Jura Heavy Peated Edition (For Asian Market)
During my recent visit to Jura whisky we were lucky enough to get to try, at the distillery, some of this wonderful Heavy Peated Edition.
We were told this was bottled specifically for the Asian market, we believe China and this was the only one left at the distillery, which I was lucky enough to be allowed to pour some into a sample bottle to bring home for a proper evaluation.
Seriously smoky but gentle at the same time this is lovely and more vegetal that I thought it would be, lots of honey sweetness hiding but lots of up front smoke chalk and dusty veg, if you find a bottle let me know i really want a full bottle of this.
A big waft of earthy gentle smoke that intertwines with some chalkiness and edges of sweet gentle tinned fruit syrup ... It's very easy going despite being heavily Peated
Oh wow huge earthy smoky peatiness here with splatterings of dusty honey glazed vegetables
Earthy smoky honey glazed chalk covered vegetables
