Jura 10 YO
Jura 10 YO, 40 %
Here is the second product in the new Signature Series from Jura. Again representing a brand new house style from the distillery. I have previously reviewed the Jura Journey.
The Jura 10 Year Old is matured in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels with a finish in aged Oloroso Sherry casks.
Please note that this is not the same product as the old Jura 10 YO origin.
You can buy the new Jura 10 YO in Norway at NOK 550 (10328401), and in the UK at around GBP 38.
Nose: Deeper and richer than Journey. The smoke is definitely more noticeable. Hints of toasted oak, coffee and warm ashes. Strawberries and vanilla. Mild spices. Vague sherry notes in the back.
Taste: Medium body and creamy mouthfeel. Pepper, vanilla, cinnamon and toasted oak.Lightly fruity, with notes of apples and orange zest.
Finish: Medium long finish. Not much development, but it is consistent and sticks to its guns to the very last.
Comments: A solid and well-crafted 10 YO Scotch.
