Nose
Leafy bonfires in autumn. Pine logs.
Palate
Starts sweet and nutty. Development of oily, soothing, smoky flavours.
Finish
Firm, gripping, balsamic. Appetising.
Comment
Why wasn't this done years ago? More please. Captivating.

Nose
Straw-like, then immensely smoky; chimney sweep's sack, engine oil. Water calms it down, brings out lentil, sweetness, pine wood and a zestiness.
Palate
A fug of smoke. Thankfully there's a sweetness beneath and a bracken-like note to balance.
Finish
Smoke and more smoke. Tarry.
Comment
Jura's manager Michael Heads worked at Laphroaig. A coincidence? More please!
