Jura One And All 20 Year Old Review

1st September 2017
Review of the Jura distillery workers selected Jura One And All 20 year old limited edition single malt whisky.

Jura One And All 20 Year OldJura today unveiled their 2017 limited edition bottling, Jura One And All 20 Year Old.

Jura One And All was chosen by the team of Jura distillery workers who craft the remote Hebridean Island single malt whisky, a marriage of 20 year old Jura whisky which has
matured in American white oak ex-Bourbon barrels and specially prepared in sherry wood, sparkling Cabernet Franc casks, Cabernet Sauvignon casks and Pinot Noir Barriques

The Jura team got together on what I am sure was a very enjoyable day at work, on the 6th of February this year and selected the rather uncommon assemblage of single malts which certainly reflect on the companies 50 year veteran master blender Richard Paterson's creative use of wine casks for maturation.

Together the Jura distillery and the 200 inhabitants of the island which includes 17 distillery workers have re-built a thriving close knit island community since the distillery re-opened 50 years ago. Graham Logan, Jura Distillery Manager commented on the limited edition whisky saying: "Thereís no better way to mark the distillery teamís dedication and craftsmanship, than by creating a limited edition expression in their honour Ė chosen by them. In tribute to their passion and tenacity - the shared spirit that each person brings to every last drop - this special whisky is the perfect dram to toast one and all. We canít wait to hear what people think."

Jura One And All 20 year old is naturally coloured, non chill-filtered and bottled at a cask strength of 51% ABV, a limited release of 5,000 bottles it has a RRP of £120 and will be available from specialist online whisky shops such as Master of Malt

Jura One For All 20 Year Old Review

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: A lovely enticingly rich nose packed with exotic fruit, sweet iced coconut, creamy vanilla toffee.

Taste: Just as rich in the mouth
, deliciously juicy sweet barley and equally delicious cherry, orange and sultanas are joined by a little creamy toffee and a touch of spice.

Finish: Lovely dried fruits and toffee fade to leave a lingering gentle sweet oak spice end.

Comment: Simply delicious, Jura is a distillery which tends to get very good around this age and this is no exception, it has a lovely rich juicy fruitiness from nose to finish which is complemented by the creamy toffee. It isn't big in your face heavy sherried fruit, it is a more refined mouth watering juicy fruitiness which has no doubt come from the uncommon combination of casks selected by the Jura distillery workers which has resulted in a a different and very enjoyable Jura. Unlike cooking where too many chefs spoil the broth it seems when you increase the number of distillery workers choosing the whisky the result is something very good indeed. I hope Jura have rewarded the Jura distillery selection team with a bottle or two to take home.

SMW Score 92/100
