This non-peated whisky is aged for 14 years in American oak before being transferred to an ex-Amoroso sherry cask. The name "Diurachs" refers to the inhabitants of the Jura. Though the whisky is very accessible, the Isle is not. Most people get a ferry (or fly) to the Isle of Islay before then getting another ferry to Jura.

Tasting Notes

"Initially, there isn't much going on with the aroma save for some dried fruits. But as you taste, it certainly opens up. Honey, raisins, and wet tobacco are on the palate along with whiffs of sea salt. Though the whisky is a bit grainy from the wood tannins, overall, the whisky is very easy to sip. "
