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.

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).
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
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.
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
