Jura ‘Two-One-Two’ 13, 2006-2019, American White Oak Barrels, 47.5%

It’s not often that I try whisky from the Isle of Jura (distillery). From the early onset of my whisky fanaticism I’ve not held much love for Jura. In some cases I figured I had to get over that and … Continue reading

Isle of Jura 14, 1995-2010, Refill Bourbon Barrel 3199, 57.8% – Gordon & MacPhail

Ah, the infamous Isle of Jura distillery. On the island of ‘one’. One road, one town, one way there, one hotel, one distillery, one million deer. I was there in 2018. We were on the street across from the distillery … Continue reading

Jura 8, 1970s bottling, 40%

Jura doesn’t really have a great reputation nowadays, and every time a good one pops up it’s an exception instead of a rule. Quite a shame since it’s a rather pretty distillery. Within my group of friends we often call … Continue reading

Jura One and All, 21yo, 51%

Let’s get this out: I generally think of Jura as my second least favorite distillery in Scotland. The number one spot is taken by Abhainn Dearg. Somehow, I decided to give them another chance two years ago when this one … Continue reading

Jura 21, 44%

Jura is not one of my favorite distilleries. I got hugely turned off of them by some official 10 year old bottling from about a decade ago, and they’ve not been able to sway me back since. I know they’re … Continue reading

Wrapping up the Advent Calendar from Drinks by the Dram

So, I stared well with that Advent Calendar blogging. Then the Blind Tasting Competition started and that took over. I tried blogging twice per day but that was just too time consuming. Catching up with a massive blog post and … Continue reading

Whisky Advent Calendar, days 13 to 19…

So, I suddenly stopped blogging about the Whisky Advent Calendar from Drinks by the Dram / Master of Malt. This didn’t happen for nothing. I am also the editor-in-chief of our whisky club’s magazine, De Kiln. It’s a quarterly publication, … Continue reading

Blind Tasting Competition day 13: Isle of Jura 1988, 51.2% – The Whiskyman for Sweden

Where yesterday saw me scoring for guessing the correct distillery, today saw me staying just clear of zero points based on a wild ABV guess. Just for the sake of completeness. After 13 days, you can technically have 1300 points. … Continue reading

Jura 18, 1992-2010, 52.8% – Duncan Taylor Rare Auld

Thank goodness they still exist! Jura bottlings from indie bottlers that are not heavily peated! I have been trying to get hold of a good Jura bottling without any peat in it, but it seems I’ve missed my moment when … Continue reading

Jura 18, 1966-1984, 46% – Cadenhead

About two months ago a guy from our club posted a picture of a supposedly awesome Jura on Facebook. I don’t have much experience with Jura, mostly because a lot of not-so-nice whisky comes from there, and most affordable indies … Continue reading
