Jura 10 Years Old Legacy is a light and elegant bottling. This version has been aged in Sherry casks, accounting for its interesting profile, full of character with a comforting exotic taste sensation.

The tasting reveals subtle notes of golden honey, combined with fresh fruits and mentholated pear, while the heavy, appealing pine wood rise alongside malty and salty notes. Undertones of peat and dry-stone last harmoniously in the backdrop.

Some say Isle of Jura is the oldest distillery of Scotland. Indeed, the first traces of distillation hark back to the 16th century. The distillery was renamed several times. It successively bore the name of Caol'nan Eilean, Craighouse, Small Isles and Lagg.

Built in 1810, the first to obtain a license to distil is William Abercrombie, in 1831. In the following year, Archibald Fletcher took over the distillery and managed for 20 years. It changed owner many times in the 19th century: J&A Gardner, Norman Buchanan, J.K. & D. Orr and James Furgusson. As the landlord decided to collect taxes on the land, the Furgusson family moved all the equipment to Glasgow. This did not deter the landlord to pursue the Furgusson’s who came back to the Isle of Jura and dismantled the distillery’s roofs. Indeed, law exempted all roofless structures from taxation. More recently, after 40 years of closure between 1914 and 1948, the distillery was fully rebuilt with financial support from Scottish & Newcastle Breweries. The architect who rebuilt the distillery is well known in the whisky world, as it is Delmé Evans, who also rebuilt, amongst others, the Glenallachie and Tullibardine distilleries.

The Scottish & Newcastle Breweries sold the distillery to Invergordon, which was purchased by White & Mackay and became in 2001 Kyndal Spirits. The Kyndal Spirits became in 2003 Whyte & Mackay Ltd. The distillery is one of the flagships of Whyte & Mackay. The wide and tall stills of the distillery have been conceived to produce a light distillate, enabling Isle of Jura to contribute to the Whyte & Mackay blends. The range has considerably expanded these last few years also with the creation of peated versions of Jura whisky.

    Colour: amber with old gold reflections.

    Nose: characterful and appealing. Marked by Sherry and notes of white grapes and flowers of great freshness, over a backdrop of menthol and minerals. Evolves on pear and apricot notes, caramel and cinnamon.

    Palate: utterly sweet, very spicy, very fruity. Grains are more present together with oaky and peaty taste sensations.

    Finish: lavish with raisins and exotic fruits (coconut, mango), evolves onto coffee and violet notes.

    This 10 Year-Old bottling aged in Sherry casks is the perfect summer aperitive and perfect served with exotic desserts.
