10 YEAR OLD SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY FROM THE ISLE OF JURA.

THIS IS THE CHEAPEST I'VE EVER SEEN IT !!!

DELICIOUSLY DELICATE YET ROBUST.

THE DIURACHS ISLE OF JURA SINGLE MALT.

LIVE A LIFE LESS ORDINARY.

BECOME A DIURACH.

Diurachs is the Gaelic word for the people of Jura. Less than 200 strong but united by their love for the island and its whisky.

One taste of our precious malt and we suspect you might feel the same.

Become an honorary Diurach and eventually all the secrets of the island will be revealed. The can be no greater enticement. Your first on an unforgettable journey is to visit isleofjura.com

IN A WORLD OF ITS OWN.

Nestled off the west coast of Scotland, the Isle of Jura is a place rich in legend yet shrouded in mystery. A place where good fortune holds a bewitching grip over the islanders, and the three highly distinctive Paps of Jura cast a long and foreboding shadow over the landscape. A magical haven where a sense of solitude is all pervading: one road, one distillery, one community. There is no whisky and no island quite like Jura. It truly is in a world of its own.

Origin is the 10 year old that started the Jura odyssey. It carries the traditional Celtic symbol for birth, beginning and the forces of nature. It tells of a passion rekindled, a distillery reborn and a remarkable whisky forged by turbulent seas and windswept landscapes. For the people of Jura, Origin is, without question, the water of life.

Slumbering for a full decade in quiet contentment, this beguiling spirit has a lingering taste of warming gentle oak, caramel, soft liquorice and roasted coffee beans. To be leisurely savoured.

I wrote all that myself :-)

I am no expert but this is one of the better whiskies that I have bought, well worth £16 notes.
I've not tried Famous Grouse Malt yet, so I cannot compare it for you.
Jura is a very smooth whisky that is easy on the pallate, similar to Glenmorangie.

Cheers! :thumbsup: I'm not a regular whiskey drinker but I do like Laphroaig, then again every time I've had it I've already had a few beers! Perhaps this would be good for keeping in the house for special occasions (like when I get a chance for a drink! :oops:)

This is one of my favourite malts, not quite as peaty as the Islay ones. Very easy drinking. Nice find, hope I can find it in stock.
#9
This is also available for about £20 in Asda.

To my mind, it's nowhere near as tasty as the really smoky ones (Ardbeg and Laphroaig) but it's still very pleasant. Because it's not as peaty as Ardbeg and Laphroaig, it's a much more accessible single malt but it still has much more to it than Speyside whiskies.

All in all, a very nice introduction to good quality single malts for people who want to move up from Bells / Whyte & MacKay / Grouse.
#10
Its not a bad malt I go through quite a bit of it as its regularly discounted. This is the cheapest I've seen it in a while. Think asda are doing it a little more expensive at the moment.

Doesn't compare to the likes of talisker or laphroig or lagavulin etc. But far ahead of Glen Morangie, Glenfiddich etc.

To my palate anyway, hot deal I'll be picking some up today.

Whiskey = Irish.

Whisky = Scottish.

;-)

After several years of sampling :w00t: I've decided that I like Aberlour the best, a Speyside single malt. It's all down to personal taste though.

:-D

Stop asking what it tastes like and go and buy it! You can't ask people if its any good or not and expect a definitive answer - some people will like it and some won't. It's personal choice and there's dozens and dozens of readily available malts to choose from - each with it's own unique taste.

Imagine putting 20 different chocolates in front of 200 women and asking each of them which is the best. Or getting 200 men to decide which car they prefer from Audi, Bmw, Merc, Lexus or Jag. The only way to tell if you'll like it is try it.

If you like it great. If you dont - just keep drinking it - you still wont like it but you wont care anymore and you will have forgotten whether you liked it or not in the morning.

Good luck with that! :whistling:
#17
Think I'll give this one a try.

Quite like my peaty ones, Lagavuli 16y, and Bowmore 16y, but trying to get into a few others.

Highland Park is the pick of the 'supermarket' whiskies for me. Some of the stuff from specialists is out of this world. I got a 1990 Rosebank (lowland) for Christmas. It's spectacular, but there's not much left :-(

Bushmill 700ml was £10 in my Tesco yesterday - not marked as special offer, but presumably a short-term price match with Asda.

I like Singleton - a malt, but quite smooth, not as distinctive as some of the others.
#20
all this is nonsense surely the only question is- DOES IT COME IN BIG BOTTLES ?

Ahh I was going to ask that as well, 70cl for just over £16 is a bargain for any single malt!!

As I said I'm not an expert on whisky or whiskey but you learn something new every day! :oops:

£17 in Asda today. Another option if you haven't got a Tesco nearby.

had a bottle of hghland park thought that was decent - currently working my way through a bottle of bunnahabhain

Most people go down the Peaty, Earthy, Smoky and full bodied whisky route.

Jura is the opposite, its light, smooth, fruity, easy to drink and has a great sweet after taste. It's an excellent whisky, the polar opposite to an epic whisky like Ardbeg.

I always have a bottle of Jura and a bottle of Ardbeg in at all times as they are both at the top of their game with different classifications of whisky flavouring.

I myself like spicy, fairly peaty, almost smokey whiskys and love Ardbeg, belvanie and glendronach, but Jura is easily at the top of the pile for me. Superb.
#29
Relative new comer to whisky, currently got 4 diff glenfiddichs and a glenmorangie on the go (fav the 14yr old rich oak which was bargain £20 in sainsburys few weeks back). anyway. Snuck a bottle of this in the trolley when wife wasn't looking, just tried it and it's very nice to my taste.
But like wine, everyones pallet is different, this is very smooth and easy to drink like someone else said.

Be a great scotch for newcomers to see what they like and to break them in

Hot hot, might get another bottle for backup
#30
oh, and the bottle looks cool ;)
#31
Still a few more days to run on this :)
#32
Picked some up last night but can't have any because I'm driving in the morning. :cry:

Eventually had chance to have some last night and really enjoyed it. :thumbsup:
