our tasting notes

Nose

Look for dark chocolate, floral grains and orange citrus. Before long dry spice savoury nuts and apple take over. Concluding with a delicious salty minerality, owing to the seaside aging.

Taste

Despite the huge nose - prepare for a subtle elegant mouth feel. Candied nuts, spicy stewed fruits and ginger bread spice are the dominant notes - but when warmed in hand for briefly the whisky opens greatly.

Finish

The whisky concludes brilliantly with notes of oaky syrup, earthiness and salt lasting.

about

Throwing distance from Islay (and you can taste it), Jura provides some of Scotland's most unique spirits, benefiting from the coastal environment. While less committed to the heavy peat common with Islay, it's clearly an influence in this whisky. With earthy, smoke blending with sherry perfectly.

The 30-mile-long and seven-mile-wide island is framed by the wild waters of the Atlantic on its west coast, while the east is home to serene bays, seals and sea eagles. Journey to the north west of Jura and you’ll be meet the rugged coastline of the island home, where there is nowhere wilder than The Corryvreckan, a giant whirlpool as beautiful as it is dangerous.

This is one of the nicest whiskies I've tried so far...

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.
