Isle of Jura 18 Year Old Bottling Note

At the peak of the Jura distillery's core range (relaunched in mid-2018) sits the Isle of Jura 18 Year Old. This expression aged in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels before enjoying a finishing period in Premier Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux barrels, imparting a rich fruitiness. Top stuff for late evening dramming.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Cinnamon, dried berries, Wine Gums, hickory.

Palate: Brandied cherries, Turkish delight, milky coffee and blackcurrant jam.

Finish: Chocolate chip cookies, a touch of hay, orange oil.

Isle of Jura 18 Year Old Reviews

Nice dram for the money.

Opened a bottle for Fathers Day, my son and I thought it was really nice, very smooth.

Oh dear - oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. What a pity. Afraid I’m with the review ‘No. Just No’ of 8 November 2018. This is the first time, ever, in many years of enjoying malt whiskies, that I’ve come across one that I really did not like – at all. Sadly, the tasting notes of ‘No. Just No’ describe this stuff all too well. Loads of very old, so old it tastes dusty, sherry – the sort of dark sweet sherry that mythical maiden aunts might keep in the bottom of a bottle, lurking in a cupboard, year after year after year – mixed up with manky old corked red wine. Why? Anyone can make a mistake, but why release your blunder and risk ruining a good name? Just knock the bung out and pour the stuff down the drain. That’s what I did with the rest of my bottle.

No. Just no.

Let me start by saying that I quite liked Jura 16. I was sad to see it go, but hearing there would be a bit more peat reek in the new line I was hopeful as I like a bit of reek in a dram. I was not certain that the "Grand Cru" red wine casks in this expression would be noticeable, but they certainly were. Sadly, that ended up being unfortunate. It creates a taste I think can best be described as if someone had pulled a prank on you by soaking red wine corks in your whisky, but only those from wine where the cork had gone off. It is very clear why other distilleries do not use red wine casks as a standard. None of the wonderful and unique spice and flavour I associate with Jura shows through here. This is also less smooth than I would expect for an 18 yo, even at the nicer 44% at which it is bottled. I try to do my research before any whisky purchases, so I rarely end up with bottles I hate. Here I did none because I liked their 16 so much. That was a mistake. I am not sure what to do with the rest of the bottle.

Very Nice, a little sweeter than I expected.

Jura is my personal favorite, the 16 “Diurach’s Own” and 21 year old expressions being tops for me and the 12 year old “Elixir” being a regular tipple for me, when I can get it.

I just tried the new 12 and 18 year old and they are a little different flavour. There is something similar to the Brooklyn in them. I like them but they have a little more sweetness than my older favorites.
