As crafters of subtly smoky, sweet whiskies, Jura Whisky understand that hand-making something unforgettable takes time. About 12 years, in their experience. So, Jura Whisky has released a new sherry finished 12 Year Old single malt which will be exclusively available in the Taiwanese market.
New Jura 12 Year Old Sherry Cask whisky has been matured in American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels for 12 years and finished in Oloroso Sherry casks from Jerez, Spain.
This special single malt delivers refined succulent tropical aromas of chocolate, walnut and citrus fruit on the nose while the taste is described with flavours of honey, salted bananas and brown sugar, with a whisper of smoke.
Commenting on the golden-hued spirit, Gregg Glass, Whisky Maker & Blender at Whyte & Mackay, remarked, “The classic style of Jura evokes the early years of modern distillation at the distillery following its reopening in 1963; a time when our tall stills and unpeated malt created a character full of fruit and vibrancy. It is this distinctive style which we wanted to bring to the Taiwanese market on an exclusive basis, demonstrating our commitment to introducing innovative new whiskies in Asia.”
Jura 12 Year Old Sherry Cask, is available to purchase at a price of 050 NT$ or USD 35 (approx.) from specialist retailers in Taiwan.
