Jura 10 year old, 40%
Price: $55 ● Issue: Spring 2012 ● Reviewer: Gavin Smith
This is the first release in the distillery's new core range for the U.S. After primary maturation in bourbon barrels, the 10 year old whisky undergoes a sherry cask finish. Orange marmalade, pine nuts, white pepper, and very subtle smokiness on the nose. The palate majors in overripe Jaffa oranges, ginger, and milk chocolate. The milk chocolate darkens in the medium-length finish, with coffee grounds and warming spice.
