Jura The Road

One of a series of five releases from Isle of Jura for the Travel Retail market. The Road is firstly matured in American oak casks, and is then moved over to casks that previously held 20 year old Pedro Ximénez sherry. Unlikely to have been named after the Cormac McCarthy book.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Spiced rum with a hint of pineapple, slightly grassy at points, dense malt loaf.

Palate Gingerbread, milk chocolate and hints of sultana.

Finish Lasting cinnamon warmth and a touch of oily walnut.

Reviews for Jura The Road
Tasteful value
Nose: Sharp orange peels, dark berries, brown sugar, light earthiness and a trip in the forest in the Autumn, peat.

Palate: Caramel, sultana, gingerbread.

Finish: Lasting cinnamon and pepper, oily but also dry nuts.

I like it... Reminds me of the Jura Turas-Mara, the best Jura whisky I've ever tried.

Nostalgia for the old range
This is a really nice single malt.

And now, my rant...

The Origins 10yo was a light, refreshing, spritely piece of joy. Then, there was the Elixir 12yo, which was rich, bold and fruity. The Superstition had that light peatiness, which formed a painters palate, against which all the sweet notes could contrast. That smokiness deepened and became so much more rich, in the Diurach's Own 16yo, and finally, for the big peat fans, their was the iodine rich, seaweed and salt, of the Prophecy.

...and then they binned all that and released two ranges that seem identical, to me.

It's all good...

...but I mourn the variety of the old range.

Excellent smooth whisky.
Lovely and smooth. Will be buying another one. If you like Glencogne, Glenlivet, Dalwhinnie you like this one. Best Jura to date.

Excellent but would like a shade more peat.
I had a dream of this at the distillery last week. I’ve never been a fan of the distillery and hadn’t intended to buy a bottle. This changed my mind. A lovely smooth whisky with just enough peat to take the sweetness off the sherry finish.

Never have been a great fan of the ten yr old, I was instantly won over as the first sip hit my palate during my visit to the distillery. Now up in the top three of my list.
Having tasted far too little at a tasting, my first impression was of a velvety, smooth whisky, which transfered effortlessly from tongue to throat leaving behind a notion of bagpipes and castanets. The finish, I recall, left me wanting more.
