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 flavour that comes from wood sourced from around the globe. This Single Malt will simply leave you craving for more and everso a little more…

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavour finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Ratings & Reviews
Josh
Nice blend of bitter and sweet
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.
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.
Dan
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.
