Jura - 21 Year OldOrkney Malt Whisky
This island playground for the rich and famous lies off the west coast of Scotland. Home to 7 private estates, the soaring Paps of Jura, one shop, one pub and since 1810 one fine malt whisky distillery. Distilled in 1984 to commemorate the famous novel written on the island, this rare whisky has been quietly maturing in beachside warehouses. The deep red mahogany combines with a nose of fresh rich fruit cake, chocolate and orange leaving the smooth taste of soft berries, spice and cinnamon.
Colour- Deep amber gold
Nose - Rich and intense. Soft hints of marzipan and spicy chocolate flaunt themselves in an enticing manner. Aromas of spice and vanilla. Whispers of citrus toffee. Great harmony, warmly expressed.
Palate - Mellow and seductive. The warmth of the tongue release these wonderful hedonistic flavours of spice, caramel, liquorice and almonds. A spectrum of delight that only age can bring.
Bronze award winner at the 2005 International Wine and Spirit Competition.
