Isle Of Jura Journey Reviews

Better than I expected

After having read quite a few negative, and pretentious, reviews about this whisky I wasn't expecting to be pleasantly surprised on sipping a first dram as it is in fact a solid, subtly delicious and satisfying scotch.

Tea

It tastes like tea...or malted milk biscuits dipped into tea. It's drinkable but it gets a bit cloying. Needs more oak.

Great for a gift.

I read the reviews after buying it for a gift. I'm not a whisky drinker but it was great for a gift for someone who's going on a journey. I won't let the reviews stop me from buying it again as I'm not giving it to whisky not whiskey snobs.

Harsh

Lacking in flavour and borderline undrinkable until it’s a squash like consistency with water. Avoid

Just not nice

I have been drinking whisky for about a year. I have tried many different whiskys from cheap Aldi's ones to 100 pound whiskys. This is the first ive come across that i just do not like. Im no Connoisseurs. But this Is just not nice. Not much going on with the flavour, the nose is very poor like paint stripper. Just not my cup tea. Not a whisky to start with if you are new to this.

Change isn't always better

Used to be a fan of Jura's previous range....diurachs own was an absolute delight. However their signature range no longer hits the mark.

Pretty decent island malt

Not a bad drink at all for the value. Very lightly smoked. Good option if you want to transition to more peaty whiskeys. Would ignore most of the bad feedback. Especially the guy who wrote the 92000 word review below :) the 'mault' guy, the 'chivers' regal guy

Great value single malt

£22 well spent at the coop, some of the comments on here about headaches taste etc you should stick to drinking tea. Whiskey snobbery I'd just not clever.

Pleasant as a change

I usually go for lighter Speyside, and a non peaty whisky. This is a good one for me as a change from the usual. Certainly will get again. Whisky drinking/ appreciation depends on the mood you're in.

A very poor Single Mault. A real dissapointment.

I bought a 20cl presentation box of Jury Journey that also contained a small bottle of Scottish farm beer along with a rather strange looking whisky glass. The beer was chronic - I don't want to name the beer as it was obvious that a lot of time and work went into creating this beer. Drinking Jura Journey out of the glass that was provided with the whisky was a painful experience. You have to tilt the glass at different angle as you drink out of it. The silly shape of the glass took away what little joy there was in drinking this rather poor whisky. The only other whisky glass I like to drink out of is my treasured square Jack Daniels Whisky Glass. Not sure why I like it, possibly because I enjoyed the bottle that it came with so much - good memories of that evening. Now back to the Journey. Sadly I was very disappointed in this single island malt. To be fare, my first taste in whisky tends towards the Islay range of single malts but my taste is also quite eclectic. Now, to understand the reasons for my comments about the Journey, I have to take you on a journey in its own rite. But first, to let you in on a secret, the only highland malt I will drink is the Macallan 18 Year Old Triple Cask Whisky. Then, for having a good evening with friends who have never tasted whisky before, it must be Chivers Regal. I won't keep this whisky in the house because it is so smooth with such a great mix of flavours that spreads right across all the taste-buds and reverberates down the throat, I get through this whisky too quickly - and especially if I am working the following day trouble lies ahead. A delight to swirl around the mouth and allowed to evaporate at it's own pace. Totally unique for a blended whisky, here, usually a very pleasant evening is had by all. But for serious whisky drinking friends, out comes a bottle of 15 year old Bruichladdich single malt - not the dearest whisky around, but what I consider to be the best. And this whisky takes us into a completely different dimension. This evening of literally pouring over a 15 year old Bruichladdich can be grossly enhanced when I can get my Islay friends to send me a bag of Islay peat to burn on the fire and a bottle of water taken from a natural spring on Octomore Farm on Islay - Just needs a little still water to be added to release all the esters and flavours. Never heard of anyone poaching water before? You have now. Now back to Jura Journey - such a disappointment totally flat with only a burning sensation up the sides of the tongue . I would rather head for a Lowland Malt which I won't even discuss. Now leaving aside these entry level single malts - try instead a very good quality blend such as Islay Mist which is a blend of Laphroaig along with Speyside malts, might be too heavy for all the guests’ taste, just add a little more still water - no ice. Spar used to sell their version of an Islay based deluxe blended whiskey, another excellent purchase, don't know if they still sell it. Now back to Jura Journey again. With all the brilliant whiskys distilled on Islay and Jura, this whisky was certainly a serious disappointment. And finally, although rarely mentioned in your reviews and what gives Islay malt it's unique flavour, is the varying degrees of the taste of iodine which Jura Journey does not have in any way whatsoever. Such a great disappointment. Might as well drink a Bells or Jonny Walker Red Label, two whiskys that are only worth drinking when adding a mixer along with plenty of ice.
