Jura One and All is a 20 year old expression celebrating the island’s tight-knit community, from the fabled ‘Diurachs’ to the distillery workers responsible for crafting the award-winning whisky. This 2017 limited edition bottling was chosen for its notes of “fruit, toffee, ginger spice, maple syrup, liquorice and white chocolate”. Released in September, 5,000 bottles have been made available worldwide.
This single malt, created by Richard Paterson, is matured in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels, as well as sherry, sparkling Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir casks. It’s bottled at a cask strength of 51% ABV, is non-chill filtered and boasts a natural warm copper hue.
Nose: There’s an aromatic quality that you would expect from the range of wine casks. Floral, with a hint of orange, marzipan and vanilla toffee.
Palate: Immediately sweet and syrupy, still vinous but not overpowering as layers of oak develop with a touch of black pepper.
Finish: The sweetness lingers, balanced by notes of gingerbread and tobacco leaf.
