Isle of Jura Distillery
I have tried way to many scotches, per my wife, but what I can say about this scotch is that its a great smooth scotch which is difficult to not enjoy.
This is one of the nicest whiskies I've tried so far... I've usually gone for 10-12 year malts so was interested to see if I could taste any difference between those and a 16 year one. I think the answer is a definite yes... those extra years add both character and smoothness so if you are aiming to try something a little older and up the range... I really did enjoy this one.
Nose - dried fruits followed by caramel and vanilla with smoke but not overpowering. Palate - citrus flavours smoke and all the dried fruit and flavours one would expect from Oloroso and American White Oak casks. Finish - a well balanced malt, mixed citrus and dried fruits with of course smoke. Possibly a little over priced.
Smooth up front, with vanilla and toffee, then turns complex and smoky, with a definite sherry-tinged finish.
Kilchoman pulls it out the bag again with Sanaig, an excellent whisky at a very reasonable price point - if I blind-tasted this I would swear it was an intensely rich, deep version of Bowmore. Taste profile leans quite towards the sherry side, making this a lip-smacking sherry monster. After an hour could still taste this.
Superb value and interesting flavour from this Speyside distillery. This may be NAS scotch, but looking at the colour and from the taste and legs in the glass, I'd say this is a minimum of 8 years old.
