Jura Heavy Peated 1999/2006

by Oliver Klimek on September 9, 2009

An unusual vintage bottling – 58%


My Tasting Notes

Nose: Very smoky, camp fire, smoked bacon, a slight fruitiness is noticable
Palate: Strong peat, some pepper, a bit sweet, with water citrus notes emerge.
Finish: Long and smoky.
Overall: A great young peat monster that doesn’t have to hide behind its cousins from Islay.

Score: 91/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

I guess this is from the same orinigal spirit, but the boutique botting was re-casked in 2006 according to http://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/feature/Isle_of_Jura_Boutique_Barrels.aspx
