A layered Jura which has been crafted from whisky drawn from seven different wood types.
In this homage to the master blender, whisky was aged in first-fill ex-bourbon, American white oak, Limousin, Toncais, Allier, Vosges, Jupilles and Les Bertranges barrels.
Nose: An aromatic fusion of coffee, ginger spice and a hint of milk chocolate
Taste: Caramelised peach, chewy liquorice and candied orange with a hint of sea-spray and smoke
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.
