Hello Scotch lovers,
this Wednesday, we look at the Seven Wood from Jura.
This new addition to Jura’s signature range is crafted with a combination of seven cask types: American white oak ex-bourbon, Vosges, Jupilles, Les Bertranges, Allier, Tronçais, and Limousin barrels.
The nose opens with light peach and a hint of smoke. The palate is balanced with a great depth of flavour; notes of liquorice and candied orange emerge before a subtle smoke descends in the finish.
Nose: Perfumed notes of summer meadows lead into chocolate-covered raisins and rich, creamy oats. Hints of menthol follow, accompanied a mixture of red jams: strawberry and raspberry. Weightier dried fruit notes build, accompanied by a hint of something fresher and more tropical.
Palate: Rich and creamy, with coffee and chocolate initially swamped by toasted spice notes: cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper. Crunchy apples and pears roll in along with freshly squeezed oranges and their zest.
Finish: Mint chocolate notes linger on the palate, with apple skin and a touch of creamy coffee.
