Released as part of the Jura Signature Series in March 2018, Jura Seven Wood first ages in American oak first-fill ex-bourbon barrels. It then is further aged in six different French oak barrels: Limousin, Tronçais, Allier, Vosges, Jupilles, and Les Bertranges. None of these barrels previously held wine. This no-age statement release has a "hint of subtle smoke" and is bottled at 42% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"Jura Seven Wood is an exotic whisky that combines the sea-spray and subtle woodsmoke of Jura’s malt with the downright indulgent aromas of baked pear, stone fruit, curry spice, and milk chocolate of the French cooperage. The palate is fairly light with dominating flavors of oaky sweetness contrasting a pungent salty-ness that fills the pleasant but somewhat short finish."
