SMWS 31.29 - Summer palette of bright colours


Destilleri:Isle of Jura
Uafhængig aftapper:SMWS - Scottish Malt Whisky Society


Omtalt i Outturn januar 2015:

The nose evoked a summer palette of bright, welcoming colours – yellow (jasmine tea, pine, buttercups, banana split), green (herbal, leafy) and red (raspberry jam, glacé cherries. Deeper notes slowly emerged – tea-chests, old books, fence preservative and sandalwood incense. Water took us back to flower meadows, gardens and hedgerows – then deeper again (rolling tobacco, leather, antique shops, toffee, beeswax). The palate had good viscous textures and spicy sweetness (liquorice, nutmeg, clove, sherry-soaked raisins, cinder toffee, manuka, oak staves, nuts). In reduction, lip-smacking and moreish – buttery pastry, creamy vanilla and floral perfumes all combined to create a toothsome and tingling ‘Yes please!’ experience.
