Battlehill Jura 13
This fine single malt was distilled on the isle of Jura on the west coast, and matured for over a decade by the good folks at Duncan Taylor as part of their Battlehill series.
Nose : sweet pastries, stewed fruit, mostly apricots, peaches, baked apples, wet cardboard, damp wood, sandalwood, and wood spices.
Palate: quite sharp and powerful on entry, then getting sweeter and creaky with vanilla, wood spice, and custard, a hint of chocolate praline and orange maybe.
Finish: Lingering sweetness with chocolate N’ nut, orange peel.
