Community Tasting Notes (average 88.5 pts. and median of 88 pts. in 2 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by joraesque on 1/20/2013 & rated 89 points: Strong iodine, sea air and some smoke on the nose, burnt caramel on the palate, and smoky, soft caramel on the finish. After adding a few water droplets (perhaps a quarter cube of ice per serving?) this opens up with much more peat and much less iodine on the nose, with brown sugar and toffee on the palate, and a long, peaty finish with just a slight orange rind (by the way, just like many bourbons, this would take an orange twist rather well, although not necessary). Overall, I prefer this Juray to most Islays, as I find its "profound" peatiness much better balanced. 88-89
Update: one extra point for how deliciously it drinks, especially when cut with a little water. (551 views)
