Isle of Jura 1965 Reviews
Tasting note by Billy A
Nose: Sweet toffee and honeysuckle, with hints of honeydew melon. Some sharper noted of Granny Smith apple hide behind, balanced by waxy wood polish and soft gingerbread.
Palate: More savoury than expected from the nose, with famp leaves, forest floors and crack black pepper to start, and a darker but fruity core – raisins, baked apple with cinnamon, and singed fruit cake. Behind all of that sits a soft bed of butter toffee and nutmeg, providing a sweet and gently spicy contrast.
Finish: Fresh, fruity and spicy – apple skin, nutmeg, cinnamon, anise and leafy green herbs, fading to toffee and gently smoky barrel char.
Comment: An elegant dram, with cask influence that adds character without becoming too much. Fruity, spicy and worth spending time over.
