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:
- 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.
