Jura Signature Series Seven Wood
This Jura Seven Wood from the recently announced signature series from Jura i've seen described as the Jura equivalent of Dalmores King Alexander III.
An interesting dram, lots of inriguing notes and complexity, but feels a little on the watery side and i really think a higher ABV would have made this into a top dram.
much more of an oaky note on the nose than any of the others in this range and a dry ness to the finish that is reminscent of tannic red wine. The palate has some nice flavours of milk chocolate and fruits along with a tannic metallic note that i think the lower abv brings out and a higher abv would have hidden more behind the fruit.
For those that like the King Alexander II or who liked the One and All i think will like this a lot, for me it's a bit too tame and watery and needs a little extra ABV to add punch to it.
Soon to be available, I believe early April, from specialists such as Robert Graham, Royal Mile Whiskies, The Whisky Exchange or Master of Malt
Thanks to Scott from Whyte and Mackay who let me sample these fine drams.
The first thing that hits me is a definite oaky note, furniture polish and a hint of mahogany, manuka honey and heather honey, juicy fruits, cherries and blackberries, hob nob biscuits, quite winey, fruity, and difficult to pull out exact fruits.
Dried fruit and nut mix, hints of raisin and dried coconut, cashew nuts and dried banana, milk chocolate covered hob nobs, drying and a touch metallic.
Quite dry, hints of oak and dried coconut.
