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.

Jura Journey Reviews

Nice, plenty of characters, a little rough here and there.

Nose: fresh cut damp timber, fruity pastry, also something dry underneath.
Palate: pear drops, hint of aniseed, echos of coffee, occasionally harsh.
Finish: long, dry oak saw dust, a little cigar, longer still.

very good at pricepoint

first taste straight out of bottle was a little wersh as many whiskies can be. a little air and a teaspoon of o2 and its transformed. it took many years to make so give it a little time in the glass.
stone fruits and nuts in this; a bit of charred oak too. quite decent now and for price a very good whisky.. stars relate to quality at price

Hmm...not what I expected

I have enjoyed sampling a wide range of whiskys in the last few years and often follow the tasting notes on this web page as a great baseline. I have however found it difficult to enjoy the Jura Journey. I took to looking through some of the reviews here and unfortunately agree with the few who have found it 'harsh' and 'bitter'. I wonder if there is some variability in this entry level expression. I have had better Jura whiskys.

A good whisky for the price

I've had a few bottles of this now (over a long period of time, not just today!) and I must say that it's an interesting bottle. I pick up on the nose and tasting notes mentioned above as well as what jura say on their website, depending on where I am on the bottle. Generally speaking, jura website description for the forst 3rd, the MoM description for the rest - keeps it interesting. Better whiskies? Definitely but at this price, this jura is one of the best without age expression (with some water)

Strange spread

Reading the reviews I can only guess that there is a bit of a lottery going on here with the bottles. The bottle we drank (and enjoyed) was a buttery caramel treat. Not one to take loads of time over but very drinkable indeed.

Disappointing

Quite bitter, unpleasant without adding water. Wouldn’t buy it again. Main plus point is it’s not very nice so you won’t overdo it

Very calm, but plain and faceless

It's worth the money but not interesting at all.
If could be very good for a party when your need something to knock you out, cuz it's easy-drinking one with no heavy bits.
For 23-25 it's a good true-ish whisky. No smell, almost no taste, and no aftertaste.

Disappointed, more like a light liquor

Underwhelming

Nice, sweet, easy-drinking budget whisky.

Got given a bottle of this as a gift and I liked it a lot more than I expected to. Nice, sweet, easy-drinking single malt. Absolutely nothing to complain about at this price and will probably pick a bottle up at some point if I see it on offer, just to keep me away from the more expensive whiskies in my cupboard.

Great whisky

For €23, this is a bargain as it tastes like it should be more expensive. Of course there are better whiskies, but I for one can't justify spending so much for a premium bottle more than once per year. Tastes better with a splash of spring water (fountain near to my house)
