A Single Malt true the Jura style with new levels of flavor complexity.
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 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 highly respected Single Malt once again with fans around the world who crave their hybrid island/lowland style.
It is common knowledge that wood is vastly important to the flavor of aged whiskies. Heaven knows we all spend a lot of time talking about it. With a name like Isle of Jura Seven Wood, you immediately understand that the good folks at the Jura Distillery are taking this concept to an entirely new level.
Yes, it’s made with seven different kinds of casks. This Single Malt has its primary aging in first-fill American white oak ex-Bourbon casks. Then it is finished in six different French oak varieties — Vosges, Bertranges, Jupilles, Allier, Tronçais, and Limousin. Each type of oak imparts a bit of terroir from one of six different forests across France, yielding an interesting complexity.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aromas mingle coffee, ginger, spice and a hint of milk chocolate.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
On the palate look caramel, peach, liqouroice, candied orange and a hint of sea spray and smoke.
The finish is heavy with vanilla, flamed orange zest, and a smoky aftertaste.
