Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Very light peat smoke, but also some sherryish sweetness.
Palate: Smooth. Waxy. Piney, honeyish. Developing sweet creaminess. Opens very slowly.
Finish: Salty, with a surprising sting.
Comment: It is good to have a more muscular Jura, but I find this a bit too smooth. I would prefer something less sophisticated and more sexy. Must be the size of those paps.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Heathery with hints of hard Highland toffee, wet bracken, smoke, date, chocolate-covered raisins. Water brings polished oak, nuts and heather blossom.
Palate: Soft, with an immediate puff of heathery smoke playing alongside toffee, crisp malt. Good balance and weight.
Finish: Lightly smoky.
Comment: The smoke gives extra character to the often slightly rigid Jura style. Great price too!
