This is where it all started. It's the whisky that signifies the rebuilding of our community and rebirth of the Jura distillery. On the front of the bottle is a Celtic symbol for birth, beginnings and the forces of nature. It's something that we added to our unique bottle because we thought it symbolised our unique story, and the whisky that is at the heart of everything we do.

This is not to say that it is without taste though, the aroma of this single malt when freshly poured into the glass will ensure the drinker of the taste they will receive when lips touch liquid. This truly is a whisky with a warming texture to it that can remind one of honey, and is not as smokey as some single malts. All in all a malt to be savoured.
This is remarkably similar to its elder brother the "superstition" apart from being a little rough around the edges, mainly from the alcoholic bite on the tongue, yet it doesn't have the smoke or depth in spices that the superstition has. I've said it before in my review of the Superstition, that out of the whole Jura range the Superstition is the best bang for your buck version to go for, that said the Origin does offer you a good starting experience to the Jura range. You get Oak characteristics on the nose and on the palate besides toffee and very mild liquorice. With a small amount of water the alcoholic nip virtually goes away and is replaced by a fresh apple/ pineapple aroma and taste.
Verdict: Jura is distinctive enough to be treated differently from the malts from Islay, yet you will be surprised at how many people believe Jura comes from Islay. No, it comes from the Island of Jura although you can only travel to Jura via Islay, which is where i think the confusion comes in. Pay no more than £26 for the Origin and you will enjoy this scotch as the entry level Jura. It's not overly complex but the experience on offer is self evident!
I really got the hits of flavours, licorice, coffee beans, sugary sweetness. This is a lovely malt.
NB I bought from supermarket £24
I ordered this item after a failed delivery of beer from another company. This was a short notice purchase that I did not expect in such a quick span of time (especially with the Christmas period) but it came two days later, a nice surprise! It was efficiently packaged with the best packaging I've ever seen for a bottle - truly the company cares about their product1
Now on to the whisky - I cannot fault the whisky, however, it's slightly less smooth than the regular Jura that comes in pubs - but this is a taste issue, and more experience whisky drinkers will certainly find no fault in this, even so, it's still an enjoyable dram.
Jura is a whisky with a lot of heritage behind it, and the packaging in itself a fascinating read - good to see whisky coming back in to style again in Scotland.
If you enjoy a strong, heavy weight whisky then go for this, if not then try to go for Elixir rather than Origin.
For those less experienced with a good Scotch this is a malt that needs ice or a drop of water to calm the taste.
I would recommend this as a gift or drink for older drinkers.
Single malts often seem daunting as they can be very specific in taste, unlike blends which tend to appeal to a broader palette, but this is beautiful! Great tasting whisky, and for a single malt, not badly priced (in my opinion).
