Jura 29 yo 1992/2021 (47.2%, Whisky Age for Whisky Picnic Bar Taiwan, bourbon barrel, cask #836, 140 bottles) Four stars and a half

In concept, nothing ought to go unsuitable right here. What’s extra, we do additionally keep in mind that beautiful latest Talisker 10 for the Whisky Picnic Bar Taiwan. Color: white wine. Nostril: typical seawater with a bit of candy mustard, walnuts, paraffin, gorse, sandalwood, cigarette tobacco, then scoria, soot, castor oil (very previous automobile), and any previous stuff you’ll discover in an previous basement, simply, maybe, not lifeless mice. Mouth: appropriately salty and bitter at first, that’s to say fairly on brine and a few sort of resinous mustard, additionally miso soup, then bitter almonds and bitterish greens. Eggplant, artichoke, dandelion greens, grapefruit peel… End: lengthy, salty and bitter certainly, a tad unsexy however that is one thing you’ll anticipate from some typical Jura. Sooty and ashy aftertaste. Feedback: jogs my memory of some older OBs, however that is wider. A really excellent instance of the ‘harsher’ Jura fashion, maybe not for everybody, however certainly for us.

SGP:372 – 88 factors.

Color: gentle gold. Nostril: mustard and soot as soon as extra, dry Madeira, fino, inexperienced walnuts, previous instruments, engine oil, horseradish, carbon paper, brake mud, then camphor and extra inexperienced walnuts and mustard which, fairly serendipitously, would remind us of some Vin Jaune from… Jura. Reasonably round Arbois than Château-Châlon. With water: whiffs of recent French varnish (however naturellement), grass, heather, sourdough, manzanilla… What’s to not like right here?  Mouth (neat): sweeter than the 1992 – perhaps the barrel –  and fairly extra on Seville oranges and simply marmalade at first, then we discover the anticipated walnuts, touches of curry (very vin jaune certainly), salty bouillons, elderberry eau-de-vie, plus these sooty ashes. With water: geared in the direction of vegetable soups, bouillons, rooster broth, curry, cardamom, juniper… End: medium, sooty. Extra barely sweeter miso. And walnuts once more within the aftertaste. Feedback: very good, whisky jaune from the isle of Jura, shall we embrace; we have come full circle.

SGP:462 – 90 factors.

Angus has already tried this a centesimal bottling by the hyperactive Thompson Bros. Color: white wine. Nostril: fairly nearer to the 1992, with a bit of extra vegetal oils (hazelnut, sunflower) after which paraffin and plasticine, whereas some softer seafood would dance within the background (say langoustines) earlier than some straight soot would then take over. A little bit lettuce and rucola, incense, then some sweeter liqueur, maybe hibiscus? They make that in French Guyana.  A little bit melon too. Mouth: a wee tad more durable, with loads of lemon peel, certainly rucola, then putty and plasticine, inexperienced walnuts, chlorophyll, mustard, then drops of Get 27 (peppermint) and simply grass juice. End: lengthy, on marmalade and fairly inexperienced pepper this time. Very peppery aftertaste. Feedback: the nostril is great, the palate isn’t precisely a mattress of roses, however this old-schoolness stays completely great. Virtually distilled fino.

SGP:472 – 89 factors.

Grouped hearth at this time, as anticipated.
