After reading some of the reviews on here and other forums I wasn't sure what to expect with this 10yo Jura Whisky. I tried a dram in a bar recently and was surprised and really pleased with this offering. I've been looking for a casual/mid week dram and after trying a couple of Bourbons recently (one of which I ended pouring half the bottle down the sink, just continued to disappoint) I'm quietly pleased I've found this Jura and bought a bottle.
I'm well aware others have not had good experiences but mine has only been positive. On the nose I'm getting malted and honeyed coffee beans with light floral and white pepper notes. Neat the arrival is light and silky, really well balanced with a distinct three-phased experience: Light heather and caramel, followed by white pepper, smoke and then a leather and sort of flinty finish. I'm also getting cigar tobacco, parchment and citrus aftertastes with coffee beans.
I would rate this well above HP 12, or Balvenie Double Wood as an entry level dram.
This to me has a unique taste and something about the water in it. Highly recommended.
