Wood whisky review: A little disappointing, the nose seemed OK but hardly worth it after that. It was hard to place any defined flavours and the whole thing seemed quite watery/watered-down in flavour. I think my expectations were met here and this seems to be the bin-end or infinity bottle for Jura’s leftover, random and mostly worn-out casks. 77/100
