We tasted Isle of Jura 21 Year at Meeting No. 30 on November 20, 2014. We rated it very highly at 3.23 out of 5. Isle of Jura 21 Year ranks 15th overall in Scotch. At a street price of $160, this spirit is expensive given the our rating of it.
Spicy nose. Palate is complex, alluring continues to develop. Very wonderful!
Vanilla with a little chocolate. I could drink it easily on a regular basis. Consistent from front to back.
Golden mahogany. Scents of cleaning supplies. Wow, the taste is underscored by a spicy tobacco. Smells similar to a Japanese single malt - oily. Coating of the mouth.
Slight, flowery smell. Heavy, nutty flavor, like chewing on a cashew. Water brings it in sharper, but with fast drop off from the tongue.
Smelly of plastics or band-aids. Flat on the tongue, lacking depth and character. With water, nose bursts with sweetness, palate turns smokey and peaty. Finish tastes like dead flies.
