Distilled 1999 re-racked from American White Oak in September 2004 into an Oloroso Sherry butt. 400 numbered bottles.
A heavily peated Jura whisky, to commemorate the Crinan Classic Boat Festival and released exclusively during the 2007 Islay Festival of Malt and Music.
Autumn bonfire coupled with a tang of damp salt and peat. Feel the full force of sharp winds and driving rain in your face as this complex malt rolls over the palate to reveal its character of smoke, peat, tar rope and hints of lemon.
The first Isle of Jura Distillery was built at Craighouse on the Isle of Jura off the west coast of Scotland in 1810 but closed in 1901 and was subsequently demolished. The present Isle of Jura Distillery was designed by William Delmé Evans and opened in 1963. The Jura Distillery visitor centre and shop offers distillery tours and accommodation in the Jura Distillery Lodge, and the distillery supports The Malt Whisky Writers Retreat and participates in Feis Ile, the Islay Festival of Malt and Music.
