It is not my favourite Jura; and I find it needed a considerable quantity of both ice and water for me to find it drinkable with any pleasure. This single malt Island whisky was matured for 19 years in a single ex-Bourbon hogshead, and offers attractive aromas and flavours of shortbread, lemon, and caramel. The new distillery was producing malt more akin to the Highland style rather than the heavily-peated whisky of near-neighbours Islay, a strategy that has continued to bear fruit for Jura (although more experimental peated bottlings from the late 1990s are now finding their way to market, to some acclaim).

Jura whisky is available in a variety of single malts and vatted malts and Jura Superstition is a personal favourite amongst the staff here at Hard To Find Whisky.

Single malt whisky does have a distinct and pronounced flavor profile, often with a depth of flavor and a high degree of complexity which some connoisseurs may interpret as “better”. It’s got all you want from an every day whisky, chocolate, raisins and smoke, orange and coffee if you add a teaspoon of water. These cookies are needed for essential functions such as signing in, storing products in your trolley and making payments.Generally I love Jura for its smooth brandy-like velvetty flavour, I an not entirely convinced by this particular permutation. A touch of peat brings a rich and rounded balance of subtle smoky notes with a sweet sherry cask finish.

Matured in American white oak ex-bourbon and hand selected American Rye barrels, the casks deliver depth and complexity to this 14 year old Single Malt with layered spice, aromatic, herbal and floral qualities. It's initially aged in American white oak bourbon barrels before enjoying a finishing period in Oloroso sherry butts and bottled at 40% ABV. The Jura 18 Year Old single malt has been matured in American white oak barrels, and is enriched by time spent in French oak wine casks from a Premier Grand Cru Classe Bordeaux producer. The distillery use lightly-peated malt which produces a light whisky with an almost oily taste to it.Single malt distilleries often take pride in their craftsmanship and their adherence to traditional production methods.
