Jura 18 Year
Peated Single Malt
Jura // Islands, Scotland
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 Premier Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux red wine barrels. Bottled at 44% ABV, this will be available globally.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
Cask Typeex-bourbon & ex-red wine casks
"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."
