Whisky Focus - Jura Winter Edition Review

Jura Winter Edition Review

21st December 2020
Review of the new Jura Winter Edition.

Jura Winter EditionI thought I would take a look at the Jura Winter Edition for those of you who may be looking for a last minute Christmas whisky gift for a friend or relative or even for yourself to dram over the festive season.

The second release in a new cask finish series from Jura, it was launched this autumn, the Jura Winter Edition is available here in the UK from Tesco supermarkets where it is currently on offer for 30 which appears to be good value considering it is a 1 litre bottle, but is it?

A no age statement whisky which was initially matured in American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels and then finished in hand-selected Spanish sherry casks.

The the Jura Winter Edition is bottled at 40% ABV and as I said above it comes in a 1 litre bottle and can be found in Tesco supermarkets.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Aromas of orange citrus, raisin and sultana; creamy caramel fudge.

Taste: Unmistakably Jura, sweet vanilla toffee which is quickly joined by the delicious sherried fruits, raisins and sultanas, a touch of cherry, a little dry oaky spice. It becomes more orangey and toffee'd after a few mouthfuls.

Finish: Medium to long length, vanilla, some grape, touch of cinnamon, bit of cherry and oak.

Comment: A cracking dram from the Isle of Jura and at a fantastic price. I have grabbed myself a couple of bottles to stick away in the cupboard. For the price I can highly recommend it if you are looking for a whisky gift that wont break the bank.

SMW Whisky Score 86/100

You will also find the current Jura core range as well as some limited release bottlings available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
