Whisky Festival 2015 Exclusive […]

I have tried single malts matured in many different barrels, after Bourbon of course, sherry, port, madeira, other wines and beer too. I did not drink whisky aged in sparkling wine casks. So its time for a new sensations or maybe it will not make much difference? Interesting ... During a visit to a distillery on the Isle of Jura, Jura Tastival hit my eyes, specially released for the festival in 2015, distilled in 1997 and bottled with 52% ABV. Above that natural color and non-chill filtered. The total no. of bottles 3970, mine is 1136. Whisky was matured in sparkling wine casks - Bouvet Ladubay from the Loire Valley.

Score: 90. Jura Tastival 1997/2015, 52% ABV has a very nice and unusual smell, I think here mostly about herbs, which I dont find in whisky very often. The taste is also very good but more typical. In fact, I had no problem in tasting it without any dilution, out of curiosity, I added a drop or two of water. It is probably the power of the suggestion, but I began to feel the grapes here ;) Generally this Jura is delicious. If I...

    Jura from GM

    Jura is the only distillery located on the Isle of Jura, but it seems that Ive had already time to write about it (eg. A visit to the Isle of Jura, The Isle of Jura Boutique Barrels, Jura Origin 10 yo, Jura 16 yo Diurachs Own). Certainly distillery and island itself are worth a visit. Okay ... but what we have today? It is Jura Vintage 1997/2012 from Gordon & MacPhail, a series of Connoisseurs Choice, bottled with 46% ABV, no coloring or chillfiltration. K: white wine; N: malty,...

    Classic from Isle of Jura

    Recently I described a visit to the beautiful Isle of Jura, earlier on the blog appeared The Isle of Jura 1995 Boutique Barrels Bourbon JO Cask Finish, and Jura Origin 10 years old, but basically I should start with Jura 16 years old Diurachs Own, as it is the whisky, Ive started my adventure with this distillery.

    Once you get to the Isle of Islay, you should find time and visit the Isle of Jura, with the only distillery on the island at the helm. Paps of Jura are a landmark of Isle of Jura - they are perfectly visible from many places on Islay. [caption id=attachment_5733 align=alignnone width=801] Paps of Jura[/caption] The easiest way to reach the Jura from Islay is to use a small ferry, which takes off from Port Askaig and flows through the strait, directly to the Jura - Feolin Ferry....

    Isle of Jura representative

    During last Easter holidays Jura Origin 10 years old felt into my hands. There arent a lot of editions of this single malt from a beautiful Isle of Jura. Previously I described The Isle of Jura 1995 Boutique Barrels Bourbon JO Cask finish – naturally presented - the color, power, and no chillfiltration. Today, something more commonly available - Jura Origin 10 years old, bottled at 40% ABV. [caption id=attachment_5716 align=alignnone width=801] Jura Origin 10 years old[/caption]...
