Jura One And All

Jura Distillery

Jura have released a limited edition 20 year old whisky, which has been chosen by the distillery workers to celebrate the community spirit on the island, and has therefore been aptly named ‘One And All’. It’s not your typical Jura whisky, or even single malt whisky for that matter, having been matured in ex-bourbon barrels, ex-sherry casks, sparkling Cabernet Franc casks, Cabernet Sauvignon casks and Pinot Noir barriques. Genuine.

Commenting on the release, Graham Logan, recently-appointed Jura Distillery Manager, said: “There’s no better way to mark the distillery team’s dedication and craftsmanship, than by creating a limited edition expression in their honour – chosen by them. In tribute to their passion and tenacity – the shared spirit that each person brings to every last drop – this special whisky is the perfect dram to toast one and all.”

Nose: Sweet, earthy and very enticing. Fig rolls, dark cherries, blackcurrant cordial, prunes, faint liquorice, cinnamon, baked apples and a whiff of wet logs.

Palate: Sticky and sweet – cherries and blackcurrants are back along with dates, well done malt loaf, clove, gingerbread, glazed walnuts, black tea and dark chocolate. There a hint of sulphur too – not too much, just a bit of dry, cracked rubber and leather.

Finish: Dry wood, slightly tannic and grippy, with a red currant sweetness. The woodspice lingers along with some charred logs.

Overall: Layered and complex without being disjointed, which is quite a feat considering the myriad of casks involved in this whisky’s maturation. One of the better Jura’s I’ve tried, along with this year’s Tastival expression. It seems as though the new gaffer is up to good things.
