Member Ratings and Notes
Ries
 

n: lemon merengue pie, smoked salt, and torched citrus peel. This has a a copious amount of dried citrus and dry wood smoke with a nice touch of buttercream and plum.

 

t: follows nose with full amount of lemon citrus wax with the peat smoke following quickly behind that for a delicious blend of contrasting flavours that come together nicely. Nice robust oak character and the high ABV makes this a dense and delicious whisky. Finish is ashy and more oak char. Nice whisky, probably the best Jura I have tasted. I really enjoyed the high strength ABV.

 

Adding water brings out the smoke but dampens the warm citrus.

Stale wine, stagnant water in a rusty tin pail, anise and damp earth.

Trail mix and brown fruit. Very salty. Taste like swallowing beach water.
