I completely agree with Jamie H's review....very nice, but I think I would buy Aberlour or Glenmorangie again over this.

Very smooth and easy to drink, I would try any whisky with a few spots of water for comparisons purposes and have found in many cases it brings out more aromas, in this case it just ripped the taste out of it. A top quality whisky highly recommended on it's own!

I have tried dozens of single malts over the years and the 10 years old Jura remains my favorite. As a matter of fact that is the only whiskey I drink for the last several years. I keep other single malts for the house guests and offer Jura only to very close friends.

LOVE IT i've tried many malts all a little different and unique...cant fault this one tho you should try superstition as well,but be warned....its VERY easy to drink !!

Really the peaty smell is obnoxious it's great in taste style and surpasses all other scotches,it's magic with tast and marvellous in aroma

Out of the fifty or so different whisky’s I’ve tried so far this is the only one I couldn’t drink. It does have a very unique flavour to it but unfortunately it is not one that I could appreciate.

For the price there is nothing wrong with this whiskey at all yes you could pay a little more and buy a JW black label which is better. However if you are really going to pay more go for the Jura 16 year old you will not be disappointed and worth every penny for the experience

My review of 7th May 11 was a little harsh. My taste in single malts has moved away from Islay's and I'm now beginning to appreciate the sweet, honeyed tones of this whisky. So much so, in fact, that I've just ordered a bottle of 16 year old to compare !

Easy enough to drink and wasn't disappointed (especially for the price). Probably won't buy another bottle though. Aberlour 10yo a much better option.

Im pretty new to whisky in general, but I have tried a good few of the mainstream single malts i.e Glenfiddich, Penderyn, Glenmorangie etc, and I have to say this far out guns most single malts in this price range. YOU CANT GO WRONG WITH THIS! Beautiful on the nose, very smooth and has a great depth of flavours.

jura is bit too strong tasting for me and putting ice with it seems to turn it to a rude smelling peat - bit of warm water vastly improves it bringing out the sweet honey.

My favorite 'drinking' Whisky. £21.95 here is an excellent price as I've just paid £29.95 for a bottle! (a downfall of living in the Inner Hebrides lol). If you like this then move up a grade to Superstition - I'm on a quest to sample many more Jura expressions (and live 500 metres from the Ledaig distillery!)

Firstly great value for your cash £20 not bad! easy drinking lovely sweet nose ,honey, slight salt,citus fruits and a wiff of summer breezz. A good starting point for any up and cumming Whisky buff.

Good, warming, nice after taste, with a heavenly nose

I tried Jura 10 year old single malt for the first time today and found a whisky which has a good nose and an accessable and subtle flavour taken straight.
Add a drop of water and other pleasurable aspects develope.
Honey after-taste, though with a somewhat short finish.
Overall however, a very good dram!

Hmmmmm, is 'bland' too strong a word for this tipple? Ok, i take it back, how about 'uninteresting'. Sorry. Agree with anonymous, 11th Nov '10 - "I've tried at least 50 different kinds of whiskey so far and this is the only one I can't say anything good about".

I'm a lover of rare and high end malts especially Mortlach and Aberlour.... I've just bought a bottle of this Jura 10yo and find it absolutely unique: Heather, Honey and Coffee Beans on the nose with a light and very well balanced arrival, white pepper and parchment phase with a tobacco and flint finish. Citrus, honey,tobacco and coffee beans linger... Anybody who doesn't enjoy this is clearly entitled to their tastes and opinions.... more left for those who appreciate it.

Those who speak with anonimoty obviously don't want to defend their review, some must think the job of tasting is to be a critic. Found out about Jura while whiskey shopping, I asked questions and read the updated Scotch Whiskey Bible. Niether were critical so I purchased and must say enjoyed the subtle differences from other single malts, different isn't worse or better it's just different. An enjoyable adventure.
