A top-notch gift set contain three 50ml miniatures of Jura single malt whisky.
This selection features Jura’s Journey, 10 Year Old and Seven Wood expressions.
Journey is Jura’s entry level bottling, and has been aged entirely in former Bourbon American oak barrels. The whisky offers notes of buttery nuts, fresh oak, honey, dried apricot, banana candy and the faintest touch of smoke.
Jura 10 Year Old is the distillery’s ‘flagship’ bottling. The whisky has been aged initially in Bourbon barrels, before a finish in Oloroso Sherry butts. The result is a subtly smoky dram, with flavours of chocolate-covered raisins, vanilla, spiced custard, burnt oak, prunes in syrup and gentle peat.
Jura Seven Wood is a maximalist dram from the Island distillery, which (as the name suggests) has been aged in seven types of cask. The barrels included American white oak, alongside a dizzying six varieties of French oak cask: Limousin, Tronçais, Allier, Vosges, Jupilles, and Les Bertranges.
The result is a deeply fruity and complex whisky, with notes of lemon rind, baked peaches, apples, pears, strawberry jam, toasted nuts, milk chocolate and a touch of woodsmoke.
A great introduction to this popular island distillery.
