CHARACTERISTICS AND TASTING NOTES
It exists. In the mysterious mists that settle around the Paps of Jura – and in this bottle. Here is a beautifully crafted malt that is fresh and invigorating. In our master distiller’s own words: “The freshness of the Small Batch Bourbon from Kentucky has taken this island malt to a higher level”. It comes at 56.4% and is heavily peated. But the joy here, is that the billowing smokiness is tempered by the soft vanilla and floral notes of the Bourbon wood. The result is a stunning combination of peat smoke and petal freshness.
Its satisfying character draws on its casking history too. It was matured in American white oak from 1999 until 2006, when it was re-casked in 1st Fill distillery run Bourbon barrels and left for its final spell of maturation in Warehouse No. 2 which faces the varied weather of Small Isle Bay. This is a particularly airy warehouse that allows both summer’s sea breezes and winter’s gales to work their elemental magic on the barrels.
This expression is from the first production of Jura Heavily Peated, which was produced in the exactly same way that it was originally distilled almost 200 years ago in 1810. That’s a lot in one glass. A symphony. You could say, a bit of heaven. We’re head over heels about it.
