The oldest of the new set of five releases that make up a new core range offering from The Jura distillery for 2018.
Aged in Ex-American oak Bourbon casks and finished in Red wine casks.
Nose: Aromatic cigar smoke, cherry pie filling, stewed plums, old tea chest wood, cinder toffee, hot ribena, smokey bluberry, liquorice and nutmeg.
Palate: A firm and dry delivery, earthy black grape, cherry jam, dark chocolate, peppery smoke, nut brittle, raisin bread and lingering aromatic spices.
Finish: Black fruit and cigar box notes drying into waxy and grape skins with lasting aromatic wood spice.
A juicy and grapey Jura that could be twinned with a French winery in the Rhone valley as it has an influence of the classic new style Jura and French terroir.
A very enjoyable addition to the new core range.
