2.5 out of 5 stars
Nose - sour apple, peach, lemon zest, honey, dry grass, floral notes, malty grain, sweet vanilla, subtle cinnamon, moderate ethanol burn.
Taste - honey, chocolate, sour apple, tannic dry grass, cereal grain, lemon zest, peach, hint of caramel, floral notes, moderate to high alcohol bite, finishing fast with mostly sour fruit, bitter grassy, floral, and hot young alcohol flavors.
While I find this to be reasonably serviceable, I’m not very impressed. Some aspects of the nose and palate are nice, but the fruit is too sour, the grass is too bitter, and it generally does not integrate the components very well. It would probably be improved with more time in the barrel.

Side-by-side tasting review of a three sample pack - Jura 10 Origin, Jura Superstition and Jura 16Yr (Diurachs). Haven’t heard glowing reviews for this distillery but I got the three-pack sample for a measly $5 so I figured, why not. Here we go!
Sample one of three
Nose - brash, youthful ethanol. My very whiskey-novice friend described the nose this way “it singed my nose”. I did get soft notes of citrus, caramel, and light vanilla.
Palate - malted caramel. Rough alcohol edges. More citrus and vanilla. A lot of rough edges on this one
A little water and time in the glass brings out more vanilla & caramel. Bourbon cask on full display. Finish is short. Overall, forgettable. Side-by-side score = 3 of 3.
