I really like Jura, I like the uniqueness of the esoteric brand and it being the only whisky from this smilalarly enigmatic island. I have tried several bottles this year and have found the 10 yo consistently enjoyable. I thought I'd try this 21 yo 200th year anniversary bottling expecting something exceptional for a bottle over £100.

This is a lovely whisky no doubt, the nose offers a deep and sweet, syrupy fruit salad aroma laced with light mocha and melon.

The arrival is a bit undefined, at first I'm finding seaweed, pears, ginger more syrup, and and then a fairly forgettable finish.... Just fades to nothing.. Leaves a feeling of thick syrupy fruit salad.

I really don't see how distillers can have special or commemorative offerings that are not as cask strength: whisky enthusiasts like most of us here know our stuff and this just feels like a bottling for dare I say it whisky tourists... Not good enough.
