Nose : Lovely thick melange of dried fruits and sugar. This is a great sherry start. Some wood spices (cinnamon and nutmeg) also become evident after some time (give this one some breathing time - it's worth it). Some chocolate and marzipan notes ....

Palate: Starts with quite a wine influence, then off to orange marmalade, the spice attack is quite fierce, then it gives way to sugar, and the remains of a dark chocolate pack. mouth coating and heart warming.

Finish : Medium on dark chocolate, espresso, and spice. some wood too.

Bottom Line :

all in all , very enjoyable, and well made sherry dram. If you like anniversary expressions, and fancy boxes, this one is definitely on your to buy list. It’s also a nice opportunity to taste the now-discontinued 21 year old expression, and to maybe win a stay at the Jura lodge and visit to the Jura distillery. Had I lived in Scotland, i would have given this one a try!

This one has recently been reviewed by the chaps at whisky for everyone, so check out their notes as well.
