New Jura 10 Year Old Oloroso sherry finished whisky.Isle of Jura whisky has announced the launch of a new Jura 10 year old single malt whisky expression in the US.

So what is different about the new Jura 10 US expression I hear you ask, well it was matured in First Fill ex-Bourbon Casks and then finished in Oloroso Sherry casks where the Jura Origin 10 year old expression available here in the UK is matured in ex-Bourbon casks but has no sherry finish. Hopefully the combination of First Fill Bourbon casks followed by the sherry finish for the new US 10 year old expression has injected some life into the Island malt which the UK 10 although a good whisky it is lacking slightly.

"The launch of the new Jura 10 celebrates our heritage of whisky-making," said Graham Logan, Jura Distillery Manager. "The craft of producing great whisky has been at the heart of Jura's close-knit community for hundreds of years and we look forward to sharing the long-standing traditions and unmistakable flavours of Jura 10's island home with the world."

While many distilleries create either peated or unpeated whiskies, Jura 10 marries together the best of both for a truly unique Island Single Malt that is subtly smoky with a sweet Sherry cask finish. It is matured for ten years in American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels with an aged Oloroso Sherry cask finish.

Jura 10 is available at retailers throughout the US with a suggested retail price of $54.99 per 750ml bottle. You will also find the current Jura whisky range available from whisky specialist shops such as Master of Malt
