Jura 1997 Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice 46%


Jura from GM.

Testing / Tasting


Jura is the only distillery located on the Isle of Jura, but it seems that I’ve had already time to write about it (eg. A visit to the Isle of Jura, The Isle of Jura Boutique Barrels, Jura Origin 10 yo, Jura 16 yo Diurachs’ Own). Certainly distillery and island itself are worth a visit.
Okay … but what we have today?
It is Jura Vintage 1997/2012 from Gordon & MacPhail, a series of Connoisseurs Choice, bottled with 46% ABV, no coloring or chillfiltration.

K: white wine;

N: malty, with vanilla, honey, traces of Werther’s Original, and further soaked raisins, after a while I have a gentle irritation in the nose, white pepper, a bit of lemon, then maybe even a little ash, generally all pretty quickly evaporates and remains in hiding;

S: light sparking on the tongue is felt from the very beginning, something a little peaty, from fruits I have a grapefruit, a touch of lemon, generally quite dry, but not particularly rich;

F:  medium long, dry, perhaps with elements of peat.

Score: 79.

Jura 1997 Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice turns out to be quite calm and quiet. I expected something more comprehensive and rich. It seems to me that the whisky could still have spend some more time in barrels.
