Dram Review: Isle of Jura 1977

Jura Fortnight continues with this dram I was sent by Tom Thomson of Tom’s whisky reviews. 35 year old Jura and a bit of a cracker!

Here are the dramstats:

jura1977

 

  • ABV 46%
  • Distilled 1977
  • Price £693

Nose: Carrot cake, vanilla Mr Whippy ice cream, rich tea biscuit, mint, pineapple cubes and liquorice. Excellent!

Palate: Huge pineapple, grapefruit, oak, spices, liquorice all sorts, coconut mushrooms.

Finish: Wow, pineapple and grapefuit lilt goes on and on with layers of oak wood. Definitely not too woody. Just awesome.

Verdict: I love it! Of course it goes without saying that at nearly £700 I will never even consider buying it. But it does taste wonderful.
