I haven't been doing this long enough for too many nosing and tasting notes, but I can certainly give my impressions. I've tasted better whisky, for sure. But for every day, "make sure I have enough gas in the car and food in the fridge" whisky, I like this, and I will move from Origin to Superstition when this bottle is done. Then to Elixer, and then Prophecy if it's available. I like the feeling of the little distillery that could. The under dog.

And honestly, this Origin has improved in the couple of months since I opened it. I'm getting stronger oak scent now then I did at first. I like that it stands alone, among other big island distilleries that get way more (in some cases) deserving press.

God bless Jura for being not only reasonably priced, but also for being not bad value for that price. I have two other drams that may fit this value point but I have yet to try them - Tobermory and Isle of Arran. But until I taste a better value, I say Jura is worthy of our glasses.
