Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Leafy bonfires in autumn. Pine logs.
Palate: Starts sweet and nutty. Development of oily, soothing, smoky flavours.
Finish: Firm, gripping, balsamic. Appetising.
Comment: Why wasn't this done years ago? More please. Captivating.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Straw-like, then immensely smoky; chimney sweep's sack, engine oil. Water calms it down, brings out lentil, sweetness, pine wood and a zestiness.
Palate: A fug of smoke. Thankfully there's a sweetness beneath and a bracken-like note to balance.
Finish: Smoke and more smoke. Tarry.
Comment: Jura's manager Michael Heads worked at Laphroaig. A coincidence? More please!
