Isle of Jura 21 yo

43% ABV

Nose: Vanilla, orange peel, cinnamon, glace cherries, malted grains, hints of smoke. 
Mouthfeel: Light body, loose, slightly watery around the edges.

Finish: Short. Oak, vanilla, orange peel, tangerines, candied ginger, hints of smoked beef. 


Soft, citrusy and gentle... but with a sting in the tail! On the nose it's a toasty smoky note just hovering below the surface. On the tongue, it's a meaty, smoky presence, right at the end of the whisky, which reminds me of nothing so much as grilled bresaola. What's that? You haven't tried grilled bresaola? Give it a go. Crisp it up beneath the grill, put it on a baguette, with good cheddar, and a handful of rocket. That's what this whisky reminds me of, just a little.


I like this.
