The Isle of Jura Origin is the reincarnation of their standard 10 Year Old. But you know as well as I that batches can vary significantly and the last time I tried this one was in 2010. Seeing that I will be trying a few Jura today, I felt it was a smart thing to do start with this entry level malt again.

The nose has a heart of malt, with some earthy notes around it. Nevertheless it is quite sweet. Think honey, oranges and caramel. Soft salty edge. Quite fruity. Apple sauce?

It arrives softly on the palate, mildly spicy with a touch of salty. A bit drying. The fruit does not get a lot of room to move about. Aniseed? Nuts, for sure. It becomes a bit spirity, which I do not like so much. Towards the end, it becomes a bit sour too.

The finish is long, with salt and pepper that subdue the sweetness even further.

Oh, well… it remains one of the least interesting Jura I have tasted so far.
