Jura Whisky 12 Year Old is the latest launch from the Scotland distillery on Jura island, off the country’s West Coast.
This new single malt compliments the brand’s existing range of Jura 10 Year Old, Seven Wood and 18 Year Old.
Jura 12 Year Old matured in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels before finishing in Oloroso sherry casks. The result is a single malt with sweet warmth and rich flavors of fruity notes, the company reports. It has a honeyed sweetness, with warm spice and banana, freshly ground coffee, alongside dark chocolate with soft citrus.
“We’re delighted to welcome Jura 12 Year Old to the Jura range here in the U.S., particularly at a time when it is the fastest growing single malt brand,” says Chris Watt, president at Whyte & Mackay Americas. “Since the launch of our 10 Year Old expression in 2017, and its rising popularity as a mixable malt, the appetite for Jura Whisky has grown exponentially with fans in the U.S., and this increase in demand has led to the continued expansion of the range in the US portfolio.
Jura 12 Year Old is now available in stores throughout the U.S., for a suggested price of $49.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
