Distillery/Brand: Isle of Jura
Colour: Old Sauternes
So here’s the ridiculously hard to pronounce (and even harder to spell) Diurachs’ Own 16 year old. Another trademark syrupy offering from Jura.
Nose: The thick Oloroso sherry comes screaming through on the back of toasted almonds, thick chocolate fudge and dark woody caramel. Mixed in with cereal milk and a seasoning of cloves and cherries the nose leaves little doubt to its’ ancestry.
Palate: Thick and syrupy with tangy dark chocolate giving way to a briny rock salt and pepper combination. It’s a struggle if you ask me.
Finish: Cloyingly oily with spicy clove.
Another one dimensional ‘I knew what to expect’ dram from this predictable distillery.
