Customer Rating

Softly smoky and packed with rich fruit flavour, Jura 18 sits at the top of the Jura range. Aged for 18 years in bourbon casks before a finish in red wine casks, this carefully balances the distillery's soft smoke with weighty flavours from the casks.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose:

      Creamy vanilla yoghurt with hints of hazelnut to start. A soft mineral note builds from underneath, pairing with sweet spiced bread, orange peel, brown sugar and white pepper. Toffee and milk chocolate truffle peek out at the end.

    • Palate:

      Soft spice grows, pushing its way through sponge cake and orchard fruit. Gentle notes of barrel char provide a background of smokiness, which builds over time. The smoke is balanced by dried fruit, dark chocolate and candied lemon.

    • Finish:

      The char lingers, with spiced studded orange peel and chocolate notes growing and then fading.

    Compared to other single malts, this is quite harsh on the palate. I had expected much smoother.

    Unexciting, I was disappointed by this really.

    Very smooth and sweet with just the slightest hint of smoke. A very nice whisky but maybe not for fans of the other, classic Jura entries that have the liquid campfire appeal.

    I enjoyed the 16 year old which has been sadly discontinued. Unfortunately, this is no substitute. No hint of the characteristic Jura spice and floral taste that I've enjoyed previously. This is a none too smooth whisky with off tastes of red wine cork. A horrendous release from a name I typically trust.
