Established in 1810, the Isle of Jura is found north-west of the Island of Islay. As with many other Scotch distilleries, Jura went through a rough patch in the first half of the 20th century. It wasn't until 1960, when two local estate owners, Robin Fletcher and Tony Riley-Smith rebuilt the distillery and introduced taller stills that Jura was able to create a wider mix of malts. Jura’s Whiskies are just as unique as their place – a range of rich, seafaring Whiskies – some lightly peated, others carrying a heavier peated profile.
 
The Isle of Jura Turas Mara honours the islanders who migrated to North America in 18th and 19th century, ‘Turas Mara’ meaning long journey in Scots Gaelic. It is a non-age statement single malt matured in mixture of Bourbon barrels, Sherry butts, French Oak Casks and port pipes. The choice and sheer number of different casks reflects the exotic and unique flavor that comes from wood sourced from around the globe. This Single Malt will simply leave you craving for more and everso a little more…

Charles
Charles,
Mild dram. Mainly tasting the smoke and oak. Very short lived.
Rudy
Rudy,
I found it extremely rough, hard to drink neat
Eric
Eric,
Very smooth. One of the best I have had. All flavours are present and not masked by spice.
Aaron
Aaron,
So smooth it's almost boring at first. But there's some complexity to be found if you stick with it. An easy drinker perfect for sharing with friends.

Nice and balanced. Will buy this one again.
Mel
Mel,
Nose of vanilla with a beautiful light amber color. Caramel on the tongue with a light finish. Good for new scotch drinkers but it's a little boring for me.
Alex
Alex,
Very light and enjoyable drink. Very good for someone looking for an introduction to single malts; it doesn't hit you in the face with smokiness but still brings you all you enjoy in a single malt. Might be too simple for the experienced drinker, but still worth a spot on the bar.
Charles
Charles,
Very appealing scent of caramel, vanilla with a hint of fruit. Taste of smooth chocolate with almost no peat or smoke flavor. Very smooth. The best Scotch I've had.
Josh
Josh,
Nice blend of bitter and sweet
Stephen
Stephen,
Definitely on the lighter side. After diving in head first with Talisker and Deer Bear and moose Puncheon; this one is a little too simple.
Daniel
Daniel,
The first thing that hits my nose with this is fruit followed quickly by vanilla and spice, maybe cinnamon and/or cloves? The nose on this is very complex and I can't quite put a finger on some of the notes I'm picking up. But it is wonderful! So much going on in there! On the palate I get spicy dry fruit. There is a little sweetness, but not much. Just like with the nose there is more that I can't quite pin down. The finish is fairly long and dry, with a hint of smoke and pepper. Adding just a touch of water brings out some caramel notes in the nose and more of the sweetness, vanilla and chocolate tones, on the palate. This is one complex dram and definitely leaves me wanting to try more.
