c'mon Billy, give us more. Tasting notes, is it rich, dark, spicy, fruity, smoke, iodine, salty, peat????
I need more than "real nice dram" before I part with my hard earned, don't forget I'm a Yorkshire man It's Jura, so naturally you're going to say it's "nice"

The Whisky Thread

Straight from the distillery.
This is one patient customer - biding its time for 14 years in American white oak before spending a final two years in ex-Amoroso Oloroso sherry casks for an unbelievably full-bodied finish. Christmas seems to come early with all sorts of treats - dark chocolate, orange and honey. Its 16-year odyssey has provided countless flavours for you to explore.
I can't disagree with what it says it's full and dark and lingers on the tongue. No iodine!!
Hope you enjoy

I've got a bottle of Springbank (Special bottling for HMS Campbeltown) for drinking, another for staying sealed and a Springbank HMS Campbeltown decommissioning bottle for staying sealed.

Our affiliated port was (funny old thing) Campbeltown, where the Springbank distillery is. It's one of the smoothest whisky's I've tasted (apart from maybe Caol Isla) and has a really nice peaty/heather taste.

That's more like it. Does it mention on the bottle if it's had caramel added? I'll pick a bottle up in Feb

Remind me - (having just reminded myself of the subtitles of Laphroaig and wow the predictive text on this new toy knew it's name!) Is that the airport only one that tastes and smells a lot like you describe and only comes in handy 1L bottles outside the eu unless you want to sell your boat.

I always viewed it as an after dinner malt thats a little sweeter than the usual finish, like Dalwhinnie in that way, but without question its one of my favourites rich, christmas pudding, with a little smoke. Its getting harder to find nowadays, and BTW, I didnt particulary rate the 21 YO or the 15 over the 10 .. the 10 was fine enough last time I tried it. Its also another malt that I increase the amount of whisky to water ratio , just to increase all those flavours

Laphroaig is fine if you stay away from the 10 year old with its heavy iodine influence

It's also fine if you need something to top up the boat battery.
