The label says it’s been profoundly peated whatever that means. Sounds like marketing claptrap to me, but lets see what it’s really like.
There is something really different and dare I say it profound about the nose on this malt, and it’s not exactly peaty. It’s more like a slightly burnt fruit cake, rich sweet molasses, slightly smoky, and fruity, but the intensity is superb.
On the palate it's full bodied and in quite a different class from anything I’ve sampled from this distillery before. Slightly smoky, toasty even, softly peaty with some pine, cocoa and coffee compete in a really delicious mouthful. Quite a sweet finish, not overly long but lingering bitter chocolate make it very satisfying.
The first Jura I would heartily recommend, not exactly a peat monster but the peating (profound or otherwise) has brought a lot of toasty rich sweetness that make this a really tasty dram.
