Isle of Jura 1973 30 Year Old cask 3155

A 30 years old Isle of Jura 1973 matured in an oloroso cask from the renowned Gonzalez Byass bodegas in Jerez de la Frontera.

Jura 30 yo 1973 (55%, OB 2003, cask 3155, 468 btl.)

Nose: big notes of cigar boxes mixed with quite some wine and camphor. Interesting. Dried fruits. Makes me think more of Port wine than of sherry. Hints of mint.

Mouth: too much wood which means the fruity side of the sherry gets drowned. Rum / raisins. Notes of nutmeg and ginger. It shows nice coastal notes (iodine)? Getting quite resinous and slightly bitter, on Seville oranges.

Finish: dry and winey with some salty liquorice.

This Jura is interestingly different but a tad too old. The palate is too oaky for my taste and can’t match the otherwise attractive nose.
