If you’re a long time reader, you know we’ve churned through a not-small number of bottles here at iScotch. Cost and availability are really our only limiters; we’re more than happy to try anything that could have any tangential relationship to whisk(e)y – beers, gins, flavoureds, heck we’ve even been thinking about adding rums, wines … Continue reading Jura Elixir 12y with Dan, Ryan & Goran
This is the entry level Jura, and it fits the line to a T. By the way, its totally fine to buy a Jura based solely on the bottle shape and the detail in the packaging. Updated: This is a pretty empty review, so we got Matt to add his notes on this. Man, this … Continue reading Updated! Jura Origin 10y with Dan & Matt
Alright alright alright! BattleScotch! Battle of the 10 year olds! It’s gonna be dirty fighting and name calling the whole way down. On the left, Bushmills 10y Single Malt, on the right, Jura Origin 10y. Both crowd pleasers, and while the results won’t tarnish anyone’s enjoyment of either, it might inform our purchases in the … Continue reading BattleScotch! Bushmills 10y Single Malt v Jura Origin 10y with Dan, Ryan & Goran
BattleScotch 2! Jura Superstition v Jura 10y Origin! This format was fun last time so we’re doing it again! But the formatting sucked last time so we’re going to try and fix it! Superstition Origin 10y Smell Dan X Goran X Simon X Ryan X Neat Dan X Goran X Simon X Ryan X Splash … Continue reading Battlescotch! Jura Superstition v Jura Origin 10y with Dan, Goran & Ryan
This is a big hitter. Probably one of the most robust scotches I’ve tasted so far that remains drinkable. Hands down, we have nothing but good things to say about the entire Jura line. This particular expression coined the term “Nostalgiafying” as the heavy smoke brings thoughts of camping to mind. Neat: The Dan – … Continue reading Jura Prophecy with The Dan
Replaced the Superstition and picked up the Origin 10y and Prophecy at the same time. They look pretty good together.
Another bottle to replace. This Jura was one of the first bottles I bought myself – I really liked the story they told on the box, for the most part. But it has grown to mean more to more people and as such, must be returned to the shelf. Neat: Katherine – heavy on the … Continue reading Jura Superstition with Katherine & Dan
We’re down to the last 5 bottles of scotch I already own. So far the only scotch I’ve bought since starting the blog is The Glenrothes, so I’ll need to step up the buy/go out to bars with scotch cycle. Coming up from the home stash: Jura Superstition, Oban 14y, Glen Breton 18y, Bowmore 12y … Continue reading Final Five
