Isle of Jura 22 yo 1992

Isle of Jura 22 yo 1992

Old Particular, Douglas Laing
Single malt - Islands
Bright yellow
47.9% ABV

Nose: Freshly baked bread, lemon zest, vanilla, orange peel, freshly mown grass, hints of leather.
Mouthfeel: Light body, thickens slightly, expands, turns watery.
Tasting: Sweet salty. Freshly baked bread, lemon zest, honey, vanilla, orange peel, hints of leather, hints of pomeloes.
Finish: Medium. Vanilla, freshly baked bread, honey, orange peel.


Cask 10362. A Burns Night whisky, chosen mostly at random. This whisky is cereally, slightly burnt, and fragrant. The effect is rather like standing in front of an oven where a freshly baked loaf is about to be taken out. Not just any loaf though - this one is redolent with fruit peel and sweetened with honey. Good whisky, but it's a little low in strength I think. Bottled slightly too late perhaps (but that would be carping).


I like this.
