Jura 12 Elements collection Douglas Laing Old Particular
Inside, Jura is a classic 1960s distillery – large rooms, a clear flow from a semi-lauter tun, stainless steel washbacks, and a capacious stillhouse with very tall (7.7m) stills with a capacity of more than 20,000 litres. Clearly it was not built solely to satisfy the thirst of the local populace. Relatively short ferments give Jura background rigidity – meaning that this is a whisky that needs time (or active casks) to open fully.
Peated malt began to be run for a small period annually from the late 1990s onwards. This was blended with unpeated in some expressions, as well as on its own. From 2018, the core range of Jura has a subtly smoky character, from incorporating a small amount of peated spirit into the vattings.
