Tasting notes Serge Valentin: 91 points (Whiskyfun.com)

A distillate, some barrels, and thirty good years. Aaahhh…

Colour: gold.

Nose: no obvious re-racking, rather some fresh-cut grass, walnut peels, a metallic touch (copper), then ale and bread, gingerbread, a touch of earth, moist pipe tobacco, cigars… I find this very elegant, just the opposite of a contemporary pushy whisky. With water: a Cognacqy side, notes of bone-dry Madeira wine, a newly-opened box of Cubans, and just a marvellous earthiness. Fantastic nose once reduced down to +/-45% vol.

Mouth (neat): yess, lovely. It’s kept some of Jura’s leathery wackiness, including these metallic and Marmite-y notes indeed, but it’s also achieved balance, with a rather perfect spiciness, between cloves (very Jura) and nutmeg, with bitter oranges mounting guard. With water: yes, salt and mustard! And Madeira sauce, cigars, bitter oranges…

Finish: long, mustardy, dry, rather perfect. Bags of walnuts in the long aftertaste.

Comments: perhaps the best fairly recent Jura I’ve tried since, what, 2015? I mean, my favourite; I’m sorry, Mother. Now, the price is north of 700€…
