One of my prezzies on review tonight: a Jura.
Now, Jura is a distillery that I’ve never really got along that well with.
This one smells pretty special. Intense peat, rich, earthy and heavily spiced.
Bitter woodsmoke and water-damped embers.
I love the coastal aspects of this dram: tar, creels, oily water, sea air and wet wood.
Unfortunately, there’s a bit of a clash between these wonderful fresh and powerful characteristics and a slightly over-sweet caramel.
Pretty good though.
