      N: 19, P: 20, F:19, B: 20. Maize corn colour. Nice mild aroma of fruit, herbs and citrus. Very gentle, ladies-pleasing taste, with some sour fruits. Very quaffable but not enough character. Had it a tasting.

      Sweet oak and that subtle Jura smoke. Earthy palate, with an oddly less-than-stellar nose. Overall a decent dram, but the subtleties start to veer in the wrong direction. I’ll take the 10 or Jura Journey at half the price over this one. (AT)

      Got Wood? Yup. Bourbon Barrels? Yup. Wine barrels? Yup, yup. Whiskey Barrels, you know it! All sounds spectacular, but is it?? On the nose: some floral notes strike first. Followed by a note of vanilla spice, leather, and a touch of honey. Green grape with Oak come in at the end. On the palate: Chocolate and spice. A soft palate with a little kick; sea salt and coffee opens the show with chocolate being the main event. - taste of Oak and Pine make an appearance. The feel is rich, but lighter than that of other Jura offerings. It coats the mouth nicely, but doesn’t last long. The finish returns some salt and light vanilla, but doesn’t stick around. Bottom line: Jura has a lot of controversy from its fan- you either love it or hate it.Some bottles are great, others forget about it. I respect that they try new and different things, but this bottle is forgettable in my opinion. Some unique offerings yes, but far too light and nothing memorable IMO. Give it a try if you want to quiz your palate, but I think Jura has better variations to offer in their 10&12 year.

      Not as peaty as the Jura 10 a bit of a bite and a pleasantly lasting after taste.

      My questions are: Why? Did we need to mix this many barrels? Was the name and idea a marketing gimmick that someone really thought was supposed to create something special? It all supports previous assumptions that over-blending and mixing of young and/or lower quality, especially when paired with various random finishes, will always be a sum equal to its parts. The amount of places this goes and how quickly it goes really gets distracting. Vanilla, ginger, hot plastic, sawdust. Finishes quick with lemon rinds, brine, and a bitterness (bitter coffee?) that isn't pleasant. There's an overall "funk," but I'm still not sure if the various woodd fighting each other for space or just lower quality whisky. It's not hot from a lack of maturity. I'm lost. I find it close to Springbank 10, where I almost like or dislike it every other sip.
