Isle Of Jura Journey Bottling Note

Journey is the entry level expression from the Isle of Jura range (which was relaunched in mid-2018). It was aged exclusively in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels and bottled at 40% ABV. A tasty introduction to Jura's single malts.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Melted butter, sugared almond, a very light hint of smoke.

Palate: Honeyed-drenched pear, toffee and pencil shavings.

Finish: Oily walnut and light apricot sweetness.

Isle Of Jura Journey Reviews

Harsh and very rough.

Awful. This has absolutely nothing going for it. Nasty, cheap and rough. Jura need to watch they don't damage their reputation with one.

10th February 2020

Wonderful complex fruity flavour.

A delicious whisky, first sip full of complex fruit flavours, with a long, smooth finish. Slightly smoky but not overpowered by this. All in all a great drink! Would definitely buy again.

1st January 2020

A dram's a dram for a that

One of those nice finds when it is discounted. Perfectly drinkable, quite sweet but with a hint of dark chocolate at the finish.

Ten year old origin so much better

Only good for hot toddies

Great single malt, lovely and smooth, very drinkable

This is a beautiful single malt. From the moment you pour yourself a glass and take a sip it is perfection. I was lucky to get this on offer today and I paid £22, but I would pay more than that. Really smooth to drink, and no burn. Nice gentle smoky taste followed by an amber aftertaste that just lingers and makes you want another sip. I recommend this is drank as single malt is supposed to be drank - no ice, and absolutely no water!

Nice whisky, nice price

I picked up a bottle of this at Morrisons for £22 expecting not too much.
But this is a solid drop, nicely balanced with a lingering complex finish.
It won't blow you away, but at this price point what will?

Bland

Honestly, i'm not sure how else you would describe this whisky - bland. The American Oak has imparted nothing (maybe the very, very slightest sweetness on the back palate), and the only note I can get on the nose is 'bread'. More reminiscent of a £10 off licence flask than a malt from a reputed distiller - really disappointed in Jura with this one. Not to discourage others from trying their other expressions, as they've generally been good. But this is garbage.

12th October 2019

Overpriced and simply bad

Taste is "soapy" and aftertaste is horrible. Definitely not worth it. Jura 10 us much better drink and only a bit more expensive.

27th September 2019

safe bet

Easy drinking and yes basically bland but inoffensive and at £22 or less from co-op there really is nothing to complain about. I actually prefer this to the one a few years ago with pine - all in all a safe bet.

1st August 2019

Not for me.

Horrid. Not pleasant neat. No better with soda water.

4th July 2019

Beautiful.

Lovely, relaxing to drink whisky... I really like this tipple... it's going down very beautifully.

A great starter whiskey.

23rd June 2019

If it ain't broken don't fix it

Proof that some things shouldn't be changed 10yr origin great whiskey journey.....not good, search for 10yr origin or 16yr diurachs own.

16th June 2019

Dont bother

NAS blandness

26th May 2019

so good value for its price.

Simple smooth whiskey which might be too bland for most complex whisky enthusiasts.

11th May 2019

Very nice

Despite negative reviews I really like this whiskey, it’s light, peaty and full of flavour.

25th April 2019

Not worth, weak body.

Its my first experience with Jura, and it is not really good. A little bit watery. High price for this quality.

18th April 2019

Harsh on the palate. Difficult to believe its a single malt. Horrible

I have never been a lover of the peaty malts, and from the description I thought this was supposed to be a little lighter on the peaty flavour. I am so disappointed. There is nothing smooth about this. It really is harsh on the palate and frankly horrible. For the £22 I paid, I could have enjoyed a smooth Jamieson blended whisky from across the water, or better still a triple distilled blended smooth Bushmills for the same money..

21st March 2019

Disappointing

First one of the new Jura range that I've bought and it's not even worth it's price. Hugely lacking in every aspect and immediately forgettable. I realise that this is the most basic expression of the range, but before it was Jura 10yo and it held it's weight, being affordable yet floral, light, welcoming and stylish (when it comes to both - taste and packaging).

This costs the same, but is not even close to old 10yo in any aspect. Looks and tastes cheap and is better avoided.

17th March 2019

Loved all previous ones but Journey is nothing what Jura is about...

Bad :(

31st December 2018

Unimpressed

Sweet but lacking anything to set it apart. No smokiness apparent and nothing to qualify as a good single malt. Very disappointed.

26th December 2018

Love this whiskey my Favourite light and fresh

Love this whiskey light fresh and great to taste has taken me away from my fav Irish.

12th November 2018

Tasteless

Not a fan.. Very weak and tasteless to be honest. I expected more from Jura.. And it's overpriced,for the quality alone its should be £25 maximum,not the hefty £35...overall very disappointed...

28th October 2018

Sweet and fruity , enjoyable and straight forward

This is a very nice whisky but more like a light sweet Speyside with no obvious peat , if you expect Isla then you will be disappointed. If you’re not keen on mental peat then you might prefer this. I like it.

12th October 2018

Poor

Not a fan.. Just really poor and it has nothing about itself to entice another drink.... Lacks flavour and weak...

2nd September 2018

My favourite at the moment

Very nice sweet whiskey with the slight smokey hint towards the end. A very nice whiskey and a good one to start on.

18th July 2018

Sweet and okay.

Jura and Islay are neighbours so I was hoping for something peaty, smoky, dirty.

This is quite sweet though - reminds me of raisins and dried fruit. I usually like Scotch with a drop or two of water - I don’t think Journey can handle it though.

It’s okay but a little one dimensional. 3* if it’s on offer, 2* if it’s full price.

For the same money I’d rather get a Talisker Skye, Bowmore No.1 or Aberlour 12 depending on what you’re after.
