Jura 16 Years Diurachs' Own

Six more years of maturation than the standard bottling lend a lot more smoothness and complexity to this single malt. With the manifold aromas of salt and earth you can experience a complete circle of the year on Jura.

Diurachs is the Gaelic name for the inhabitants of the Isle of Jura.

Sea breeze with honey and a hint of ginger.

Layered with fruit and sweetness. One can find Demerara sugar, dark chocolate, oranges, toffee, some lemon, salt and earth.
Finish:
Pleasantly sweet and complex.

The quality of this fairly complex and engaging Single Malt from the Isle of Jura is slightly dragged down by intense coloring (E150a) and its low bottling strength of 40% ABV. Orange peel, dark fruits and toffee can be found on the nose, supplemented by heather honey, ginger and a hint of salt. Jura 16 arrives heavy, sweet and full-bodied with rich spices, bitter chocolate and well-integrated, earthy cask influence in the development. The finish is delicate, prolonged and bitter spicy. However, given the lack of intrinsic quality, this whisky is rather overpriced.

English:
Color: very weird and not natural: caramel candies- like Werther’s original or Cadbury’s (must have bin quite a lot of e-150 in it)
Nose: reminds me a field with a lot of hay and wonderful flowers. Extraordinary. Caramel, salt, vanilla, prunes, leather. Alcoholic content is perfectly hidden during the maturation process
Taste: light sweet, salty, dry Sherried, popcorn, toasted bread with butter, cloves
Finish: white chockolate, caramel, pepper, Haselnuts
Balance: tastes a lot better than it smells. A delicious stinker ;-)
88/100

Deutsch:
Farbe: sehr merkwürdig und unnatürlich, wie Karamell-Bonbons (sicherlich viel Zuckerkolör)
Nase: Viel Heu und schönen Blumen. Unglaublich. Karamell, Salz, Vanille, getrocknete Pflaumen, Leder. Mann merkt fast gar kein Alkohol - der Whisky ist so schön lang gelagert.
Geschmack: leicht süß, leicht salzig, Mann merkt getrockenen Sherry, Popcorn, Buttertoast, Nelken
Finnisch: Weißeschokolade, Karamell, Pfeffer, Haselnüsse
