Jura Boutique Barrel 1999 Bourbon Xu Finish Review

Jura Boutique Barrel 1999 Bourbon Xu Finish One of a few Jura whiskies that i received a sample from a friend, and really happy to have tried.

First on the list is this Jura Boutique Barrel 1999 Bourbon Xu Finish sample which was sent to me by Gal (@galg). Gal has talked about this a few times and about how the fantastic peated flavours within it are some of his favourites so i was over the moon when he offered to send me a sample to try. You can pick up a bottle from The Whisky Exchange

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Gentle sweet smoke with a touch of sea-spray and a really sweet underlying freshness, the peat is like that from passing a wood burning stove but has some like heather honey sweetness to it. The underlying sweetness comes from candied orange peel, tangerine, lemon and lime, key lime pie.

Palate

peat smoke and sweet chalk, a bit like Edinburgh Rock, with the same lemon and tangerine sweetness from edinburgh rock also.

Finish

very sweet, smooth and more edinburgh rock.
