A 29-year-old single cask from Island distillery, Jura, bottled by Colonsay Drinks' owned, Scalasaig as part of the "Island Hopper" series.

Distilled in 1992, this was matured in American oak cask ex-Bourbon barrel #2505 for 29 years; yielding 198 bottles at 48.1% abv. Unchill-filtered, natural colour.

 

Official tasting notes:

Nose: Earthy, biscuity and with a touch of vanilla cream

Palate: Sweet muscovado sugared apples, old oak and sea salt spray

Finish: Warming toasted oak and lingering sweet spice

 

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. We think it shines brightest currently in the hands of independent bottlers. 

 

The Scalasaig is the latest bottling brand from independent bottler, Colonsay Beverages. The group is based on the tiny port village of Scalasaig on Colonsay island; just 16 kilometres North-West of Islay. The "Island Hopper" series portrays a voyage around the Hebridean islands off of Scotland's West coast, sailing coast to coast procuring exquisite single malts along the way: certainly, at least the latter half is true.
