The Jura ten-year-old matured in ex-bourbon casks before undergoing a sherry cask finish.
Nose: Aromas of fruit, cracked pepper and dark chocolate.
Taste: Nectarines, ginger and freshly ground coffee.
Whyte & Mackay-owned Jura was first built in 1810 on the island that shares its name. A chequered history of closures, dismantles and rebuilds has led to a hugely popular distillery, particularly in the UK. A cult loved distillery, they tend to be reasonably weighty whiskies with gentle smoke.
