Jura 18 Year Old
Jura Distillery has gone under a big revamp, bringing in an entirely new collection of whiskies in new packing and all at least slightly peated. This expression has been aged for 18 years in American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels and finished in superior Premier Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux casks.
The nose brings sweet burnt sugar, with a little banana and citrus. There is also a slight not of warm spice. The palate has a drier texture, with burnt coffee and dark chocolate. The finish is long warming and has a hint of summer berries.
