Islay, Scotland- Split distilled to create a subtly smoky whisky then matured in American Oak and finished in six new French Oak casks. This whisky has a tropical sweetness, milk chocolate flavors, and a whisper of smoke.
Jura Whisky is handcrafted on the Isle of Jura, a rugged, elemental island nestled sixty miles off the West Coast of Scotland. Home to less than 200 Islanders, the island boasts one road, one pub and one distillery. Established in 1810, the Jura distillery marries together peated and unpeated whiskies to create a truly unique Island Single Malt. With subtle smoke at its heart, and a complimentary sweetness from maturation in American and European oak casks, Jura creates a highly approachable whisky, perfect for consumers new to peat.
Scotch, quite simply, is whisky made and aged at least three years in Scotland. All whisky made in Scotland is Scotch, and must follow specific production regulations.
All Scotch varieties fall within two broad categories or are blends of these two: malt whisky and grain whisky. Malt whisky must be 100 percent malted barley. Grain whisky may include wheat, rye, corn or other grains.
