The top-of-the-line Single Malt from Jura aged eighteen years and finished in Bordeaux casks.

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 its namesake Whiskey — 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. Now owned by Emperador Distillers, things have gone well since and Jura is a respected Single Malt once again with fans who crave their hybrid Island/Lowland style.

The Isle of Jura Distillery has been experimenting with Single Malt formulations for the last few years. Isle of Jura 18 Year Old represents the new top-of-the-line offering. It has been aged for a full eighteen years in refill ex-Bourbon casks and finished in Premier Grand Cru Classé Bourdeaux Wine casks. It’s bottled at a respectable 44% ABV, allowing the signature style of Jura Single Malt to shine through.

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.

Ratings & Reviews
A wonderfully sumptuous whiskey, which is actually red-wine finished, not sherry, which makes a nice change. The red wine nose and palate is very strong with lots of fruit and milk chocolate but it may not be for everyone as it's a bit different. The price here is ridiculous though and can be bought for 2/3 this cost (or less) at other online retailers...
'the airport' buy for a gift to a friend, decent whisky ok priced
Sweet and a hint of smoke!! Loved it!!!
A very nice, complex Scotch. Salty with a good amount of peat and smokiness. The sherry finish is perfect.
