Jura 39¾ Review

Jura 39 and 3/4 One of a few Jura whiskies that i received a sample from a friend, and really happy to have tried.

This sample was sent to me by Adrian (@mynameisgone) who took part in the The Whisky Wire's (@thewhiskywire & www.thewhiskywire.com) Jura tweet tasting for the 50th anniversary of the re-opening of the distillery. Unfortuanately I was not selected for this tweet tasting, and Adrian was kind enough to share with me a little of his samples of the two whiskies on this tasting that i had not previously had, and for that i will be eternally grateful.

This dram is the Jura 39¾ which is a preview of the Jura 40 Year Old which will be released in 2014.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

sweet sherried dried fruits, raisins, sultanas and some dried apricots with crushed mixed nuts, a definite brazil nut influence, there's a tiny hint of sweet caramel and peanut brittle.

Palate

sweet sherried fruits raisins and apricots, caramel sauce and a hint of those crushed mixed nuts once again.

Finish

the fruits and caramel keep on going.
