Blasts of prehistoric heather. Nose has tar, Brazil nut with a hint of iodine.
Slightly sweet hugely peaty palate has pronounced notes of eucalyptus and pine smoke with notes of smoky bacon crisps and liquorice.
Rich with pine sap, pine nuts and ends with liquorice. Not what you might expect from Jura but a great dram and great value.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
