Description

A 5cl edition, this gives you all the chance you need to see what this Jura 8 Year Old has to offer to the whisky world!

Jura distillery is completely overhauling its entire range of Scotch whiskies in what’s being called the ‘biggest launch in its history’.

The island distillery is replacing its existing range of Scotch whiskies with a completely new line-up that introduces a new flavour direction for the brand.

From April 2018 Jura's core range of Origin, Superstition, Diurach’s Own 16 Year Old and Prophecy will be removed from sale.

The expressions will be replaced with five new bottlings – including a ‘refined and stylish’ bottle design – created around a new signature style, combining subtle smoke with sweetness from American white oak barrels and ‘enhanced’ with a Sherry cask finish, described as a mix of Highland and Island styles.

Finally, the core range is complete with the launch of Jura 18 Year Old, a single malt matured for 18 years in American oak barrels before being finished in red wine casks

Described as exhibiting notes of toffee, black forest fruits and bitter chocolate, the whisky will be available globally.

 

Tasting Notes

Nose: Malty and a little spicy on the nose, the whisky hints at nutmeg, licorice, and mint, with some dark chocolate and a touch of toasty wood making an appearance.

Palate: On the palate, a stronger chocolate character dominates, with some clove clinging to the back of it. A burnt sugar note emerges as the palate develops, and here we see a little island influence, with a salted caramel note.

Finish: Sweet with notes of spice and some hints of dark cherry
