Announced in March 2018, this bottling is part of a new Signature Series from Jura which also changes the bottle shape and labeling of the brand. This peated single malt spent its first 18 years of maturation in American oak, ex-bourbon barrels. The whisky then finished aging in former red wine barrels. Bottled at 44% ABV, this will be available globally.

Tasting Notes

"The classic Jura flavors of light smoke and intense brininess are regally framed by the bourbon cask’s indulgent tones of toasted honey comb, pie crust, and vanilla cream. On the palate the red wine casks are felt with a pleasant impact of sweet red currant and dried cherry. The malt has a nice full-ish body and a lingering finish that shows a return of the peaty and salty maritime flavors of the distillate."
