Our oenologists' opinion
Old gold colour with copper highlights. Beautiful open and rich nose of fresh apricot, peaches followed by pineapple, iodised and salty notes. Well-balanced, full and round. Beautiful frank and fresh envelope, nice length with hints of caramel, iodine, smoke, roasting, peat.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Domain and appellation
Far from any distractions, the inhabitants of the island of Jura focus on one objective: to elaborate the best single malt that can be produced. Aged for ten years in bourbon casks, before benefiting from further refinement in top-quality aged oloroso sherry casks, Jura 12 years old brilliantly combines subtle smoky notes with the sweetness of sherry.
- Production: Coming from a selection of the best single malts from the island, this whiskey is lightly peated with hints of smoke. It is then aged in old bourbon barrels.
