The final Jura to try is the special Boutique Barrel Bourbon JO. Heaven knows what the XU, JI and JO mean, but it is definitively good whisky. This one matured in the moist and cool Warehouse Number 1.

The nose show typical bourbon traits such as vanilla, ginger, white pepper. The citrus is beautiful. Fresh slices of lemon and oranges, wrapped in mint and cinnamon. Soft toffee. Some white fruit emerges. Apples and pears. Continues to develop and gets better all the time.

If it were any creamier, you could spread it on a sandwich! Honeysweet with yellow fruit on syrup, like pineapple, mirabelles and apricots. Soft spices with vanilla, cinnamon and pepper. Mouthcoating like you would not believe.

The long, sweet finish allows the spices to continue their song.

Wonderful whisky that combines the best of a bourbon cask with good spirit. One of the better official Jura I have had at this point (although I must say the distillery character is conspicuously absent again).
