Jura Turas Mara
I was brought back one of these the other day…
I bought a bottle last Summer and have been longing for another ever since. Unfortunately it’s an airport duty free only bottle, so I don’t often have the chance to get hold of one – they wouldn’t even sell me one at the distillery when I popped in a few months ago!
Jim Murray gives it a 82.5 in his Whisky Bible, which I think is a bit on the low side. It’s finished in a mix of bourbon barrels, Bordeaux wine and ruby port casks, and these certainly give is a richness not found in many whiskies I’ve tried, although Mr Murray thinks it’s too oily and he might be right.
Still, I really like this one!
