Jura 18 year old, 44%
Price: $125 ● Issue: Fall 2018 ● Reviewer: Gavin Smith
Jura has introduced a new house style of ‘sweetness and smoke,' and this spent 18 years in bourbon barrels, with a finish in red wine casks. Malt, peach blossom, raspberries, vanilla, and dark chocolate on the nose. The palate offers red berries, more chocolate, cloves, and peat. Dry red wine notes in the finish, with fruity spices and black pepper.
