The Isle of Jura distillery is known for producing whiskies with lots of sherry-derived flavor and some citrus elements. Juras' are lighter, more floral and un-peated (except for some peat that might be in the water used to mash and proof down the bottles).
The 16 year-old official bottling, subtitled "Diurach’s Own" (named for the people of Jura) spends 14 years in ex-bourbon, and then is transferred for 2 years into Amaroso Oloroso sherry casks to finish.
Nose: Elegant grapefruit. Mildly sherried, as befits the finish. If there’s any Island peat present, it’s in the form of a soft, ferny, heathery aroma in the distance. Soft, lovely, and floral.
Palate: Slightly chewy texture, and quite sweet. Candied orange peels, tawny fudge, blanched almonds, and marzipan. Not an ounce of burn on the tongue.
Finish: The heather notes return, with honey and a bit of oaky tannins. A final wave of very mild citrus and a ghost of bitterness.
