What's the normal selling price?

its normally 26 quid a bottle.

I was going to get one from Sainsburys tomorrow as they are 20% off so I guess that would take it down to 21 quid.

This is a lovely drop, and shouldn't be mentioned in the same sentence as famous grouse! :)

Seems a good deal to me then - have a hot!

I tell thee this is a fantastic single malt, quite peaty but smooth. It's one of those where you should leave the bottle in the kitchen when drinking as you watch telly, otherwise it will disappear too quickly.

Wow, glad I checked hotukd this morning, one of my favourites (love the peaty whiskys) and a bargain price.
#12
My father-in-law grew up in the house next to the distillery on Jura so this is his favourite tipple! Might pick him up a bottle and offer to help him drain it!! Good price. H&R

This stuff is far better than jack mate. Jack to me just tastes far too sweet.

Had a glass of this last night to unwind. Its normally on offer at one supermarket or another and normally discounted to this price. For the money it can't be beat, unless Laphroig is on discount somewhere lol.

I drink J&C when i'm on the lash, but this stuff is something else. It can't be compared to normal whiskey (or Scotch! ;-)) - it is definitely worth the price tag. It isn't produced in the quantities of the rough stuff, it is properly aged malt. You won't find Morrisons putting it in there '3 for £20' offers!!!! Give it a go; even if it's a grower you can keep it for special occasions!!

JD is bourbon (i.e. mostly made from corn); this is malt whisky (i.e. made from malted barley), so it's not fair to compare them side-by-side.

From personal experience, if you really like the taste of JD then I would steer clear, especially if you're someone who likes coke with their JD. The only time I would recommend it is if you're someone who drinks JD for the image (which - let's face it - lots of JD drinkers are). If you're not too fond of the taste of JD, then by all means give this a go. However, if you buy JD for the taste or because you think it's a good mixer for your Coke, then I wouldn't waste your money.

It's a massive con that single malts like this are no cheaper in the Duty Free at the airports then in the shops and this deal makes it way better value then anywhere else. A lovely drop but I would say it's more an 'orange' taste than a 'peaty' one.
#21
Nice enough whisky, I got a bottle (similar deal) recently from tesco..

I still prefer Aberlour though. :thumbsup:

I would agree about the taste. This isn't particularly peaty at all - it's much sweeter than the really peaty Islay malts.

You should try this then mate.... http://www.aberlour.com/abunadh/ its very strong though, approx 60% !! (although the strength varies slightly with each cask).

I picked up a botle from Waitrose a couple of weeks ago for around £25.00 :)

True - Jura is not a peaty malt, like the other island malts. They do a slightly more expensive version called Jura Superstition which is more heavily peated. Was in Morrisons last week and , the Jura Superstition was reduced - down from something like £31 to £25.

Anyways, Jura for £17 is a steal. One of the easiest-drinking malts out there and probably a good one for single malt virgins to pop their cherry on.
#25
yeah its not as peaty as lagavulin or any of the islay malts, but it if you had to put it in any bracket I'd put it closer to the islay malts than highland speayside etc.
#26
talisker is my tipple but might give this a go heard good things about isle of jura

This nicer than glenmorangie 10year old / glenfidich 12 yr old or laphroaig? Was looking to get some of this on offer next.

In my opinion its nicer than all of the above, but its down to personal taste I guess....

Laphroaig is far to peaty for my liking.

This can be most of the time, HOWEVER, its worth bearing in mind that the airports get *some* whisky in 1ltr bottles in instead of the 75cl that you get in the supermarkets. This makes the Balvenie Doublewood for instance, a cracking deal in the duty free as its normally only a couple of pounds dearer then the supermarkets, but with an extra third of a bottle more!

I will agree that this is a cracking deal and will be popping out to pick one up shortly...

a little bit unfair. i used to steer well clear of jd because of the image thing, but gave it a go a little while ago and was pleasantly surprised. it's possible to like both, just as it's possible to like tea and coffee, or beer and cider. bourbon has been marketed totally differently to whisky, and maybe with a bit of thought the whisky industry could retake it's crown, which has been unexplainably stolen by vodka.
#31
this is fantastic though, not peaty, but mellow, much like tullamore dew in that it's a good one to try on whisky virgins. got a bottle for £16 the other week in tesco :-)

Always loved Isle of Jura, great spot and thank's for the tip. Bought my bottle from Asda today.

If your looking for a smooth whisky, you would be hard pushed to do better.

I'm sold! bought myself one last week and as OP said miles apart from FG. much smoother with a rich taste, love it. bought one for my old amn who normally drinks FG too.

where do I go from here though? Say it's my b'day or I have a few extra pennies to try out another - any tips on what to look out for in the same mold as Isle of Jura.

cheers

If you like the taste of Jura BEWARE of the peated malts..... some of them are an extremely aquired taste:thumbsup:
