I really don't know how people can like this. It has a muddy taste, and while quite smooth it just doesn't exhibit any of the flavours indicated by the distillery. No spice, no toffee, just something akin to dirty water. Just for reference I LOVE Balvenie 17yo Dbl wood, even the 12yo has many more pleasing characteristics to Jura.
It is the best to those I drinked.Smooth and you can drink it without ice
Already a fan of the Jura 10yr, Elixir and Superstition with the 16yr on my extensive wishlist, I was delighted to find the 35cl size discontinued and less than half price at the supermarket! Sweet, spicy and full of flavour, even at full price it's good value.
I have tried the 10 year old and that’s not bad by any means but this is a beautiful whiskey. You can taste the sweetness if you hold it on your tongue for a moment; I found it better with a little water brings out the full flavour of the whiskey.
Purchased this whisky (75cl) in Chicago. It is bottled at 43% ABV. A slightly higher strength for export? Yes, an Orange brandy character with much spice on the palate. 3/4 drops of water in 1.5 ounces of Jura brings rich honey sweetness. I love the body, a little buttery. Maybe a faint smoke. Maybe it's the wood I sense? I enjoyed the 10, but this has much more of everything! $65 is great price for this wonderful whisky.
Hint hint hint - give it 46% ABV !
Firstly a light smoke, then a warming marzipan transforming into an orange liquor. Oily palate confirms its orangy opulence. A pity that not a 43 or 46% alc.Not as much complex as eg. Highland Park 18YO, but still a great fresh
