Generally I love Jura for its smooth brandy-like velvetty flavour, I an not entirely convinced by this particular permutation. Made by a tiny island community, on an island where the 200 residents are outnumbered by some 5,000 deer, Jura distillery makes a surprisingly light whisky - expertly balancing the sweet and the smoky.

Single malt distilleries often take pride in their craftsmanship and their adherence to traditional production methods. Palate: Oily and moreish with spices - cinnamon and cloves - with an underlying salted caramel depth. Nose Zesty wafts of fresh lemon peel and candied orange open things up followed by mint leaves and blossom.

Matured in American ex-bourbon barrels and enriched by Premier Grand Cru Classé red wine barriques, this 18-year-old is bottled at 44% ABV.

I too was not sure at first but soon realised that this has a lot to offer in terms of smell and taste and has a fairly long finish. Delmé-Evans was most involved with Jura, however,remaining on the board until his retirement in 1975.The distillery use lightly-peated malt which produces a light whisky with an almost oily taste to it.

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). Our boxes are made of 100% recyclable cardboard and our protective honeycomb paper wrap keeps your package safe and significantly reduces our need for plastic. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Just 8 miles long, Jura's single track road stretches from the island's ferry port in the West, right up to the Northeast of our island. With water it was much smoother, very chocolatey, hints of coffee and black pepper again after a while. A well-balanced entry in the Jura range, made up of both smoky and unpeated whisky matured in bourbon casks and finished in sherry, adding darker notes to the soft smoke and fresh fruit of the distillery's whisky. I initially tried this neat and the nose was smokey with a sweetness not unlike peat, a little bit of water allowed the chocolate and coffee through as well as hints of ginger and orange with the smoke more in the background.

This exceptional single malt matures in American white oak ex-bourbon and hand-selected American Rye barrels, imparting depth and complexity.

Jura is Norse for “deer island” and on the Hebridean island of Jura the red deer outnumber the human residents by about thirty to one. Whisky connoisseurs often appreciate the individuality and specific characteristics of single malts from a particular distillery whilst others may appreciate the artistry and complexity that can result from blending different single malts to create a balanced flavor profile.Welcome to Jura: A few miles off the west coast of Scotland you'll find our island: remote, sometimes wild, yet always beautiful, home to 212(ish) islanders, one road, one pub and one distillery. It may not be reproduced in any way whatsoever without Wm Morrisons Supermarkets Limited prior consent, nor without due acknowledgement. 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. Not sure if anyone else got it but this unmistakable tropical fruit/mango finish with a hint of pepper. 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”.
