Jura The Loch
You Save: £30.00
A spicy single malt from the wonderful Jura distillery, found on the Scottish island of the same name 60 miles from the mainland. It’s named The Loch after the distillery’s all-important water source, Market Loch, found 1,000 feet above sea level.
The whisky itself is a blend of peated and unpeated spirits, matured in both American white oak ex-bourbon barrels and casks which previously held 30-year-old Pedro Ximénez sherry. The distillery was first established in 1810, but was closed at the beginning of the 20th century, and it remained silent until the stills were fired up again in 1963. The island of Jura is a pretty unique place, with just one main road, one pub, and one distillery. Oh, and the deer population outnumbers the human population more than 40 times, with over 5,000 deer and fewer than 200 people!
Treacle tart, stewed apple, and homemade blackcurrant jam, with a hint of coffee ice cream.
Bitter orange, rich espresso, and a whiff of peat smoke, followed by caramelised banana.
Spiced orchard fruits, treacle toffee, and nutty coffee.
