Isle of Jura

Isle of Jura 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A lovely aperitif.

Isle of Jura 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 For an islander Jura is often thought to be something of a lightweight, but it has hidden depths.

Isle of Jura 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 More wood-extract, or sherry, than I remember. I prefer a drier expression.

Isle of Jura 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A very restorative and comforting dram.

Isle of Jura 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 The sherry, and the balance of flavours, seem to work better in this version.

Isle of Jura 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 The perfect dram to sip on Valentine's night but I am not sure I would spare some for my sweetheart. I wish it had been bottled at a higher strength though.

Isle of Jura 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.00%
8 Classic good sherry maturation. Nothing to complain about.

Isle of Jura Boutique Barrel 1996
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.00%
7 Impressive, but you can see the joins.

Isle of Jura Boutique Barrels Bourbon J0
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.50%
7 Lost in the forest like Hansel and Gretel, but before they find the house of sweets.

Isle of Jura Boutique Barrels Bourbon XU
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.00%
7 Balanced and quite rich. Worth a look.

Isle of Jura Boutique Barrels Sherry J1
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.00%
7 Another often dismissed distillery comes out swinging.

Isle of Jura Legacy, 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Not as enticing as the older versions. Lacks depth but it has nothing to do with youth. Water kills it down.

Isle of Jura Superstition
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00%
7 It is good to have a more muscular Jura, but I find this a bit too smooth. I would prefer something less sophisticated and more sexy. Must be the size of those paps.

Isle of Jura Superstition
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00%
7 The nose is lively but the palate is put to sleep by sweetness.

Blackadder Isle of Jura 1988
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.40%
6 Nose better than palate. A tired cask?

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Celtique Connexion Vin de Paille du Jura Wood Finish 1994
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 A rich and comforting character. Complex but not complicated. To warm you up on a dull evening. Play Beethoven Symphony N°7 (second movement) and you'll be in heaven.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

The Whisky Exchange Isle of Jura 1999, 5 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 63.00%
8 Why wasn't this done years ago? More please. Captivating.

Whisky Fair Isle of Jura Cask 144
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.30%
7 A lot happening. A very lively whisky.
