Description

It is a natural drink, a distillation of the riches with which Scotland is so abundantly endowed – of fields of golden barley and wheat; of clear waters tumbling down glens of granite and over moors of peat; and of the cool, pure air of Scotland. With approximately 200 Diurachs – the Gaelic name for the inhabitants – living on the island, most everyone there knows someone who works at Jura. The Jura 10 is the cornerstone of that relaunch, aging in ex-bourbon barrels before being finished for an undisclosed time in ex-Oloroso sherry casks. The still-man raises the temperature within the wash still and gradually, the fermented liquid is heated and the alcohol in the wash vaporises.

The quality of the casks is carefully monitored because the new spirit is to gain character and colour from the wood in which it rests. This is now my 3rd bottle of Jura 10 in as little as 5 weeks, that in it's self should tell you it's good, but if not allow me to explain why I like it so much. The vapours rise up the swan neck and pass over the head of the still, before being guided through condensers where they revert to liquid. The skills of the still-man, required to judge the moment at which the Scotch malt and the Scotch grain spirit is ready to be collected, are crucial to the art of distilling.The blender will nose it again, once it is reduced to the alcoholic strength required for bottling, to ensure that the quality of the blend is consistent with all the others he has produced over the years. The palate is thick and full with more cereal, this time a barley fudge sweetness creeps in with creamy smoothness and a touch of aniseed. I am disappointed as Jura was a good distillery once, but this has non of the complexity or warmth that I remember from 15 years ago. Matured in American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels for 10 years and finished in Oloroso Sherry casks from Jerez, Spain. With water it was much smoother, very chocolatey, hints of coffee and black pepper again after a while.

It's initially aged in American white oak bourbon barrels before enjoying a finishing period in Oloroso sherry butts and bottled at 40% ABV. The malted barley is then ground to a rough-hewn grist and mixed with hot water in a vessel known as a mash tun. The distillery's machinery and buildings were owned by different individuals and a dispute between the two led to its closure for over fifty years in 1913.We take care to make sure product details are correct but the information shown, including vegan and vegetarian suitability, ingredients, and alcohol by volume (ABV) may change. In practice, most Scotch whisky matures for much longer – from five to fifteen, twenty, or twenty-five years and sometimes longer.

Citrus and brine enters on the palate, balanced with a hearty oakiness, which transitions nicely to a maritime finish with a pleasant sweetness. Located on a remote island just off the West Coast of Scotland, Jura is an ancient landscape filled with wild mountains, peaceful lochs and stormy seas. Henry – A litany of flavors in the nose: fruit wood and nuts, especially cherry, pecan, walnut, and green peppercorn. A smoky and unpeated whisky that is matured in bourbon casks and finished in sherry, this single malt is well-balanced and presents fruity, dark chocolate notes. It is warm in colour with aromas of fruit, cracked pepper and dark chocolate and flavours of nectarines, ginger and freshly ground coffee.

Using pure water from the Island's tallest mountains, the Paps of Jura, which has filtered down to Market Loch below along with some of the tallest stills of any island distillery produces a whisky that tastes rich and rounded, sweet with a hint of subtle smokiness. This has a light golden colour with a nose that is clean and fresh with a hint of sea salt almonds and spice notes are also present. This takes place as the spirit flows through a spirit safe, where the still-man can observe, assess and measure it.
