Isle of Jura 16 Year Old (Diurachs’ Own) (70cl, 40.0%)
Nose: Fragrant, slightly floral cereal, some minerality at first, becoming increasingly creamy with a hint of orange. Mixed nuts, redcurrant, green apple and finally dark chocolate and spice.
Palate: Oily and resinous with sweet tobacco, mixed nuts, clove, milk chocolate and violet. Rich and round.
Finish: Drying, fragrant oak. After a few sips some chocolate lingers too.
Overall: The whisky of choice for the Isle of Jura’s 200 or so inhabitants.
