Jura 21, previously discontinued in 2009, it’s great to see Isle of Jura 21 Year Old back and in award-winning form. An explosion of soft citrus fruits, yet spicy and warm, a great whisky at a lovely price for this age.
Nose: Full and fragrant. Notes of toffee and fudge, a touch of vanilla with a spread of sweet nuts. There are honeyed notes creeping in with tones Tokaji and port.
Palate: Good body with notes of winter cake, damson jam, marzipan and an uprising of cooked fruit with winter spice and fudge.
Finish: Medium-length with notes of chewy oak tannins.
