Jura 10 Year Old Reviews
Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Nose: Proper Scottish porridge – a pinch of salt and rich oats – stirred through with a spoon of decadently sweet Strawberry jam and sprinkled with raisins.
Palate: Creamy and chocolatey, with the porridge of the nose dusted with cocoa. Soft spice builds – cardamom and cinnamon – with rich hot chocolate and squashed raisins following.
Finish: Fruity dark chocolate fades to reveal apple and a touch of liquorice.

Great whisky, full bodied with a hint of smoke, immensely easy to drink and enjoyable.
A nice smooth single Malt for those who want an easy going drink, but I was expecting more. It lacks somewhat on the wow-factor and is a little too plain in my opinion. From the scent, through the sip to the aftertaste nothing seems to change and no new flavours develop or appear.
I had high hopes for this one as it follows on from the amazing Jura Origin 10 year old... but sadly this one was so bad I couldn't finish the glass! Please Jura go back to what you do best.
I was a fan of the Jura origin which is no loner available. This is still fairly mild on the peaty, smokey notes but its there enough to make it interesting. Leaves a nice slightly spicy feeling on the lips and is quite warming on the way down. If youre after something easy drinking to suit all palates, not too light or too peaty this should fit the bill. I love it!
Was looking forward to the subtle flavors shining through. I was hoping for a mellow taste with low peat after taste to stand out and take notice. The overall experience of my first taste gave me that hope that will forever stand in my taste buds as just that. The peat is mild compared to others in the same class of single malts. I also purchased at the same time the 18 yr but have not opened it to give a review but will in the near future. I give it four stars today in hopes that future bottling's remain as adverse but subtle in taste as I have come to appreciate in the finer bottling's of single malts.
First impression had nice peatiness on the nose, but a rather uninteresting mix of brown sugar and spices. I was originally unimpressed with this Jura 10 (only 3 stars), but after deciding to give it one last shot, I noticed interesting chocolate and other flavors that I hadn't before. Probably the biggest disappointment about this single malt is that I feel like I paid too much for something only decent. But it was worth giving it a few tries. Jura seems to be a well regarded island disillery. I definitely have Seven Wood in mind to try next.
