Jura 18 Years Old

At the peak of the Jura distillery’s core range (relaunched in mid-2018) sits the Isle of Jura 18 Year Old. This expression aged in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels before enjoying a finishing period in Premier Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux barrels, imparting a rich fruitiness. Top stuff for late evening dramming.

Palate: Brandied cherries, Turkish delight, milky coffee and blackcurrant jam.
