Jura / Royal Mile Whiskies

Jura (Young Peaty Jura - RMW) Review

I don't plan to look back at previously tasted whiskies unless like this one i find my tasting notes.

The Young Peaty Jura was a 1999 distilation, released in 2004 so is only 5 years old and is heavily peated, one of only 336 bottles.

The recommendation on the www.royalmilewhiskies.com website was enough for me to want it and boy am I glad I got hold of one.

For 58.4% ABV it's remarkably unfirey.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

very Islay (Arbeg, Lagavulin or Laphroaig like) with great wafts of smoke and peat, which leaves an almost antiseptic feel in the nose but it's definately not overpowering.

Palate

The Taste begins almost as expected with huge waves of smoke but a soft smooth texture, unbelievable for an almost 60% whisky. The Taste has a very earthy mouth feel and is extremely easy to drink.

Finish

As the initial taste fades a warm trace down through you follows, similar to a Lemsip when you have the cold. it's very warm and inviting.
