The highlight of the 2018-relaunched Jura range.
This peaty Island dram has been matured for 18 years, with the bulk of its aging in American white oak Bourbon barrels, before a finishing period in Premier Grand Cru Bordeaux casks.
The result is a dram rich in smoky sweetness, with the classic oily peaty flavours of Jura, accompanied by bright oak, Bourbony spices, toffee, malt, vanilla, some fragrant heather, cream, cedarwood and berries.
The whisky is bottled at the slightly higher proof of 44% ABV, which enhances the body and mouthfeel of this dram.
Rich, fruity and peaty, this is a superb bottling from Jura.
