Whisky or Whiskey

Interesting fact… Isle of Jura 16 Year Old (Diurachs' Own) whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Isle of Jura 16 Year Old (Diurachs' Own) whiskey, instead of whisky.

User Reviews of the Isle of Jura 16 Year Old (Diurachs' Own)

Takes time to appreciate...

I'm halfway down my first bottle of this. I am accustomed to the ten year old Dura as one of the whiskies I drink in some sort of rotation, and I reckon that it is a fair and pleasant drink. My first thought on opening Duirach's Own was that its colour is as little too rich and hints at caramel but that was of no consequence when I tasted my first glass. It was rich tasting and full bodied: quite a surprise after the ten year old. With each glass I recognise more about it and I am coming to quite like it and recommend it to friends. The usual price, however, is a little high for what it is and I would not normally have bought it given the range of others available to me. Fotunately I have a lovely wife who spotted the last half dozen bottles on the shelf at the local supermarket and liberated them for me at just £22 each. Now that is a good price and I have a real bargain. When that is gone I really look forward to drinking my friend's Duirach's.

Pleasant enough....

Sweet marmalade with a hint of the sea about it. Gave it a generous 3 star but a wee bit disappointing for a 16 year old especially on the finish. Worth a try but there are better drams out there for the price.

very smooth

was given a bottle last new year from a Finn who did NOT like it however I thought it was very very smooth I come from the east coast so I prefer Spey side whiskeys but this was something else the difference between 12 and 16 is not so great whether the price is worth it I am no sure I have to try more to be sure Michael Finland

What the 10 year old should be!

If this was the 10 year old and retailed at around the £30-£35 range, I would defiantly be giving it 4 and 1/2 to 5 stars. But based on price I'm giving it 3 an 1/2.

Full at 40

For a standard strength bottling this is a well rounded, warm whisky with great depth. If you can't tell the difference between this and the 10 year old standard bottling stick to cheap blended whisky!

Really good, but...

I liked it, but, being an experienced scotch drinker, I have to admit that there was nothing really special about this one. The nose is sweet, but then, the palate is bitter, opaque, too dull.

I know why it's 16 years old

It's so that it is old enough to legally have sweet sweet sex with my tastebuds.

sex in a bottle

I have not tried and so I cannot compare to the comments about it being no better than the 12 year( thought i definately will). I can say that this is a complex and well balanced scotch. Sweet fruit and vanilla in the nose, spice, citrus, chocolate, and light peat in the finish. nice medium/ heavy body, smooth. this is a winner. balance AND complexity, I consider the price reasonable for this accomplished bottle and i will definately buy it again.

Opened a bottle of this with my father on Christmas day this year (my father being a big fan of jura, and me not having tasted it before), I found it uneventful that day, however about two weeks later he poured me another dram over a conversation, and I found it to be at least twice the whiskey it was Christmas day. It's nose is at first an inviting vanilla and oaken smell that has just a whiff of smoke(no more than a highland park or Dalwinnie), that then goes into walnut, fresh cream and marzipan. It's taste carry's the vanilla of the nose, with orange juice, orange bitters, toffee, butterscotch, cinnamon, almond paste, cream tea and Jamaican ginger cake. This isn't going to blast you in the face with dried fruit like a sherry cask but very rewarding and more complicated than first seems.

Damp late afternoon cont'd:

Hint of peat most likely influenced by prior dram of pleated scotch. But that influence certainly adds to the experience.

4th December 2012

A damp late afternoon day near the ocean.

Puffs of briney sweet atmosphere. Settling into tasty notes of cherry , peat, oak, raisin, vanilla, maple..... The list goes on. This one really has got it's own thing going on.

Get a better whisky for half the price

Hardly an improvement on the standard bottling and they're charging over £40 for this. I was given a bottle and have tried to like it. A definite zesty, marmalade and citrus, chocolate and weak spice. Loaded with caramel, chill-filtered and a measly 40%. You've lost me for the moment, Jura. Sort something out.

What's the extra 6 years for?

Oh Lord no, what happend here? Nothing I'd say, there is not that much difference between this dram and the 10 year old, it's gotten a bit softer but that's it.

Fantastic

Sweet aroma, to savor slowly.

27th July 2010

A delicious beauty

In the nose a light smoke sweetly transforming into creamy marzipan. On the palate elegant vinous note, orange zest, with refreshuing sour tangs. Finish is medium to long, with a delicious orangy coating. I'd give it 9 points if it had been 43% (or even better 46%) and non chill-filtered.
