Product Description

The third of five new releases from Jura and part of a new core range for 2018.

Aged for 12 years in a combination of American white oak and Ex-Oloroso sherry casks.

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Very aromatic spices (a spice stand at a Turkish market) earthy red fruit (like pick your own strawberries on a rainy day) dried figs and dates, Sherry oak evident and touches of old tea chest wood on the bonfire and toasted pecan nuts in honey and some cigar box aromas.

Palate: Malty honeycomb delivery, banana bread, aromatic bonfire smoke (camphor wood and cinnamon) juicy and mellow body with notes of mocha, walnut, ginger and some black fruit (cassis cordial)

Finish: Apple candyfloss on bonfire night, caramac bars and tunnocks toffee wafers, the sweet and aromatic smoke continues into fruity liquorice and banana chips with late black forest fruit and earthy wood notes.

More Sherry cask influence here than the 10 year old and all the better and more complex for it, an enjoyable and much improved 12 year old offering from what feels like a proper Island malt now.
