Jura 12 years old (Single Malt Scotch Whisky)

Tasting Notes: Jura Elixir Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Vital Stats: The Jura Elixir Single Malt comes in at 80 proof, and is sold in a 700 ml bottle. Aged for 12 years, and distilled in Jura, Scotland, the Elixir is finished in American white oak and sherry casks. The bottle sells online for approximately $50.

Appearance: To start off with, I’ve got to say, I love the way the bottle looks. Jura found a great design balance that to me is both contemporary without falling down the slippery slope into tackiness. I particularly like the raised emblem placed on the front center of the bottle (a unique feature implemented in the design of many – though not all – of Jura’s offerings). As for the whisky itself, it’s a nice, rich amber in the glass, with thin, slow legs.

Nose: You can smell the sherry cask that the whisky was finished in… a sweet nose, with, yes, hints of sherry, as well as cherry and honeysuckle.

Palate: Really quite lovely. The palate starts sweet and fruity; a hint of overripe melon and a bit of blackberry. There’s a bit of spice there as well – cracked black pepper and clove – but neither the sweetness nor the spiciness becomes overbearing. It fades to the back of the mouth in a smooth transition, lingering briefly on the sweet end of the spectrum before leaving the palate with nearly no bitter aftertaste.
