Part of the new core range of whiskies launched by Isle of Jura in early 2018, this 10 year old expression takes the place of Jura Origin. Initially aged in American white oak bourbon barrels before enjoying a finishing period in Oloroso sherry butts.
Nose: Honeyed barley, syrup, with light wafts of fragrant wood smoke, maritime and salty.
Palate: Oily and subtly spicy at first, before notes of earthy vanilla pod and chocolate-covered raisins develop.
