From the Isle of Jura comes the subtly briny sea goddess 10 YO single malt.

60 miles off the western coast of Scottish mainland you will find the Isle of Jura, a sparsely inhabited island of Scotland… and we are not kidding when we say sparse  residents include 200 humans, and about 5,000 deer. On the island there is one road, one church, and one distillery (A Scot's life essentials). The Isle of Jura distillery was founded in 1963, but its facilities date back as far as 1810, as being the first licensed distillery on Jura. They are owned by independent bottlers Whyte and Mackay.

The Old Jura Distillery was founded by Laird Archibald Campbell, and sits alongside the Corryvreckan Whirlpool. Nearly a century after it was opened, the distillery was dismantled due to a land dispute, and remained closed until 1963. Today, the Jura Distillery is a curious hybrid creature, with its a fusion of modern distillation techniques and traditional craftsmanship, it remains one of the most remote and isolated distilleries on the planet.

Their Whiskies are just as curiously delightful. Jura Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from Scottish barley, milled and mashed on-site and distilled through Jura's enormous 28-foot tall copper-pot stills. The distillery sources their water from Loch a’Bhaile-Mhargaidh. Despite the fact that the water flows through a great deal of peat, the Whisky barely has any peaty character. This is quite different than its Scottish siblings across the way. Instead Jura Whisky takes its character from the sea, after all, it is surrounded by it. Isle of Jura’s 10 Year Old has a fruity character, with a medium body, accented by ginger and coffee, and the characteristic slight briny taste of Jura malts. The majority of Jura malt is aged in ex-Bourbon casks.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
The number of stills in the Jura distillery were expanded from two to four, in 1978.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
