This is a lightly peated Jura, which i would say is pretty similarly aged to the 10, and it tasted very much like that. But its an improvement.

  • Nose: reasonably phenolic peat, pepper, quite an oily nose, bit of floral and a bit of bread dough, yeasty beer the next day and if the Origin has tequila, then this has mezcal. After maybe 10 minutes the phenols disappear, it’s still peaty but loses its pungent-ness. With water honey, floral and bread dough, complexity gone.

  • Pallet: toffee, honey, very clean smooth liquid, little bit of smoke, some cocoa and milk chocolate, delicate floral notes as well. With water thin, still has good body milk chocolate hangs around and the bread dough comes through in the back end. It’s ever so slightly spicy as well.

  • Finish: nothing in particular really perhaps the honey hangs around a bit longer. With water ever so slightly floral perhaps, very gentle, there just isn’t much there.

  • Mark neat -7.8, with water – 7.8.
