Jura Turas Mara

Best Islands Single Malt 2014

Roasted meat, some woody spice (anise and fennel) with drying and lengthy finish. A fireside Sunday-luncher of a whisky. Neil Ridley

Toasted spices and oats like flapjack. Jammy fruits and Jaffa cakes. More floral like honeysuckle with water. Orange marmalade and sticky toffee pudding. Hint of dried ham on brown paper. All wrapped up with warm earthy peatiness. Annabel Meikle

Old smoke, which sits brilliantly on top of roast lamb and burning pine. The palate gives more roasted meats, some vanilla and a finish of oaky goodness. Joel Harrison

Honey, marmalade and melon on the nose. Brown sugared bran flakes, honeyed melon and tinned fruit syrup come through on the medium weight palate. Tim Forbes

Soft cereals, toasted oak, linseed oil, cinnamon and eucalyptus embracing a sweet character of honey, baklava, caramel and chocolate in a candy shell. On the palate there’s tobacco, leather, fruit skins, liquorice and anise bitterness. Robin Laing
