Jura's Choice.

Not much happens on the island of Jura. This Scottish island just north of Islay has a population of 5000 red deer, but only 200 people. But Jura has long had it’s namesake Whisky ever since the Jura Distillery was founded in 1810. The facility fell into a bit of disrepair in the early part of the 1900s, but was resurrected again by Robin Fletcher and Tony Riley-Smith in 1963. Things have gone well since then and Jura is now a respected sngle malt once again with many fans around the world.

The people of Jura call themselves “The Diurach” and they are especially proud of Jura 16 year old single malt Whisky. Each dram in Jura’s core range has a special “given” name, and the 16 YO is called “Diurach’s Own.” It starts with the classic Jura single malt aged fourteen full years in first-fill ex-Bourbon casks, followed by two more years Oloroso Sherry casks. It’s rich and lightly peated with a sophisticated palate and a relatively mild peat influence.

Smartass Corner: The Isle of Jura is notoriously hard to get to. The famous author George Orwell wrote is masterpiece “1984” here in isolation and called this remote location “extremely un-get-at-able.”

Very nice, fruity, sweet and a hint of smoke makes for a nice but not overwhelming taste
