Jura Seven Wood
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. Like the name would suggest this whisky has been matured in 7 different types of casks: First-fill ex-bourbon American white oak, Vosges, Bertranges, Jupilles, Allier, Tronçais and Limousin barrels.
A surprisingly balanced whisky for so much going on, the nose is quite warm and has a bitterness like coffee or cocoa. The palate brings in the fruity character with stoned fruits but also the smoke from the peat and a little saltiness. There is a long sweet finish on the whisky.
